Pictures of Charleston 

After a morning of cycling, we spent the afternoon walking around old Charleston and the Citadel. I did not have my camera with me, but the Blackberry took some decent shots, actually.

Me, with the big guns at the Battery...

Nude, god-like Confederates...

A house on King Street, no wider than a Miata is long...

What's the deal with the pirate flag?

In honor of and service to France, in a very unlikely place...

And, yes, I did indeed pop awake in the middle of the night. After so much flip-flopping blogging becomes the best option.

So there is actually more to life than the Northeast? Who would have thunk it? The South where kids still say yes sir and open doors for women. Home to the dreaded Religious Righters.

Don't forget to stop in to say high to the good Dr. Marshall Austin....cytopatholgist extraordinaire. - Crusader

One of America's finest cities. Some good eatin' there, too!

Wow, Charleston in August.

My wife is from the Low Country and we visited a few years ago in early October. I was poached by noon.

It is, withal, a lovely, lovely town.

I love the Dalmation lying at the ready in the first photo.

I went to Charleston a number of times back with the job I had when I lived in AR. The Cadet Store & Gift Shop at the Citadel were one of several customers in that area. I've even got my navy blue t-shirt like the cadets wear for PT.

Charleston is a great city. I visited Patriot's Point, touring the Yorktown (which my grandfather flew off of in WWII) and the other vessels that have been added since I was first there as a child in the mid-70s, on our way to Germany. Also, took the ferry out to Fort Sumter. Visited Fort Moultrie one morning before flying back home. And, I love that sweet tea is the default way for it to be served when you go out to a restaurant!

Have you been losing weight? Or does the blackberry cam have a slimming effect?

Ah! My beloved Alma Mater. I'll be visiting YOUR Alma Mater this fall when we come up there for part II of the home-and-home series.

BTW... that firehouse on Wentworth Street... the truck is modified by the manufacturer so that it will fit in that door. The Board of Architectural Review won't permit changing the door, so they had to make the truck fit.
