Exploring different cities even for a second time offers a deeper look into the city. Tasting their foods and dipping into their cultures is always an exciting adventure for me, discovering new things and tastes.
Here are a few photos from my recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina. Posting to City Daily Photo.
Welcome to Charleston
"He who would travel happily must travel light."

One of my most favorite things to do, not just here in Charleston, but also Savannah, Georgia are the quaint, mostly private and yet so many visible secret little gardens, pathways and alleyways to those roaming by. Of course there is a private garden tour I have yet to take, so I know I'll need to return again sometime.

Not only are new miracles blooming everywhere you go, but there are also amazing vehicles and sometimes odd, (a town of makeshift vehicles and golf carts all around.

"If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden."
Frances Hodgson Burnet
We took a most delightful Pirate Ghost Tour and we each received a genuine shark tooth even!
"Charleston is an extraordinary place. There is a deep connection between the residents and nearly three hundred and fifty years of history, and those ties between daily life and the distant past are strengthened by the occasional glimpse beyond the veil."
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!
Take good care of you.
