My meeting ended early Friday, so K. picked me up and we grabbed tacos and sangria (yum!) at Zia Taqueria before heading to Folly Beach for a walk. Then we met a friend of mine from college for an early dinner at Shem Creek. Did I mention the weather was about 10 degrees above normal for January? We ate dinner on a deck overlooking the river. Or is it a marsh? Canal? I'm not sure what all of those waterways in Charleston are called, but it was gorgeous.

Painting class: Totally fun. If you have something like this in your area, I highly recommend it. It makes a great girls' night out (something different from the usual dinner and drinks) and could also make for a really fun, unique date night.
The studio had all of the supplies we needed already set up - easel, canvas, brushes, and paints. We supplied the wine. A lot of people brought munchies too - finger sandwiches and veggie trays and so on. The instructor takes the class through the painting step-by-step, so anyone can do it. No need to be an artist. I think our paintings turned out pretty well. We painted a landmark Charleston bridge, so it is a perfect keepsake from my trip. I really can't believe I painted that! And everyone's paintings looked great. Not identical, but all great in their own ways.

Unfortunately, there aren't any studios near us. Bummer. I guess I'll just have to go back to Charleston and take Hubby with me this time.
