Marshes, Ice Cream and Wrought Iron

Pausing for a photo on our marsh walk. The light and colors were so amazing at dusk.

The scenery and the people were equally photogenic, so it was hard to choose just one.

Charleston by far was one of the most architecturally beautiful places we visited while on our trip. Long ago, my Dad taught me the art of looking up and I have continued to do so ever since. I loved the wrought iron, the colors, the window boxes and the attention to detail....even the street signs imbedded in the street were worthy of a photo.

Although I have never been to New Orleans, many of the streets we walked through in the French Quarter were reminiscent of what I might see there.

Street lamps, shutters and lanterns were just all part of its charm.

To think that at one time, not too long ago, the sale of another human being took place here really send chills down your spine and shows how far we as Americans have come.

A Valentine photo in Beaufort, South Carolina.

The longest cable stay span bridge in America.

They live in a three story...... oh wait a two story house.

The trolley tour was a good way to explore Savannah's 270 years of history.

Wrought iron was a sign of wealth.

Vic's came highly recommended by a friend and also happens to be where the locals like to dine. We were able to have lunch with our friends we had met in Costa Rica last year, which was a real treat on our trip.

Leopold's was a must see as the famed lyricist Johnny Mercer lived a block away and got the inspiration for "Tutti Frutti".
