Charleston revisited

We made a run back to Charleston, to meet RVing friends who were there for a couple weeks.   It's only 4.5 hours of driving .... but after 4 months of "settling in"  to our Florida campsite we found there was a lot to sort and pack!  The weather was mild, but overcast, but only one really wet day kept us inside!     We did visit Magnolia Plantation.

We were both surprised by how swampy the grounds were!  can't imagine living there in the heat of the summer! and the idea of struggling with the layers of clothing that was typical of era - Terrifying!
