The Beach

I think I would like to be right inside this photo today.  I love the beaches along the Atlantic.

Fall is Here - I Miss Summer Already

Fall is here and it is in the air.  Leaves litter my yard.  Soon they all will have left the branches of the trees they so recently joined.  I am sad.  Winter follows and the brown, barren trees will laugh at us.  When that happens, I will have my flowery green pictures to look at to get me through until spring and the return of the green!

Firecracker Bill

This isn't just ANY little red house.  This is Firecracker Bill's.  Crackers is on Hwy 17 in Mount Pleasant and is an institution in fireworks!  This is where anyone who is anyone gets their fireworks all year long.  I pass this every day and it makes me smile to live where I live.  NEVER, ever would you see something like this in San Diego!!

White Grillwork

Grillwork is usually - almost always - black. So this white grillwork grabbed my attention. Right or wrong, I love it! What a beautifully intricate design!

This is just a small sample of some of the steps you see on the homes downtown. I need to collect more!

Street Numbers

I have always wanted to have a one or two digit street address. I think this is as close as I will ever get. I love the ones on the lovely homes downtown.

Battery Park

Battery Park is a must for visitors.  I took this when our friends from California were visiting.  I marvel at the oak trees every time I visit!  I love this place!

Brick and Plaster

This old house that has been renovated is really interesting.  You can see the old brick that was used in the early construction.  Back when the house was originally built it was common to construct it of brick and then overlay that with plaster, scoring it to look like stone.  This home shows both the brick and the plaster which is unusual - but fun and interesting!

Aches and Columns - Charleston Style

I just don't tire of the variety of columns that I find around town.  Would you like to join me on this porch for a nice cold iced tea?
