these are days - live from a walking tour of downtown Charleston,SC

"These are days you'll remember. Never before and never since, I promise will the whole world be as warm as this."
- from These Are Days, Natalie Merchant

73 degrees is a gorgeous temperature to roam the streets of downtown Charleston on a history walking tour. These are days... days to savor this warm sun and breezy air. We are right on the cusp of the most spectacular days in the Lowcountry. What better time to wander downtown and learn a bit more about this place we call home. Many thanks to Tina Farrell for organizing the tour and to Sid Shingler for packing in a fine walk and a ton of information. Some quick highlights: Did you know the hymn 'Amazing Grace' by John Newton was inspired by a sermon heard in the Circular Congregational Church? Wander to White Point Gardens on the Battery and read about the pirates and cannons there. More to come on the blog in the coming weeks - downtown is a great spot to investigate with kids if you're in town for Spring Break.

I've lived in Charleston for more than 16 years and every time I take a tour of anywhere local it deepens my connection to this heavenly home.
