I made my long time friend Linda's new home in Wilmington, North Carolina my base and traveled from there. While in Wilmington Linda, her husband, daughter Sarah and myself drove down for a weekend in Charleston, South Carolina and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I hope there is another visit to Charleston in my future and I hope to do the 10km walk there as well. You can always see more on a good long walk!!!
