Quick Trip to Charleston


Afner and I decided to take a quick, inexpensive trip to Charleston, SC this past week.  I have a friend who lives there and we stayed at his apartment, and spent a few days enjoying all the beauty of Charleston.  Of course, I took my girls along and introduced them to one of the finest cities in the South.

The first day, we went to the Isle of Palms and spent a day on the beach.

No swimming!

Later that evening, we washed all the sand off and went into Charleston to see the city at night.

We spent the rest of the night looking for ghosts, but we didn't find any, much to our disappointment.  Better luck next time!

    The first time I read about this city, Charleston, was in: "Scarlett", the sequel to "Gone with the Wind", even if I didn't like such a second part, I now feel fine to watch your holidays in this beautiful place!
