Visiting Charleston, SC

One of our favorite places to visit in Charleston is the City Market in the historic district.
GJ and AJ are shopping for pocket knives from one of the vendors.
A horse-drawn carriage tour is a must if you visit Charleston.
The decorative wrought iron is outstanding.
Another interesting feature you see in the buildings of Charleston is the round "earthquake bolts."
This is an old sign for a hat maker in the historic district.  If you double click on the photo, you can see all the different hats used in the drawing. 
On to dinner at Poogan's Porch Restaurant famous for their low country cuisine. 
I ordered the Pimiento Cheese Fritters on Green Tomato Jam appetizer
AJ ordered the Fried Alligator with Honey-jalapeno dressing appetizer
My entree is a fried chicken breast stuffed with country ham and collard green, served with mashed potatoes and green beans.  Oh my goodness! It was yummy.

The boys wrapped up the evening with a 1.5 hour Ghosts in the Graveyards walking tour. 
I opted out of that tour and tried to keep cool in our room at the Mills House Hotel.
