Our cruise left from Charleston so after we got back, we spent a little time exploring the city.  I had been there last fall with my Mom and my girls.  However, Ryan had never been there.  It is beautiful!  The weather was absolutely gorgeous for us.  The southern architecture is stunning and so many of the houses have such amazing history.  I would love to spend a week there and go on a home tour and especially a garden tour… assuming these are offered.

I wanted to sneak in here and wander through this garden.  However, I enjoyed the view from outside the gate.
