We stayed in the historic downtown area where one can stroll for blocks and blocks just admiring the overflowing flower boxes and flickering lantern lit secret entryways.
I kept thinking, "People live here? Everyday? In this sheer loveliness?"
For someone, this is home.
For Americans, this is an old city. It became Charleston in 1783 but began as Charles Towne in 1670 in honor of King Charles II of England.
*Speaking of England, will you be watching the royal wedding? I will!*
Well, that's it for the tour today. If you come back tomorrow I'll share the more mysterious aspects of this alluring city in part 2. In part 3 I'll take you on a tour of a plantation which includes a 1,000 year old oak tree.
Enjoy your day!
