One my favorite parts of Charleston was just walking around the amazing historic district of old AWESOME homes in Charleston. They are all amazing. And right on the water. I took a million pictures and tried to weed out my favorites. I'd like to write more, but I want to get this post up today before my computer is packed away for like a month! And I'm really tired (I went to 8am church this morning--who has church at 8?!)
Boone Hall Plantation-a few scenes from The Notebook were filmed here! Which means I need to rewatch it. Duke is thrilled.
My favorite part was the Avenue of Oaks leading up to Boone Hall. The trees were planted more than 250 years ago in two evenly spaced rows and now the branches meet and form the loveliest of paths up to the home. It's amazing. The image above I took, the image below I got from google images because it's much prettier than mine :)
obsessed with these zinnias!
the original slave quarters. I guess not many of these still exist! Cool to see
One of (or maybe the only?) still standing slave trade markets left standing. They've turned it into a museum and we didn't have time, but walked by.
Goodbye Charleston! I will be back! (last cool pic my mom took-have to give her credit!)
