Charleston, SC (August 3, 2007)

We came into Charleston with a driving rain storm in progress.  We were only in the area for a day, but we had a chance to wander around some of the historic sections.

This is one of the interesting things about many of the old houses, The front door to the houses opens up, not to the inside of the house, but, to an outdoor porch.  Why?  I guess it is because they really don’t have a yard to enjoy in front.  If they want any privacy, they can go to their porch.


Many of the live oak lined streets in the south are gorgeous with moss growing in the trees.  It reminded me of the tunnel effect that the elm trees created where I (Rick) grew up, on National Avenue in Rockford, Ill.
