Here’s a few snaps of our wandering around Charleston. Warning, large photos.
The old Charleston Market.
A really unknown grave.
Jestine’s Kitchen, one of Charleston’s premier southern-cooking restaurants.
No pretentiousness, great food and relatively low prices.
The Joseph Manigault house has a spiffy little rotunda gate.
A reproduction of the CSS Hunley in front of the Charleston museum.
A huge old live oak tree.
This odd little conch-shell-studded structure sits on the property of Ashley Hall.
We went for a ride on the short bus. Shuttles run around the historic area and they’re free.
Charlestonians love their Confederate heroes.
A cruise ship in port with the Ravenel bridge in the background. Citizens were less than thrilled with cruise ships coming to town.
The old custom house.
Some of these graves were present long before the oak was an acorn.
