Road Trip Day 4: Charleston

Road Trip Day 4: Charleston

Yes, really. This is still about the 4th day of our road trip.

We’d gone to South of the Border. We saw a plantation. And now we’d finally made it to Charleston, with a little bit of light to spare. Charleston wasn’t in our original plan, so we didn’t really know what to expect, or what to see when we got there. So our first stop was an art gallery to see what local artists were painting or photographing in their town. And that is seriously how we decided what sights we should get in in the remaining time we had. It actually wasn’t a bad way to sight-see. If we hadn’t done that, we’d never have learned about rainbow row or the pineapple fountain until well after dark.

When it finally did get too dark, I kicked back with a deep-fried soft shell crab and a mint julep. Heaven. I love the south.

Photos from Charleston:

I am completely enamored with the antebellum architecture in Charleston. For some reason, this is how I imagine Anne of Green Gables to have lived, although with more yard. I wished for houses like this when I was a kid.

And of course, I had to take a photo of the pineapple fountain
