Welcome to my weekly update for October 17, 2021!
We’ve moved on to my husband’s next work assignment. We’re in Charleston, SC! It’s nice to wear shorts and tees after spending the summer in Alaska in long sleeves and jeans. I don’t know how long the shorts weather will last but we’re soaking it up while we can. We’re usually only in one spot for three months before moving on, but we’re frankly tired of fighting snowbirds for campgrounds (we travel in our RV) and new traveling healthcare professionals for jobs around the new year, so we signed a six-month contract this time. We’ll be here until April! We’re only about a four-hour drive from home (Asheville, NC) so we should be able to spend some long weekends and hopefully some holidays with our family and friends.
We arrived on Thursday last week, drove up to Raleigh for my cousin’s long-awaited wedding (rescheduled twice because of covid!) and got back here last Sunday. Needless to say, we haven’t had much time to explore yet, although we have spent some long weekends in Charleston in the past.
