Planning trips & vacations as an “adult” has taught me that it takes a little extra effort to make something stupendous. If you wanna be a better than average human you’ve gotta work a little harder than those around you.
appreciation for all the magnificent buildings that went up in the early 1800’s without any modern equipment & are still standing in all their glory down south. Also admiring my beautiful mom who puts up with all my bullshit, another true work of art.
my Charleston top 5- 1. the plants. there are plants everywhere in Charleston! the windows, ceilings, storm drains, basements, sinks! 2. the character & architecture in every single one of those beautiful buildings. 3. food. food. food. 4. puppies everywhere, in all shapes, sizes, coats & combos, ya wouldn’t believe. 5. everything else I missed.
I’ve been to Charleston a total of 3 times & this was the first time I’ve seen the pineapple fountain at the waterfront. I thrifted an old painting a year are so ago of this fountain, after my first trip to Charleston, despite never seeing until now.
