More buildings

We went into Charleston again. It's so close to where we live and very nice to walk through. We'll probably visit often. Also, Haagen-Dazs.

A lot of my pictures from this trip didn't turn out well. I think it is a mixture of using my phone's camera to take the photos and that I don't like to stop walking while taking pictures. I will eventually buy a new camera, but I can't say I'll not walk while photographing things.

The things I focused on for pictures during this visit were buildings (again), the water (I'll post those later in the week), and hidden gardens (I'll post that when I find some more!). Here are some of the buildings that I thought were lovely.

I really like how this building is a mix of brick and some sort of patching.

I found another church. The best angle was from the crosswalk, but cars were coming, so I had to take the picture while walking. That explains the crookedness of the photo. The view from the sidewalk had too many trees in the way and I didn't like how that photo came out.

While walking to the pier so we could see the ocean, we passed some pretty colored houses.
There are more around, which I will take pictures of in the future.

Walking back to our car (and once again getting lost) we passed these houses. They have a lovely view of the water.

After discovering which way we had to go to find the car, we passed the Heyward-Washington house. It wasn't open, so we couldn't go inside.

This plaque says that President Washington stayed there for a week. It also is restored to the time period inside, so it would be nice to go into one day.

And then I can find out why they have these steps in the middle of the sidewalk.
