The Charleston Trip, Part 2: Wandering the Grounds
In Part 1 of my story, I got to Charleston safe and sound, but an hour later than scheduled. This delay meant that the rest of the wedding party had departed for my friend’s property. I was left alone at The Inn at Middleton Place.
My first take was to check into my room. They needed to give me a new room since my first one was still being cleaned. Otherwise, check-in went smoothly. Soon, I was settled into my room.
My friend, his fiance, and everyone else weren’t going to back for a few hours, so I decided to wander the property. I quickly found out that Middleton Place is a photographer’s dream. From the spanish moss, to the wildlife, to the thousand year old Oak trees, to the Ashley river, to… well, you get the point. By the end of my self-tour, I had learned quite a bit about the history behind Middleton Place and had walked quite a few miles (or at least it felt like that). Here are some (ok, MANY) photos from my walk-about:
Coming up next, we get creepy with a ghost walk and an unexpected visitor!
