Sweetgrass, which is used to make the famous Charleston Sweetgrass baskets, turns a beautiful purple in the fall.
Happy Halloween! This holiday is seriously celebrated in Charleston. Flattered, many of the more ghoulish residents hang out in the open and bask in the attention. You can find these excited fellows on the balcony at the beautifully modified Pre-Revolutionary house at the northeast corner of the intersection of Tradd and Meeting Streets.
Does it get any more Charleston-y than this?
King Street is a great street to stroll on just about any time. But, once a month the entire street, from Queen to Calhoun, is shut to vehicular traffic and you can stroll right up the middle (and eat and shop and shop and eat). It happens every second Sunday of the month and is, coincidentally, called “Second Sunday.”
What an evening this was for fishing. This man had his line in the Ashley River from the sidewalk along Murray Boulevard, while there were 5 dolphin in the water chasing the same targets. Beautiful.
This beautiful illuminated scene can be found on Broad Street, between King and Meeting Streets.
