Meanwhile back in Charleston

Howdee all,

Welcome to Charleston, SC

I am not a city gal, I don’t often go to Galleries, Museums or nightclubs..

Give me the wilds, the woods, the beach..that is where I am most at home.

Though, occasionally…I enjoy small bits and bites of city life.

Charleston_037Jeff and I went into Charleston on Sunday to walk around and take in the sights.

Charleston is a lovely small city..very walkable..


We happened on

Second Sunday~when King Street is closed to vehicle traffic..

I didn’t take any photos of the street full of people and vendors..

I did get this photo of these cute ladies in their Fancy hats..


Store fronts decorated with spring flowers..

Charleston_044We wandered around aimlessly just taking in the sights ..

Charleston_034The architecture..

Charleston_104The gardens..


I LOVED peering thru closed gates into private gardens..


This pineapple fountain has no lifeguard on duty but you can walk in it to cool off on a hot day.  Smile


There are hundreds of charming homes..

I wanted to go into each and every one.Charleston_090

There are still a few cobbled streets..Charleston_060

The cherry trees are blossoming


Lovely against the pinkish brick

This town is stewed in history


Just take some time to visit and see the famous people buried here.

Charleston_038And wealth…yes, there was and still is much wealth in this town.

Jeff and I are now at the RV park in Hollywood. We plan on staying here until Sunday, then head to Hunting Island, SC.

Beach time again!
