Heading back to Florida tomorrow, but will be back to Charleston often. Glad I got to enjoy the downtown life.
Picked-up dinner at Burbage's Self Service Grocery. While I'm sure a significant portion of their business is tourist, this place has a real resident vibe.
Looks a bit like a rainforest (and feels like one today), but it's in the middle of Charleston. The Gateway walk connects the tourist heavy King Street to a Lutheran cemetery.
Harken on Queen Street in Charleston is a magical place. Been here so many times for breakfast several of the employees know my name. If you've seen the Queen's Gambit when Beth is in Paris, that's the vibe inside.
Everyone that spends time in Charleston seems to post one of these. I'm not a fan. This bridge design is used by other cities and it reflects the expense we will layout for commerce. It's an idol to cars that cross over it and cars in ships that go under it. We will do anything for cars.
This was the brick and moss covered path to exit a parking lot in downtown Charleston. Yes, that is a gas street light, too.
Visited our first Charleston area plantation, Middleton Place. Home of Arthur Middleton signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Yesterday, the block lost power. Cause of transformer blowing was a 🐿️. Poor critter. Anyway, was a good excuse to finish the day at Clerk's Coffee which is quiet in the afternoons. Thanks Clerk's for the wifi!
Today after work, we went into the South of Broad neighborhood and explored some alleys. Specifically, we went to Stoll's.
This Sunday we started the day at Seacoast Church and ended the day at Kiawah Island. Exploring.
First Saturday as a Charleston (summer) resident and I walked to the grocery store three times. Twice for breakfast (French toast) and one time for dinner (spaghetti and olive oil).
