Winding up in Charleston

I've been trying to relish in these past days here in Charleston, as there are so many fabulous aspects of the city. I've visited a few places I never managed to see before, like Kiawah Beach, Francis Marion State Park, Mepkin Abbey, and Charles Towne Landing.


Charles Towne Landing: one of the first British settlements in the New World (founded in the 1600s, a little while after the founding of Jamestown). I can't imagine how exalted the settlers must have been upon reaching such a paradise after so many days on the rough sea

Church ladies as singing entertainment for visitors at St. Matthews's Annual Fundraising Tea. I think they are just so sunny-looking, and I love how there's a wide age range among the singers

 Sanaz-joon and I having fun while selling pasta at the Farmers' Market; so bronzed! I worry that quick beach access may not be a feature of the next places we reside in

more to come...
