We first visited Charleston, SC in 2003, shortly after we moved to the Carolinas from Texas. We immediately fell in love with it; who wouldn’t? The architecture, the gardens, the history and more is alluring. So alluring, the city calls us back to it on occasion.

After nearly two months of social distancing, we needed a break. Charleston was our first choice. Social distancing and caution was still the order of the day, but I didn’t mind wearing a mask as long as I could see the beauty of this charming town.
