Spontaneous planned trips are the best and a perk to being an Empty Nester

The excitement of visiting Charleston, SC  and escaping the colder temperatures and rainy forecast was just what I needed to keep me hopeful that spring is almost here. Taking a spontaneous and last minute planned trip was just what I imagined empty-nesting to be about. I packed an overnight bag and traveled with my hubby to this magical city at a moments notice. I can so get use to this type of living and adventure!

I took  this image from the streets of Charleston but don’t think for a minute that I didn’t have my husband touring this way the very next day!
The colorful and historic homes are candy to my eyes. The shadows of the trees add a little extra on this early morning stroll.
The historic homes were painted in mostly pastels on this particular street. Each one distinctive and full of character.
Window-boxes decorated the facades adding even more color, charm, and character to the streets.
This window box is full of happiness and brings a smile to my face.
A friend recommended the crepes at “Queen Street Grocery.” The brie, ham and raspberry crepe was worth the trip alone! If you are visiting Charleston, don’t miss this spot for a cup of coffee, snack or meal.
I plan to return and visit more of the Churches of Charleston. This church was one of my favorites.
The coast was especially beautiful in the early morning just after sunrise.
