Charleston City Scenes

As a continuation of our flying last-minute trip, we added a short 6 hours to see my beloved aging grandmama and her lovely city. How nice that my parents happened to be there on their summer visit as well.

After welcoming hugs, a night's rest, and a good southern cookin' breakfast, we set of for downtown Charleston. We drove past The Battery and stopped near Waterfront Park

City scape...sigh. Not your usual downtown skyscrapers.

Seriously, who simply could not fall in love with this genteel city of gated hidden gardens, rainbow-colored houses, patios set for entertaining, palmettos rustling in the sea breeze, carriage horses clip-clopping, and historic market vendors weaving grass roses.
Ahh Charleston.
