Charleston South Carolina

I have wanted to go to Charleston since I was a small girl. No lie! I remember learning about the history and seeing pictures of the Spanish moss hanging from the trees & the "old world" kind of beauty that the city possesses. Then after I saw The Notebook I was done for. I just had to get there. A lot of the movie was filmed in Charleston and surrounding area.

Well, I finally got to go this last weekend!! It was fabulous and though we only spent one night, we packed a lot in. My husband and I took a "Ghosts in the Graveyard" tour at 10pm through the old city streets and cemeteries. For me it was absolutely thrilling and I have a lot of spooky graveyard shots with some strange stuff going on in the pics, but I will save those for a later post closer to Halloween.

We went to Folly Beach right before pulling out of town and it was just a wonderful getaway.
I HIGHLY recommend going if you get the chance.
Enjoy the pics.

You took some amazing shots! I thought you said your camera was acting funny. You took some beautiful photos!

I want to go to Charleston so bad!! It looks so cool. We almost moved there. I'll have to settle on at least visiting some time.

One of my favorite get-away spots. Love that city! Your pictures make me pine for it now.

I'm glad everyone liked my pics. ;-)

Aly- my camera at night was being very strange. I kept trying to take photos in the graveyards and it wouldn't take. Or it would turn itself off. Very strange!!

Southern Gal- well don't pine for it too badly. Live through my pics ;-) It really is a special city. A vibe is there unlike I have ever experienced before.

Now that looks like a place I could live. Even if there are no casinos and palm trees.

Lovely picts!
