Charleston and the Tea Plantation

We’ve visited Charleston once before but it was a quick overnight stop – this time we spent a few nights here; coincidentally staying at the Harbour View Inn directly opposite where we stayed on the first visit! This one is a nice hotel, very close to the water with a comfortable room and a good spread of afternoon snacks in the lobby with open view through the floors up to the glassed over roof – and from our room, view of the water, and fountain:

We took a few walks around Charleston, admiring the many huge homes along The Battery (we’d seen them years before too, but worth seeing again!)

Returning, we walked through town and admired the post office as well as other buildings:


Another day we drove out to the Charleston Tea Plantation, quite interesting …


A nice break, before all our travel for eclipse chasing!
