The “Pink Palace” glowing in the early morning sun.
Legend has it that the owner of this house on East Battery Street picked this color scheme because it reminded him of healthy teeth and gums. Not surprisingly, he was a dentist. No longer a private home, you can stay there as it is now a B&B (The Palmer Home).
A view of the High Battery not usually seen.
Even the gateposts in Charleston burst into bloom! And check out the beautiful flowering camellia as well.
The sun rising behind the High Battery. An inspiring morning view.
The Charleston Library Society, founded in 1748, is the third oldest subscription library in the United States (after only the Library Company of Philadelphia (founded 1731 by Benjamin Franklin) and the Redwood Library and Athenaeum of Newport, Rhode Island (1747). It has been at its current location at 164 King Street since 1914.
Despite the rather wintry feel to this photo, it was taken while the temperature was about 65 degrees!
