It is difficult for me to think of a lovelier city than Charleston. Anyone who has visited before knows exactly what I mean, I'm sure. The city itself is a giant peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water. You get the breeze from the harbor, the gorgeous views and the beach is only 5 minutes away. And the city is known for its beautiful, historic southern homes, painted gorgeous colors. Then there are gardens, parks, palm trees, shopping and lots and lots of food.
Its also a great walking city. I love walking in beautiful places like this. And we did a lot of walking the day we spent in Charleston while on our beach trip. It was our last day and it was raining all morning, so we decided to drive over the bridge and head into downtown historic Charleston. I was so happy we got to visit being that the beach house was only a short drive from the city.
We did A LOT of walking that day. The kids held up great (with some help :)
We found these awesome swings overlooking the water. Lovely!!
The "big girls" were so cute, holding hands most of the day!
Joe enjoyed all the hot sauce stores at the Market.
After walking a good part of the city, splashing in some fountains,
eating ice cream and visiting a candy shop, we headed home.
It was hard to leave Charleston and the beach. It was a wonderful vacation!
