Cigar Factory – Charleston, SC

Cigar Factory | Charleston, SC

This is the old Cigar Factory in Charleston, SC. Just look at the dark brick! It’s an impressive building that has stood the test of time! This stunning building was constructed in 1881 as a cotton manufacturing facility – it also survived the Earthquake of 1886 and in 1903 was leased to the American Cigar Company. At one point they made 1.5 million cigars each day!

A Different Perspective

Looking up towards the heavens

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with the advent of phones that carry the most phenomenal cameras ever! Who would have imagined? I am one who would lug a big camera around every vacation, trips downtown, and anywhere scenic. (Thank you, Fred, the real one that lugged the camera for me). Now, I simply grab my phone and create the most beautiful photographs. It makes us all amateur photographers. #icantstop #dontwantto

High Five to Roper St. Francis Healthcare!

Roper Vaccination Drive-Thru Site – Charleston, SC

“We’re Here For You, As Always” – was posted on a sign on one of the pillars in the parking garage where the COVID vaccines were being administered. I have to give Roper the highest of accolades when it comes to stepping up and getting people vaccinated (without even getting out of the car!), and doing so in a calm, extremely organized way. HIGH FIVE, Roper St. Francis Healthcare!

Chicken Coop In The “Hood”…

Happy Chickens – Charleston, SC

Cool chicken coop. Cool chickens. A beautiful chicken walked by and I didn’t get to my phone in time. So no photo… This was on a morning walk. I love running across the unexpected. In Charleston you can EXPECT to run across the unexpected, usually in the most unique way possible.

Camellias in Charleston, SC!

Camellia’s in Charleston, SC

Charleston, South Carolina. Always beautiful, always something blooming, even this time of year. Camellias are beautiful flowers and they are abundant here. Some people like to float them in a pretty glass bowl – I snapped this while out on a walk 😉 There was a tulip tree nearby budding, so hoping a frost doesn’t zap it before I can get some beautiful photos!

Oh! This view is a stunner every time we see it. Always changing but always spectacular. Bowens Island Restaurant is in a prime location in Charleston – the view from everywhere is breathtaking.
