Life can turn on a dime – take the time now…

A Steamy but beautiful walk…

It was another steamy day in Charleston – but our late afternoon (evening) walk was still quite pretty. You can almost see the humidity in the air. This is an older street lined with large live oak trees and they’re stunning ALWAYS, but the bright pop of the crape myrtle blooms against the backdrop of oak trees certainly was beautiful! I love the light coming through the leaves. #wow I am oh so thankful for the way yesterday ended…

Raw Bar – Charleston, SC

We were at a downtown Charleston venue for our Godson’s wedding rehearsal – and as we were on our way to the car I snapped a few photos. It was a beautiful evening so there were good shots to be had. As it always is in Charleston, South Carolina.

Oak tree blowing in the wind…

Blowing in the wind #loop

These grand oak trees are everywhere in Charleston, South Carolina. They’re stunning, magnificent and oh, so striking! I’ve written about them many times. They have the Resurrection fern that grows on many of them. Look at the trunk above and see the crunchy brown looking fern attached to the tree, that’s a resurrection fern. If it rains it is stunning and bright green. Once the rain is gone and the tree gets dry it turns brown and crunchy again.

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!

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!

Wysteria Blooming – A Sure Sign of Spring!

Wysteria – Charleston, SC

Wysteria, plentiful here in Charleston, SC. The aroma that drifts through the air is enticing. If you’re walking down the street it will stop you in your tracks and make you search for where the heaven scent (pun intended) is coming from! Wysteria is a vine (that you need to keep in check). Spring is when it shines in all its glory!

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.

If 2020 Were An Image

If 2020 were an image, it would look a bit like this…

Yes, 2020 looks a bit like this. So much information about the presidential election, lack of leadership, who said what about whoever, the riots (and I’m not talking about the peaceful protests), the hate, the negative non-stop attack ads that make the “slip and fall and we’ll make you rich” commercials seem like Hallmark. I know my head isn’t the only one that is swimming in a sea of disinformation.

Bowens Island Memories!

View from Bowens Island Restaurant, Charleston, SC

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. It’s a little like being back in time and quite far from the hustle and bustle of everyday living – even though you aren’t far from it all.
