Not the Usual Travel Photos
My husband and I just came back from Charleston, South Carolina, one of the most beautiful cities we’ve traveled to. We’ve been there several times. This time, I took a few unusual photos I thought would be of interest. Not the horse-drawn carriage rides or the Citadel or the Battery. Not Fort Sumter or the Piggly Wiggly, but things I found that tickled my fancy.
One day, while riding my bike along Patriot’s Point, I stopped abruptly when I saw a turtle starting to cross the road. Before he turned into turtle soup, I snapped a photo. Soon, a car screeched to a halt, a lady got out, and, scooping the turtle up in her bare hands, carried him across the street safely. What a city!
Another day, biking along a beautiful road in Mount Pleasant, I came across a gas station with prices I just had to snap. Coming from Connecticut as I do, I had to document what gasoline and cigarettes cost for those in Charleston.
Finally, I passed a truck advertising several services – painting, carpentry, power washing, etc. It struck me as particularly wonderful that the owner named his company after a Shakespearean play! If I had need of those services, I would hire him on his literary sophistication alone!
No misspelled signs in Charleston that I noticed but I thought the above were all worth documenting.
