Friday (Absalom Jones)
Using a small-market airport is convenient but risky. As we were packing late last night an email came through that our 6am departing flight to Chicago was canceled. After considering several options, we booked ourselves on the 6:32 train and changed our reservation to a later flight from Chicago to Charleston. Took advantage of Amtrak's internet connection to get some work en route to Union Station, and had a substantive phone conversation with the Dean of Nashotah House. Once in Chitown, we elected to take a taxi to O'Hare rather than deal with the CTA Blue Line on a cold day. Once checked in and through security, we had time for a simple but leisurely meal, and some more productivity. We touched down in Charleston around 5pm local time, picked up our rental car, and made our way to the Doubletree in the historic district. After settling in, we walked over to King Street and got reacquainted with a wonderful BBQ joint that we discovered two years ago on our first visit. Looking forward to an active weekend with the people of the Church of the Holy Communion.
