Ashley Hall walk


This gorgeous pink saucer magnolia flowered in the sun as we strolled past Ashley Hall. This is a beautiful 2.2 mile walk (begin your walk by parking along Rutledge Ave.) with a few interesting landmarks along the way...


As you walk up Rutledge Ave toward Calhoun St, you turn left on Vanderhorst. You will come upon these crazy conifers that look like something out of Dr. Seuss Whoville. Truth be told, there's nothing very remarkable about this walk, except that from a child's perspective there are lots of little special points of interest like this. These trees are in the front yard of a whimsical little house and the tops of the trees sway in the wind wildly like flags on a pole... my boys love them.

Turn right when you reach St Phillips and you will be in the heart of College of Charleston amidst the buzz of the students. Hustle along to Caviar and Bananas for a big selection of drinks and yummy, creative foods. I recommend any of their salads...


With kids, it's always an exciting incentive to have a refreshment to walk to! If you have time, this is a great pit stop and you will love the hustle and bustle of the college area.


Coming up next week, the Yorktown, SEWE and a special artist, the Gibbes, and my funny Valentines...
