Be a Tourist - Fort Sumter

On Tuesday, Suzie and I took the boys to Fort Sumter.  I haven't been there since I was a small child so I have no recollection of it.  Despite the cold wind coming off the ocean, it was a great adventure.  The boat ride to the fort was fun - the boys had a great time looking at other passing boats, birds, etc.  Once docked, we saw some porpoises playing.  It was cold but lots of fun.

Hughes and Banks enjoying some brotherly time on a gun beside the ticket office - no, they didn't have these kind of guns at the Fort, more like cannons!
Banks still enjoying the big gun.
Hughes and Conley inside the Fort.  There is no climbing on any of the structures or cannons - this made for a lot of "don't climb" and  "get down" by me and Suzie.
Hughes and Conley climbing the mounds right next to the sign "stay off the mounds".  They were being so sweet - picking flowers (more like weeds).  Conley was giving his to his mom.  Hughes kept his!

Hughes and Conley on their way back to the boat.  Been there, done that, check it off!
