A couple of days ago I had an email from tinalynne of Book Blob thanking me for giving them The Versatile Blogger Award. She went on to say that she loved my post, https://photosfromtheloonybin.wordpress.com/2011/11/18/peace-and-tranquility/, about Charleston, SC and that it was exactly how she pictured it after reading a novel that took place in Charleston. I usually only post one photo per day, but I told tinalynne that I would do another post about Charleston to show her some of the beautiful old houses that we saw.
On the day that we walked around the old neighbourhoods of Charleston, I was the epitome of a tourist because my camera was glued to my face, snap snap snapping away. Many of the houses are mansions on streets lines with beautiful mature trees (including palm trees), and you can even take guided tours of some of them. Look at the detail in the architecture and how well loved these houses are. That was one of my favourite aspects of Charleston – everything is clean and well cared for. It is hands down one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen.
Even more impressive are the municipal buildings and churches at the heart of the city. Stay tuned tomorrow for some shots of the downtown.
