Being Squirrel

Charles Town

I arrived on a 30 seater plane in Charleston, SC and one of the first things I was told was the mosquitos don’t bite the locals- they only bite the tourists! Of course, they especially love California girls! I escaped the hungry little dudes with 11 bites only….but those flying bloodsuckers are not going to keep this Squirrel girl away from one of the most charming cities I have ever been in my Squirrel life!

It all began with our 16 room boutique hotel called Zero George. It’s a collection of historic homes transported into a sanctuary for their guests. Our room was located in a beautiful, restored, home with covered porches and gas lit lanterns that reminded me of the movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” There on George Street, I fell in love…

Squirrel score, when you check into your hotel and there’s a chef busy cooking away…oh and he’s only a two time Chopped champion. Vincent Perillo is a visually stunning chef with flavors that burst with each bite. I snapped some photos of him and he sort of scowled at me….cuz you know, Chefs are the new rock stars! 🙂

Our room was on the second floor in the main house pictured below…tres charm!


Charles town is a historic city where tourism drives the economy. You see a lot of horse drawn carriages. I didn’t take one but I will next time…it was too hot!

The Charleston nights are magical and filled with mystery and romance. Walking the streets you felt completely safe. The Doc and I walked every evening and were welcomed by the canopied tree line streets, historic architecture, and houses that were each lit by gas lanterns; we were transported to another world that made you want to come back for more. Charleston, just might be the next home for House of Squirrels.
