Fri: May & family arrived on this beautiful spring day and this is what I have been looking forward to for a long time, to have my whole family together. First time for me and this is what makes my journeys worth the while.

As the only rotating restaurant in SC,  the view that Top of Carolina/18th floor has to offer is delightful. The retro designed and marble floor fittings as you step out of the elevator bringing back some memory from 5 Temengong Rd/SIN. Was trying to capture the sunset with the flag on the CAE State House but the angles are just not with me this round!

The food was OK here. Publix’s chocolate birthday cake was specially ordered by Linn. What was more important is to have family & friends together…

Appreciations to Lock&May/Canada, Dika/Chicago,  AT hikers John/Charleston and Glenda & Franklin/NC for taking time to celebrate with us. Safe journeys to them.

Sun: thank you to Ingrid&HansK for the ‘kransekake’ hand-carried by May from Norway. Brunch catered by ‘Lizard’s Thicket’ before heading to Edisto Beach, app 3hrs drive to a beach front house to relax for a few days.
