This week Charleston and South Carolina have been busy with the Republican Primary.  We love Charleston and enjoy our home in rural Charleston County.

Last weekend riding through town we snapped photos of places that held special memories for us.

This is Cannon Park on Rutledge Avenue, the former home of the old Charleston Museum from 1907 to 1980. The Charleston Museum , founded in 1773, is considered the oldest in the United States. After the museum relocated to it present location on Meeting Street, the old building burned down leaving the columns and steps.   Generations of native Charlestonians spent hours in the old museum during school trips with their classmates.  I recall the giant whale skeleton that hung from the ceiling near the entrance. As a child this  museum was huge and I feared getting lost down one of the halls and in one of the many rooms.
Cannon Park is an open "off leash" dog park. No fence.  Our girls will never get to play off leash here because they are still learning verbal commands and the importance of listening to mom.

Verbal commands? What are verbal commands?

Verbal commands are not in my vocabulary.

This is St. Philips Episcopal Church (founded in 1680) on Church Street where my darling Jim is a member. Long ago, Jim's parents were married here and Jim was Christened as an infant on Christmas Day. This church is very special to Jim and me.

The weather forecast for Charleston today is similar to a spring day.  Sunny with temperatures in the mid 70's.  We are out and about enjoying the day.  Hope you have a great Saturday!
