Then we made our way back onto Front Street and found ourselves sampling chocolates and ice creams at Sweeties Homemade Ice Cream and Sweets. My 2-yearold suddenly found herself without complaints as she inhaled the oh-socreamy hand-churned vanilla. I darted in and out of several charming gift shops and general stores as we made way back to the car when I spotted one of my favorite spots of the day. The Georgetown Art Gallery seemed to wave me over from the corner where it sat. When I walked inside, I found displays from 20 local artists drawing me into different wonders of the Lowcountry. I then learned that all the artists have collaborated to keep the gallery alive, each taking turns working in the establishment. Artist Sissy Carroll explained, “It’s a co-op. What’s unique is that this started 26 years ago, and that it’s continued ever since.” In the store to drop off some freshly finished pieces, artist Johnnie Cowan added, “What’s good is the variety. We’re all different. We have oils, watercolors, pastels, engravings, encaustics and even textiles.” I suggest paying them a visit for a little culture and a whole lot of friendly smiles on your journey. Just don’t forget to wipe the chocolate off your face like I did. As we made our way back to Charleston County, we were exhausted. It had been a long day. The baby slept. My husband gazed at the road with a tiny smile on his face and I faded in and out with my head against the glass. This time we kept the music off and simply reflected on a day well spent. It was one of those days that will matter years from now. It wasn’t typical work. It was an adventure; an adventure right in our own backyard.
