June 6, Charleston,South Carolina 

My brother ,his wife and another couple, who were friends ,invited hubby and I to go to Charleston for a short visit! We had the most enjoyable time. The weather was alittle warm but there was a nice wind which made the warm day pleasant.


This is the Calhoun Manison built in 1876 by George Williams at the cost of $200,000. Today it is private owned but you can pay for a schedule tour. To see beautiful photos of the inside go to ..http://www.calhounmansion.net. 


Another beautiful home.. It is for sale,so if you wanted to move where the weather is warm with a wind that’s often blowing also you have a wallet that’s” really full “and you wish to unload some $. This maybe the home for you. 


A side entrance to the home above.


Beautiful gardens



Old paths between homes..


Grave yard with many old headstones. 

And we enjoy a boat ride..



Shrimp boats pulling up nets to head towards shore.

The Laffey was known as the “ship that wouldn’t die.” Off Okinawa in 1945, no less than five kamikaze planes hit her, as well as three bombs. And she lives today. The Yorktown was our 10th aircraft carrier, commissioned in 1943 and named after the aircraft carrier Yorktown that went down in the Battle of Midway. Its service was legendary, including the Vietnam War and the recovery of the Apollo 8 astronauts and their capsule in 1968. 


Tried to take a close up, but my little iPhone 4s doesn’t do this very good.

    I’ve only been to Charleston once but I loved it! Such a gracious city, with those beautiful homes. And my husband was stationed on the Yorktown, as part of a Marine detachment, and was the bodyguard for one the Apollo 8 astronauts! He took us all around the ship when we were there and showed us tile work he did that’s still there!

    My brother likes Charleston, he lives in Ohio, so they visit a couple of times a year. He has often said how beautiful it is with the old houses etc. Now I can see for myself, love the burial ground 🙂

      So glad you could get a glimpse of it then! It is a beautiful place, there are also wonderful churches to visit but I was with the group and so I was limited as to where I wanted to go.😊 I’m in Ohio right now in Cleveland as hubby is going to some business classes,as of right now he is taking some test,and I’m sewing .

        Maybe next time you can see a couple of churches. Sounds like a lovely day, I had a day of work to do a great pile of ironing, think I would have rather been sewing 🙂 My brother lives near Marietta City in Washington County, Ohio, which I think is the other end to Cleveland 🙂
