To Charleston with Love

Joshua and I just returned tonight from a lovely trip to Charleston. The city is rich in history, shopping, entertainment, and fun. We enjoyed a walking tour of the busy downtown section of Charleston. The sights and sounds are fantastic!

On Monday, Joshua and I enjoyed walking around historic downtown Charleston. We started out at the Market with vendors and shops, getting a pretty scarf and ornaments while there. Next we visited the pier and park with the two fountains. Then off to find lunch...We ended up at the neatest maritime restraunt/museum called the Buccaneer. It was deliciouso! After that we headed back to the inn for a quick rest and to take our goodies back to the room. We ventured back out and took a stroll around the Battery and Waterfront Park. The homes were exquisite...boasting of columns, ornate architecture, molding...what a neat area for photos. We had fun walking around the park and taking funny pictures with the statues and cannons. On the way back to the inn we ventured to Church street where the name tells all and a church is on almost every other block. I enjoyed a tour of the Fuschia tea room and emporium as well, and Joshua liked the art galleries and studios.
That evening we went out to North Charleston for a fun dinner.On Tuesday, the weather was quite a different story from Monday's sunshiney chill. We did walk back to the market and around the block for shopping, photos, and a tour of St. Phillip's chapel which was not open to visitors on Monday. After an hour in the misting rain, we decided that North Charleston's mall and shops may be more in our plan according to the weather. Shopping on our way out of Charleston was the thing to do. If we saw something interesting or that caught our fancy on the way home we stopped. What a fun ending to such a great trip.

We arrived safely home to a precious pup who had missed her parents terribly. We really appreciate Pastor and Mrs. Bernice puppysitting while we were away.
