On our final morning in the Charleston area, Scottie Dad and I took the fur kids to the pier in Mt. Pleasant. The sights, the smells and the noises all sparked Heather and Mr. K's interests from the moment we arrived. They walked side by side, tails pointing up to the sky, wagging back and forth as we neared closer to the pier. We stopped along the way to take these photos and just as we were about to move on down to the pier, we saw the sign: "NO PETS ALLOWED."
I was surprised by this sign. So far, Charleston and Mt. Pleasant had been very pet-friendly. Why were no dogs allowed on the pier? A German Shepherd Dad came by on bicycle only to turn around with his pup at the sighting of the sign as well. This, by far, was the biggest disappointment of the trip. We had been looking forward to showing Heather and Mr. K the pier since we hadn't gone to the beach, much to their dismay. Since there really wasn't time to do much else that day, we all jumped back into the car and began our five hour journey back to the Scottie House.
Rest assured, our trip was still a wonderful break from life in Atlanta. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to explore. We fully expect to visit again, try new places and report our findings back to Scottie Mom friends. That being said, have you been to Charleston with your pups? What places do you recommend we stop and see next time?
