It’s a wonderful city and I have to do a few posts to show some of the charm of one of my favorite places. I was trying to capture not your typical tourist pictures. There are a lot of places such as Rainbow Row and the Market that I chose not to feature. Those are the places everyone posts. I wanted a little bit of a fresher view. I hope you enjoy. Please let me know what you think.
This distillery is on Wadhwa Island not far from downtown.

Outside of downtown Charleston is a tree called “Angel Oak”. Nobody knows how old it is exactly. When I was a kid we could climb on it, now it is being supported and your not allowed on it.
This is the Circular Church and in the distance you can see another steeple. Charleston is known as the “Holy City”, the city has so many churches.
The churches and sometimes houses have graveyards besides them.
Thank God Sheri shaved her leg, ha ha. Does anyone know what this is?
The Four Corners of Law, on the left City Hall ( law of the city), on the right County Courthouse (law of the county), diagonal to the right is the United States Post Office and Courthouse (law of federal) and then across the street to the left St. Michael’s Church (law of God).

Beautiful window box. I love them.
In the backyard of a Charleston home, there is a joggling board. Joggling boards rock and joggle up and down.
More iron work and window boxes.
“The Three Sisters” up there on my favorite list. Mainly because I am one of 3 girls. Legend is, this father was trying to get his daughters married. He built each daughter a house as a dowry. I am not sure if it worked.
Another amazing porch
The Battery Park. Black Beard was hung from one of these trees.
Look at this history. I haven’t seen a pay phone in a long time so I had to get this picture.
More iron work of Charleston.
Most of the ceilings of the porches are painted blue to keep the birds and some bugs from nesting. The birds think its water and wont nest near water.

I love the iron work in Charleston.
