Folly Beach - 2017
We are still landlocked in Folly Beach as we wait for our boat's re-powering to be completed. We continue to explore the low country by car. Since today might be our last day to explore Charleston for a while, I decided to make the city of Charleston the subject of this blogpost.

and James Island.
|Maggie had a very unique and delicious salad with |
her lunch--it included watermelon radishes
(shown on her fork).
|These stairs are typical on old buildings in Charleston. |
For lack of a better name, I call them "southern stairs."
A Brief History of Charleston
1670: Founded by English colonists and named Charles Town. (Slave labor was used from the beginning and the port city was used to transport rice, cotton, and indigo from the nearby plantations to Europe.)
