Okay. Let's just get to it.
This morning we woke up, and Shawn went out into the fields where the horses were on James' Island in South Carolina, just oustide of Charleston, and after the horses were rounded up gave a hand putting up a new fan in a horse stall, climbing the metal jailbar doors with his boots on to plug the fan in.
So, yes, last night we stayed on a Horse Farm. Or a horse stable. Or a plantation, on the outskirts of the salt marshes, and the coast. There was a 600 foot dock that was leading out to the river, that was full of brackish water, where our friend Rachel, the horse keeper, informed us there was bioluminescense. We tested this last night at 2am, when it was so dark the milky way stretched from horizon to horizon and the sky was navy blue and indigo. And sure enough, after skipping over some missing planks in the so-long-it-is-surreal-to-walk-on dock, we saw it. Spashing your feet in the inky black water made ripples and fireworks of copper-green, waves of glowing hues, and spray of lime greens on a sable backdrop.

A few hours previous we were hanging out at the Tin Roof, getting advice on pinball, enjoying Pabst Blue Ribbon, and learing that our good friend Josh Roberts (and the Hinges) have a shot there named after them. Big thanks to Lesley and Nick (you have a badass Honda CL175 motorcycle there buddy), as well as Shawn, Trey, Brittany, Justin, Eric, Mollie, Rob (the Throb), Jaime, Tara, and Philip at the Tin Roof for their kind words and hospitality. And thanks to Rachel for being crazy enough to let us chase horses around in the middle of the night.
