Trip to the deep South...

Mikki and I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting Charleston and the deep South. What food! What relaxation. We've loved driving the countryside and looking at the architecture of this fine historical city. We visited the Charleston Museum today and got a great overview of the wars and the plantation / slave age. Amazing history here. On Saturday we visited Beaufort, SC. Wonderful architecture there as well, but the highlight was the lighthouse.

Looking North from the top of the lighthouse

This is a garage with an apartment overhead... Love the smile! Saw this on a website for Frederick & Frederick architects weeks back and just happened to drive up on it. 

Probably the narrowest building I've ever seen. Downtown Charleston. Maybe 9 ft? 10ft? 

Old window in Charleston

Doors wonderfully refinished, or rebuilt. Couldn't really tell, but well done, either way.

Fair to Middling... this has to be where it originated. King Cotton! 

Remember this? Unfortunately I do...
