Charleston, SC (Carolina Part 3)

We couldn't visit South Carolina without seeing the historic city of Charleston and the Atlantic Ocean. 
We'd like to thank Amos, who pulled our horse drawn carriage, for showing us the lay of the land. 
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be in one of our countries oldest cities, to admire the intricate details of the architecture, and to glimpse a bit of our American history.

After tromping around Chucktown, we headed over to Sullivan's Island to dip our feet in the Atlantic Ocean
Have I mentioned how much we L.O.V.E. our friends Spinner & Ginger yet? We do. They're adventurous and generous and "boom ya" funny and they are wild about God and his people and we're incredibly blessed to know them!

As I stood there in the warm Atlantic water I had to shout a hearty "Hola!" to my wonderful Portuguese relatives, who are just a short 2,800 miles east on the beautiful island of Flores, Azores (Did you hear me?)

  This photo was taken for my pals who got choked up when they heard that I would be in NicholasSparksville. I love my pals. I however may be the only woman alive who dislikes Nick's movies...especially The Notebook (don't hate me).

We couldn't leave Sully's Island without having a meal with Edgar Allen Poe. 

Michael and Spinner with  "Poestaches." 

Live in Peace,

There are so very many reasons why I love you. And I love you more knowing we share a dislike for all things Nicholas Sparks.

Know you've got a friend in me!

I'm actually relocating to Charleston from NJ for business, so I've been researching the location and things to do online, as well as browsing charleston sc homes for sale. What would you say your favorite thing about the area is? Also, are there any areas you would recommend looking for homes in, or avoiding?
