The only time I regret my lack of camera skill is when I travel. At home cats, flowers and books are good subjects for small pictures and infinite blog posts.
Between blizzards we enjoyed a long weekend in Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia (a two hour flight from Boston and two hour drive from Charleston to Savannah).
You will have to search elsewhere for pictures that do these charming, historic, coastal cities justice. Cobblestone streets, 19th century houses, rivers, low country, sea islands, shrimp and grits, verandahs, pimento cheese, biscuits...
Charleston is more compact than I expected, with narrow streets, a marvelous variety of houses, many galleries, and French elements in the architecture and cuisine.
Both cities overflow with greenery. I can imagine how gorgeous they are blossoming in spring and summer. If you've read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil you're aware that Savannah is known for its tolerance of eccentrics.
I saw this sign on a door and thought
I really need one for my own famille excentrique.
