You have to admit that there is something about the city of Charleston, South Carolina. I’ll admit it for you. First, there is a beloved friend that beckons a visit. Second, there is an otherworldly culinary scene. And finally, there is weather to welcome….so, naturally, all three are a near perfect – if not perfect, combination. We traveled there recently for a rest from all this snow and cold. Just a little rest.
How do you get over the winter blues we have been having in NY? With live oak trees that look like this:
…and tea based cocktails with spiced rum from a fabulous restaurant called Tavern and Table that look like this:
…and homes full of history that look like this:
…and these aren’t even the Rainbow Row homes, or the mansions on the water, or the plantations…
…or old store fronts revealing their former, and now current, glory:
and desserts that look like this:
…and BLT sandwiches from Prohibition that look like this:
…and more glorious architecture and details:
…and the charm of all the porches with roofs painted the mandatory haint blue.
…and countless other meals, and, ahem, cocktails, that one could physically handle in 5 days.
…and how many people greet you (to a northerner, WHOA).
…and the sunshine in every one of these photos.
…and making memories with a friend and a husband.
…and…you get the idea…right?
