      Thank you, I would love to find out some of the history of those places…they have a “ghost tour,” bet it’s amazing.

        I bet it is! We were there in April, and went on a few tours, but not that one. After a while, it seemed like the tour guides were all telling us the same old stories. Btu I think maybe the ones they don’t tell are as interesting. Have you read Sue Monk Kidd’s recent book, The Invention of Wings? It is set in Charleston, and the house in which the main character lives is still there. It is interesting.

        No, thanks for mentioning it! I am looking forward to “Wings”! I love Sue Monk Kidd!

        me, too, and this book is great. I didn’t realize it was based on a real person until the end when she thanked the people who currently own the house for giving her access. 🙂

    Gorgeous little city! We briefly drove through it on one of our trips down to Florida and back, years ago and I have been hankering to go back ever since. The one day we went into Baltimore, I forgot to bring my camera or I would have some nice pix of some beautiful churches and such. Went to the Walter’s Art Museum but the floor I really wanted to see (1900 Century Art) was closed for renovation. Guess I will just have to go back sometime. ;o]

    I haven’t been to Charleston in years but your photos remind how beautiful it is. I love those side porches to catch the breeze.

    Your pictures are fabulous! We took the ghost tour several years ago and it was fascinating. I see you have “orbs” in your last picture. 🙂
