We flew home on Saturday afternoon and had just enough pre-airport time to drive around the three plantations just north of Charleston. They all had tours that could take all day, so we didn't see much of them, but the entrance and the roads leading to the plantations were so beautiful!

We visited Middleton Place which had this outdoor garden market. It sold items for you to make a picnic lunch on the grounds, but also garden pottery, jewelry, herbs, etc. I loved the feeling of it and that it sold Sweet Leaf Tea brewed in Austin!
There were waterways like this through Middleton Place.
Don't you just want to go for a walk through this place? It was a beautiful day for a stroll through the gardens and a picnic lunch on the lush grounds.
My dream is to live on a street where the trees from each side of the road meet and canopy the street. I may have to move to South Carolina where this canopy effect happens all over. Loved it!
We realized how marshy the area is when we looked out on this "field" and realized it was green stagnant water covered in pollens and grass.
If you ever visit the area, be sure to look up Middleton Place, Drayer Hall, Magnolia Gardens, and Boone Plantation. So much history and so many pretty things to see!

We arrived home after two uneventful flights and were surprised by sweet Abby who had stayed awake (is was 9:45!) with excitement! She lept into my arms and said, "I missed you so much. I had fun with Nana".
