03 Sep Charleston Vacation Part III
I promised you a bit more tour of our trip, and here were are. If you had not read our trip to Charleston SC and it beaches, here is PART I and PART II. This was one of the beautiful doors and part of architecture in Charleston.
I do have a fascination with doors and architecture and it is amazing in Charleston. It can be a law office or dentists,and still be amazingly beautiful. This was taken in front of a Charleston Historic Landmark called The Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon. Now, it is nothing torrid, but rather “ Is the Old Exchange Building a fancy architectural jewel designed to house 18th-century assemblies? Or is it the ghoulish prison of the Revolution, the place where the martyr Isaac Hayne spent his last night? Or is it the place where George Washington greeted his fellow citizens? And there is no question that slaves were sold for generations next to the very balcony from which the Declaration of Independence was read.

I had to step into this window as again, a detailed and stunning view of this circular window caught my eye.
I will be getting back to Charleston, but have to show you pictures of the beach. I feel like this post could easily go on for weeks with as many pics as my husband took, but…
Kiawa Island is amazing with its natural beauty and free from neon signs and too many tourists. The mash lands, green and brown, and the spectacular view is just what was needed. Both my husband and I love the pristine more quiet beaches, and Kiawa is just that. Coastal Living states it is ” The Happiest Seaside town in America.” I could live there.
Just to take you away a bit, I have to mention a fabulous store I went into in Aberdeen, a section of Charleston. It caught my eye with the sign, Upscale Womens resale. The Name: REINVENTED Great name! The owner, Beth Cook,HERE ( second from left) and sales assistant Sara were so wonderfully warm and helpful. I felt as if I had known them for awhile. Doesn’t shopping for treasures and unique pieces do that to women? I told them of the blog, and they were just so very hospitable. I did end up walking out of there with some purchases i will show you later. Here are some pictures of the shop. You can also check them out on Facebook. So, if you live near Charleston, check them out!
Loved this antique cash register! Some lovely antique inspired jewelry. Very romantic pieces!
Of course I was drawn in to the accessory and jewelry counter!
The Raven’s Author Poe rests here with his girlfriend. When we first went to Charleston, years ago, I was determined to go on a Ghost Walk. This was one of the cemeteries we visited. I love doing that sort of thing. Cemeteries can hold a fascination, as histories of families sometimes do. If you visit, I know it is a touristy thing to do, but it is very interesting in the dead of night ….
( A Starbucks on every corner!) The wonderful Francis Marion Hotel was where we stayed another trip. ( You had the view of the inside on PART I of my trip)
(The above pic will not be remaining on the site for long… ) Hubby had to get this one right before leaving to go to the beach. Reversible Cherry Blossom Bikinia. ( My Habit) My friend encouraged me to put it up.
Hope everyone enjoyed my Charleston Vacation pictures. There were many more, but I wanted to give you a taste of the beach, things we did, places we ate etc. We stayed 4 days but was able to do alot, as my illness cooperated, and it was a break with both needed. Now, this one below, WILL stay up! So besides being a fashion post today, some of my readers expressed an interest to visit Charleston, and I hope I was helpful in some of the places to go 🙂
