|Old Sheldon Church Ruins|
On the way to Charleston, South Carolina for a quick afternoon visit, we went a bit out of our way to see the ruins of Sheldon Church.

Build in 1745, the church was originally destroyed by the British troops during the Revolutionary War. After being rebuilt, it was destroyed again in 1865 by General Sherman and his troops. Today, it stands proud beneath the clearing in the trees and is a popular wedding site. The day we went, there was a bride being followed by a team of photographers while rows of white chairs were being set up elsewhere.

|Trattoria Lucca, the real reason for our trip to Charleston|
After walking around for a little while, we drove over to Lucca for an early dinner. We already knew what we were going to order. Behold, the real reason for our quick trip to Charleston:
|Best. Porkchop. Ever. |
Seriously, this pork chop was incredible. I enjoy pork, but I usually avoid it at restaurants because often times I find it dry and uninspiring. This meal, however, blew me and all of my expectations out of the water. I have never had anything like it. Who wants to buy me a ticket back to Charleston so I can have another one??!
