~Charleston~

History is FuN!  This past week we savoured the charm, the history and definitely the food in Charleston, SC and the city's surrounding area.  It's always a special treat to visit another beautiful part of our vast country.  Driving past or walking under oak trees with the Spanish Moss gracefully hanging down was fascinating.

Middleton Place
At Fort Moultrie we learned that at one time our country's flag had fifteen stars and fifteen stripes.  That is definitely a "FuN Fact" that I will be adding to my list (below my header) in the future!

Fried Green Tomatoes taste wonderful!  When the local tomatoes are "in season" this summer I will be preparing this dish.  Gumbo = YUM!

This was a great trip to a beautiful area in the U.S.!
We did enjoy!
The food was so yummy!
