Discovering Charleston

When I happened to get a few days off at the beginning of the New Year,  I just had to jump at the chance to get out of town for a few days.  Traveling more has always been an intention of mine and this year just has to be the year I make that jump.  Learning to live slightly different and change the things that you value in order to do more of what you want was my number one priority this year.  So it will have to be a little less shoe shopping and frivolous buying and a little more saving.

For 4 days me and my son took a quick trip up to Charleston.  I had plans to go back in October of last year but hurricane Mathew was an imminent threat so I had to put my plans off for a while.  It was a quick 4 hour drive and we were there ready to sample lots of food and do plenty of site seeing.  

 

The food on the other hand is an entire different subject and I had some of the best meals I’ve ever had.  Me and my son are still talking about the biscuits and poogans porch! Unfortunately I never get any photos of meals because I'm always too hungry to pull out my camera!

Sometimes you see pictures of a place and you see the look of it but you just have to go there to feel the vibe and pace.   I really did love the vibe of this charming part of South Carolina.  It was truly colorful and lively place.  I couldn’t help but admire every little winding road and street.  Even the alleyways were lined with pretty floral bushes and cobblestoned roads.  I visited during the winter but can’t wait to go back in spring when the magnolia trees and crepe myrtles begin to bloom.
