After the swamp tour, we enjoyed a tour of the house.
How would you like to have a front porch like this?
or a bridge like this across the pond out back?
After we toured the house we went for a walk through the gardens and these are a few pictures of the beautiful flowers we saw.
After the plantation, we ejoyed lunch at Ruby Tuesday's and then went downtown and walked through the outdoor market area. Ellie and I both purchased a Sweetgrass Basket. The baskets are handmade from native grasses. It is one of the oldest African crafts in America. It appeared in South Carolina in the late 17th century. You can find them displayed in the markets and along Highway 17 just north of Mount Pleasant.
Tomorrow we are taking a Harbor Cruise and a carriage ride through old town Charleston.
