Charles Pinckney's backyard

I have to confess, I needed a mommy moment the other day. I had 20 minutes and sought to put myself in time-out. One thing I absolutely love about living in Charleston is that we are surrounded on all sides with history and beautiful backyards to wander in. I grabbed a coffee and my camera and took a breather and a stroll through Charles Pinckney's summery yard (this site is located in Mt. Pleasant off Long Point Rd. across from Boone Hall Plantation - see below for directions)...

This is what drew me in, and it got even better when I wandered down here...

I wasn't after history, just a quiet moment of peace, but you can't help but to soak in the details of this man and his property. Imagine this house and land before the town of Mt. Pleasant grew around it...

I recommend this site as a great place to picnic and wander with your family as well as a quiet retreat.
