Sue and I did however go to Charleston, SC over the Thanksgiving holiday to visit friends Paul and Gloria. We had a wonderful time, and I did get to see some of that old mystique and charm that Southern mansions can provide. We walked around the East Battery section, and Atlantic and Church St.
|Nice Ocean-Side property|
I could have sat for hours and just studied the buildings. But, being conscious of my wife, and our hosts, I did the touristy-thing, and just took snapshots and kept moving, not wanting to hold anyone up for too long. Here are a few shots from the area..
|The Pink House...|
|Nicely trimmed stairs|
|Argyle and Green Door|
|Even the filthy-rich read the morning papers...|
|Which way do I go?|
|Now that's more like it!!|
|St. Michael's Church|
|This was one of my favorites...And it's FOR SALE! |
(For around 9 mil)
Welcome to my new home
|Eh-Too much traffic for me...|
Took a lot more pictures around the city, and since I'm a couple weeks behind on my posts, I'll catch up soon with some more Charleston scenery.
We had a great Thanksgiving and visit with our friends. Hope the holidays were good for you too.
Before I go, here is a quiz for you kids. Found this specimen at White Point Garden Park in Charleston.
|Can you kids guess what this is? |
And it worked!
Answer to Todays Quiz:
If you guessed "Ketchup Dispenser", give yourself 10 points. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, you're one of the lucky ones.
If you guessed "p-Phone", give yourself 5 points.
Oh, and as a bonus, if you can direct me to some local (to Charlotte) old buildings, I'll give you 25 extra points. I'd really appreciate it!
Thanks, Talk soon....
