Low Country October 2010
Charleston We returned to Charleston for a few days before a Backroads multi-sport trip from Charleston, SC to Savannah GA. The city is filled with churches—a product of very early toleration of most faiths and denominations and old, often restored, buildings.

The fountain in Waterfront Park is a favorite with kids. We explored the city for two days, took pictures and enjoyed the history of the city.

Though we didn't partake, carriage rides are very popular with visitors to Charleston. Not surprisingly, the carriage tours pass some of the city's historic cemeteries. Also not surprising, we found even more of the cemeteries, many of which are adjacent to churches. (the butterfly picture is Carol's)

Visits to the Low Country are increasingly about food as the region brings new twists to old standards. Although we think shrimp with grits was on every breakfast menu, we couldn't do that. But, we did enjoy many great meals.
