Remember January and the bomb cyclone?
Check out Springtime. It’s magical. The temperatures are mild and mother nature is singing.
Walking has become our way of life since moving to the historic downtown area. We really got to know the neighborhood averaging 7 miles a day – four of those days include a two mile jaunt to yoga – all in preparation for our upcoming pilgrimage (stay tuned).
Our pace is slow because there is so much to see.
Come take a journey with us.
flower boxes are in abundance,
entries are dreamy,
and pink homes rule!
From tiny to traditional.
Meandering Live Oak trees tell a story
and horses add to the charm. However, they are quite controversial right now – animal cruelty activists think it’s time to end this tradition. You decide.
and the iconic Ravenel Bridge links Charleston to Mt. Pleasant and offers fabulous views from the 5 mile round trip walking path. Built in 2005 – it’s the 3rd longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.
However, it’s not all walking. We started the act of fishing on the Ashley River. It’s salt water – where the Ashley and Cooper Rivers meet to form the Charleston Harbor and flow into the Atlantic Ocean. We just walk across the street with gear in tow – it’s right out the door of our home. I say “act” because the fish have completely avoided our hook. It’s about the tide and bait.
