True Southern Charm

On my recent trip to visit my sister, look what the welcome mat looked like. This avenue of oaks is the entrance to her neighborhood...TRUE SOUTHERN CHARM...don't ya think? She lives in the beautiful town of Bluffton, S.C. in the low country area. When Mr.CC and I left her home to travel up to Charleston, we made a stop in the wonderful little town of Beaufort, and today I will be sharing some pics of it with y'all. For all of you, that have never seen the southern states, I hope you enjoy seeing this southern beauty.
                                            Blessings,
                                               Linda

                                      Belfair Plantation
                                                             
                          Beautiful home overlooking the water
                                          in Beaufort.




                             The original kitchen located out back.




                            Beaufort has a great riverfront area.
                                   I really enjoyed it.

                We have a lot of spanish moss in my town, but
                     Beaufort has a ton, and I'm not kidding!




                  I love the porches, but would hate to try to
                           keep all those ferns watered.

                         But, if I was lucky enough to live here,
                         I would hire someone to do it for me.

                           Do you recognize this house?

                             We thought we did...WRONG!!!!!
                              It wasn't the BIG CHILL house...

                           This one is!!! The movie, The Big Chill,
                              was filmed here back in the 80's.
                                   Oh, I loved this movie,
                                       how about you?

Sorry, that we didn't get better pics, but
when the owner is out in their yard,
this is the best we could do.

OMG, I live in Beaufort about 5 minutes from the historic area, I just love it. It is filled with such small charm. Glad you had a great time.

I've been to Beaufort several years ago, and my children still talk about the carriage ride we took. It is so impressive. What a great time of the year you had to visit!

We didn't make it to South Carolina this year and I really missed it. One of my favorite vacations was when we went to Charleston and then went to the Boone Plantation. I love those avenue of oaks. Awesome pictures. I am sitting here looking out a gloomy cold and rain. These pics were just what I needed to lift my spirits. Thanks for sharing.
