An Overnight Stop in Charleston, SC

 Charleston is one of our favorite southern cities to visit.
We all enjoy shopping at the Market where you can find all sorts of unique items.
KJ, AJ, and GJ took one of the nightly Ghost Tours.
We stayed at the Mills House Hotel within easy walking distance of the Market
and many great restaurants.  We had a delicious dinner at the nearby Eli's Table. 
Breakfast in the hotel courtyard.
The springtime weather was perfect!
A stop along the Battery is a must for our family.
The homes in this area are fabulous!
I have visited Charleston many times as my Aunt B and Uncle C
lived in nearby Mt. Pleasant for years.
This trip with the family brought back many happy memories.

I love Charleston too, although I haven't had the privilege of visiting as often as you. It looks like the weather was perfect while you were there - clear skies and manageable temperatures. Great spring break even if you did have to cut it short a bit.

Too bad I didn't know! I live not far from Charleston...was actually in Mt. Pleasant last Saturday!

Love seeing all your wonderful TEA Travels..

If you ever go to Lancaster CA. Visit Beladonna's. I have not been there but my sister sends me her Yummy tea blends..and it is very quaint. One I know you would enjoy.

Glad the weather was perfect for your journey!

God bless
HOPE

If there were only a "real" Indigo Tea Room you and Theodosia and Drayton and Haley would have really hit it off! Laura Child's often speaks of the Battery too!

Charleston is such a lovely place to go. I love it and Savannah too. Beautiful coastal historic cities!

What a nice trip. Oh I love ghost walks, I would have been right with them.

I love Charleston too! I enjoy the Battery, like you, and I am drawn in by the women at the market making sweetgrass baskets. (You'll be shocked to hear I got a sweetgrass cup and saucer!)
