East Battery Street, Charleston, South Carolina. June 22, 2008.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

The picture above was taken on the seawall of Charleston Harbor in Charleston, South Carolina.  It shows some of the beautiful homes on East Battery Street, many of which date back to the Civil War.  Fort Sumter, site of the first shots of the Civil War, is in the harbor off to the right.  Behind me and to the left is White Point Gardens, more commonly known as The Battery.

I lived in South Carolina for three years and have visited Charleston several times.  It’s a beautiful city and I thoroughly enjoy walking through the the historic district (as long as it’s not too hot!).

The picture above was taken in June, 2008, when Betsy and I visited Charleston on our anniversary trip.  If you would like to see some more scenes from the area around The Battery, click HERE.

    I’ve never been to Charleston, but the beautiful old homes and stately trees in your photo remind me of New Orleans, which I once lived.

    Wish we could have visited many other such gorgeous places while we lived in KY. Being students, however, didn’t allow for much vacation time and traveling expenses. There was so much more we would have loved to do and see! Oh well, now I get to see all your wonderful photos and enjoy the armchair travelogue! Thanks for sharing them with us!

    I have been in Charleston, but only for a day. I would have liked to spend more time there. It was beautiful.

    Charleston is such a beautiful place and this photo is nice because it isn’t filled with people and distractions. The homes are so interesting looking and I loved the iron gates. I hope we get to go back some day.
