South Carolina Vacation...

We vacationed in the Carolinas this summer, stopping first in North Carolina to visit our good friends the Riverons and then driving down to Charleston, South Carolina and Kiawah Island for the second half of our trip.

Many thanks to our friends Jon and Jayne Roddy for inviting us to join them, the Reids and Julie at a wonderful vacation home on beautiful Kiawah Island

Before heading to down to Charleston, we spent one day in Myrtle Beach at Marriot Resort and Spa at Grande Dunes..

 
 

Arriving at the vacation house on Kiawah Island, a quick trip to the beach and some early evening fishing...

 


We drove into Charleston for the day where we visited historic downtown and then ventured to the famous Magnolia Gardens rice plantation...

We stopped in the Old Slave Mart Museum for a fascinating and sad look back at Charleston's slave trade history.

The Magnolia Gardens plantation home...

Preserved Slave Dwellings which were still in use late inton the 20 century by free decesdents of original slaves who stayed with the planation to work as gardeners. The head gardner to this day is descended from a slave who was loyal to the original owning Drayton family.
