Charleston Charm

The French Huguenot Church
A Charleston driveway. Look at the details. Who wouldn't want to drive up to that!

My new town, Charleston, SC, has such wonderful charm. The history, the colors, the architecture, the ironwork, the churches, etc., etc. I love it here! I have taken so many photos and I am eager to take more. This place is a photographers dream. The sweet little courtyards, and magnificent gardens carved out of the tiniest of spaces. The window boxes overflowing with flowers and foliage. The cobblestone streets, the horse driven carriages, the palm get the picture. Pardon the pun.
There are some wonderful restaurants, live music at night and some great shopping. Are you psyched yet? You've gotta' come see for yourself. The beach is just a hop skip and a jump away for you sun worshipers. The aquarium is nice. I still have to check out the museums. I love that there is so much to do here.
Do you have a city that has captured your heart. Please share. I love to learn about new places. Traveling is such an adventure. Very exciting!
