Charleston, Part 2

We walked many, many streets!  On one sidewalk, this man had set up his canvas and was painting the houses across the street (seen in the next photograph).  Oh, to be able to do this!
Old churches stood side by side with the beautiful houses.  Most of the churches included graveyards in various states of repair.  At the Baptist church, the stones lined the wall separating it from the neighbors.
This Unitarian cemetery was enormous!  The vegetation had been trimmed (somewhat) but overall there was a look of age.  I could have spent hours here.  It included the sundial and its engraved dedicatory words.

And everywhere--houses, flowers, and history!
The Calhoun Mansion replete with incredibly manicured yard/garden with fountains and this weather vane...
We walked MILES yesterday!  Side streets and main streets, sometimes the same streets--always seeing something new.  I'm so glad we did.  And I'm thankful for eyes to see and legs to carry me, for blue skies, strong breeze and sunshine.  For friendly folk, resources to enjoy a good salad at a comfortable restaurant, for a cellphone with a fine camera, and for a husband with whom to enjoy this experience...
Thank you, God, for EVERYTHING!
