The good stuff

We went to Charleston last weekend, 
I told you I took a lot of pictures,
(Who, me?)
Here are the first batch.

Gelato at the Charleston Candy Kitchen

Charleston Candy Kitchen 
The Charleston Candy Kitchen is frequently our first stop, not for candy, although they do have plenty of that, but for a Gelato to share. We went for the Tiramisu flavor.
Market Street Sweets
This is the place in Charleston to go for your Pralines. Other shops offer them, but these are the very best in Charleston. 
(My Sweet Husband makes the best anywhere, but not for sale).

Starbucks on King Street 
My Traveling Companion,
Charleston is about a four hour drive from our lovely antebellum in the woods. We leave early in the morning to maximize our time so by the time we get there, we are ready for a little munch and a cuppa. My Sweet Husband usually goes for tea and I get a cup of always excellent coffee. 
Number 2 Meeting Street Inn
We spent our fifteenth wedding anniversary here, it is a beautiful place, situated on the battery of Charleston.

This lovely entrance seems so welcoming. This home is across the street from the inn. If you look closely, you can see the rope trim around the door, that signifies that the house was built with money made from the sea. 
Mack Truck
This gleaming beauty was getting lots of attention.
Usually, I am the only one taking pictures of the old vehicles. 
 I told you I was not the only one taking photos.
Doesn't this just look peaceful?  
Formal Gardens
Downtown Charleston is full of formal gardens.
Some very private, only glimpsed through an open gate.
Just walk through the neighborhoods and enjoy.

Got to go, 
more homework awaits!
