How many of you have ever visited Charleston? What are your favorite memories of this historic harbor in the Carolina low country?

My parents honeymooned in Charleston and returned many times during their marriage. As I grow older I find myself getting pulled more and more by the magnet of this amazing seaside city of scented breezes, southern grace and grand dining. I just returned from a long weekend in Charleston and, with the help of Nathan Clendenin, put together a photo essay of my trip.

I hope this multimedia presentation  will jog your own memories of Charleston.

Tomorrow, I will tell you about a marvelous new dish in the low country cuisine. If you like shrimp and grits you'll want to hear about this!
