Charleston Continued

Another day spent walking around Charleston. Our friend, Adrian, left today to go back home to St. Augustine. We had a great time with him and are looking forward to seeing him in the Fall.

The Piccolo Spoleto Festival, an arts festival celebrating theatre, dance, music, literature and visual arts, has been going on, so we walked to Marion Square to look at some of the artwork that was being displayed. An artist by the name of Victoria Platt Ellis had some incredible mixed media artwork. She takes sailing charts and incorporates them in with her oil paintings to create truly unique pieces. Her artwork was by far my favorite.

Around lunch time, we found an incredible deli on Cannon Street called Dell’z Deli. I was so happy to have found it because after all that walking, I was hungry! Dell’z uses fresh ingrediants like homemade hummus, sprouts, cucumber, jalapenos and field greens to create delicious salads, wraps, tacos and pizzas. This vegan, vegetarian and meat-lover deli is the place to go when you want something fresh and light! It’s small though (a bar, where you order, with 3 stools), so I would definitely recommend getting a to-go order. Matt and I split “The Hummer”, a wrap with black bean hummus, cilantro, salsa, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers, avocado, field greens, drizzled with lime and added turkey to our order. It was delicious!

After another long day of walking, we spent the rest of the day hanging out on the boat and enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

I found this cool, free postcard from a local Charleston surf shop
