I haven’t been blogging for quite a while – it’s good to be back!
Recently we visited Charleston, South Carolina, and took some pictures in the old part of the city, on the Peninsula and “South of Broad,” to quote the title of a favorite Pat Conroy novel.
These houses above are part of “Rainbow Row” – all with beautiful pastel colors.
Walking around the streets, it’s easy to picture Charleston life in 1700’s – genteel and slow paced. The people of Charleston are friendly and open, even with the barrage of tourists.
Most of the pictured houses are along the Battery, the extreme south end of the peninsula. There is a walkway along the water. Just out of the frame to the left is Fort Sumter. My dear spouse Marjorie enjoys the view here.
All the houses are immaculately kept up. I had mixed success capturing the houses without any ugly modern vehicles to spoil the view.
If you haven’t been to Charleston, it should definitely be on your list!
