Third day of vacation May 24, 2010

For those of you who are smart , you may just know where we are headed today!

Our third day of vacation and now we are in Charleston , SC. Zephir and I (Minkey) love the fountains! The day started of sunny and very windy!
We love the pale colored homes and the cool fences and gingerbread type spindles. (Since we live at spindlecottage it is a sinch we would love this home above!).
I thought this fence was intriguing---
We decided to visit a few churches since Charleston is known for its many beautiful ones!
Going through the inner door
Pretty nice!
Then we thought--lets look at a bit of the College of Charleston (actually we were walking along and ran into it!) Here is a nice entry to it.




Then we saw this Episcopal church below that is being repaired. There are a lot of Episcopal churches in Charleston.






We thought we would check out another church; this time a Catholic one.

Love the inside of this one---quite awesome.


It is funny how dark it is on the outside and how light it is on the inside!!
Above is the Rutledge house where you can rent a room.

Love Charleston's little alleys.


We ate lunch at Magnolias on East Bay street.

We ended the meal with espresso and creme bruille (spelling/?)
Notice the cruise ship peaking out at the end of the street!

See more of the cruise ship at the end of this street! (no we are not on the cruise).

This pink dog made me happy---one may see this on a pink saturday post soon!
Don't you love the contrast of all the pink with the green umbrella? Doesn't this make you very happy????? We got caught in the rain without our umbrellas!! Nannykim got drenched and had to run barefoot through Charleston---fun however!!
We stopped a moment under the awning here to get out of the downpour.

I love Charleston! My sister used to live there. At first, I thought you were in Florida because there is a bridge like that in Jacksonville. If you get down St. Augustine way, come see us!!!

I'm having a drawing, Minky, and you might want to come enter. Your mom can enter, too. ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)
