Charleston Christmas

Christmas was spent in one of our favorite places of all, Charleston, SC. This is a Charleston "joggle board". It was a fashionable passtime for courting couples. Many Charleston gardens had one. Note the direction of the rockers. It is a hoot to try to sit on one of these. It holds up to eight adults; and, it is impossible to be unhappy sitting on a joggle board.

No visit to Charleston is complete without taking in at least one graveyard. I thought it interesting that even in 1889 there was interest in "green things". The inscription reads: "Oh Lord keep my memory green."
