Isle of Palms - 2016
Nov 19 thru Nov 20
Still stranded here at Isle of Palms Marina, we rented a car again this weekend so see more sights around Charleston, South Carolina.
On Saturday we drove onto Charleston for general sightseeing. We didn't have an agenda.
|The streets of Charleston are lined with palm trees |
and what we would consider tropical plants.
|Horse-drawn carriages line up on North Market Street |
as they start their tours around the city.
|Colorful blooming flowers decorate the window boxes of |
historic homes in Charleston. This is the middle
of November and flowers are blooming!
|Many of the buildings in downtown Charleston are old |
warehouses. This simple blue warehouse door is
an example of the colors of Charleston.
|Making and selling sweetgrass baskets is an art passed |
down through the generations. Each basket
is handmade and unique.
|Every day we drive into Charleston we cross the |
Arthur Ravenal Jr. Bridge shown above.
|We took a tour of Charleston Harbor this afternoon on m/v |
Carolina Belle. We learned a lot about the history of
Charleston but didn't get many good photographs
because most things were simply too
far away from the boat.
|This is the north side of Charleston |
along the Cooper River.
|There are many different views of the Arthur Ravenal Jr. Bridge |
in this blog--this one is from the water below the bridge.
This bridge is certainly a unique structure!
We're really getting to know our way around Charleston and it is a beautiful city with a lot of character.
Thanks for following our blog!
