This classic Charleston view can be found at the corner of South Battery and East Battery (it is not East Bay Street at this point).
This obelisk/sundial can be found in the southwest corner of White Point Garden. It commemorates one of the worst naval disasters in US history — the collision of the USS Hobson (a destroyer) with the much larger USS Wasp (an aircraft carrier) The Hobson was essential cut in two — killing 176 sailors. The Charleston connection is that the Hobson, was built in the North Charleston Naval Yard and had also been based in Charleston. The stones around the monument were brought in from the 38 home states of the men who died.
This house on Murray Boulevard always has a wonderful floral display.
This is all that remains of the “old” Charleston Museum in Cannon Park. Fortunately, the contents were moved to the museum’s new location before it was consumed by fire. As it did in the old museum, the skeleton of a 40’4″ right whale hangs in the entry. In 1880, the whale had the misfortune of entering Charleston harbor where it was pursued and ultimately captured and brought ashore.
A cool window box and reflection on Atlantic Street.
