I've been up in Charleston, SC for the past week (mostly working) and got to do some tourist type travel this past weekend. I thought I'd share some of my photos with you of this lovely, historic town.
This first picture is of the Joseph Manigault house that was built in 1802. I took a tour of the interior, but since they don't allow flash photography (and I didn't have my tripod with me) I'm not too happy with the way the pics came out. If you get a chance and you love old homes you need to take the tour!This is another shot of the same home. This side of the house can be seen from Meeting Street.
On the weekend there is a fabulous farmer's market full of great food, fruits, vegetables, art work, live music, and many interesting things to see. You just never know what you'll find at one. I satisfied one of my cravings by getting some boiled peanuts. Yum Yum!
Charleston is full of many interesting (and narrow!) side streets.
The Yorktown is docked here and you can take a tour. I'm planning on doing that on my next trip here.
You can see the Yorktown from the Waterfront park. An afternoon rain storm moved in while I was there, but there are places where you can go to get out of the rain. I just love the way the clouds look in this shot.
This is the Arthur Ravenel Bridge. I took this from the Mount Pleasant side.
There is much more to see in Charleston. I'm planning on coming back in a couple of weeks and will try and post some more photos.
