Right when my tour group walked into the back of the house, the thunderstorm hit. It made for a great soundtrack to the tour guide's stories.
After the rain let up I went to Bonaventure Cemetery to drive around for the last quarter of an hour that it was open for the day.
No wonder a Bonaventure Historical Society was created. This cemetery is lovely with a lot of history!
I headed back to Charleston where it rained all day. So, what does one do while on a rainy vacation? Make dessert of course!
I bought some cute popsicle molds and went to work.
And, of course, I made a mess in a kitchen that isn't mine. :) (Thanks, Ward!)
Watermelon & Blueberry Tequila Popsicles (my own recipe!)
5 cups of chopped seedless watermelon
1 cup of washed blueberries
1/4 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of tequila
8 popsicle molds
Blend all ingredients together in a blender and then strain the blended mixture to make sure there aren't any seeds etc left over. Fill popsicle molds and after an hour in the freezer, insert popsicle sticks. Let freeze for at least 6 hours. Enjoy!
