Charleston: Cycling to the Sun

One of the many great things about Charleston is that it is a community that bikes.  Everywhere you look, you see folks riding bicycles.  Unfortunately most are riding without helmets, but that story is for another time.   I loved this dedicated “bike parking lot”.

A bookstore right in front of the bike parking lot uses cool combination advertising.

One of the purposes of the trip was to bring my son a bicycle so he’d be able to join the other cyclists in commuting and in play.

One evening, Andrew and I rode through Hampton Park and from there, found a curvy little pathway that led to the Ashley River.

It was the perfect place to watch the sun set over the river.

Such peace and tranquility … I was almost ready to move there!

    • It was a lovely evening, and I’m glad it went so well with your coffee (don’t you just love a quiet cup in the morning?)

    • Andrew is indeed fortunate … I know there are some downsides to living in a southern tourist destination (people / heat / cost) but the positives far outweigh any negatives. He is loving it!

  1. My sister used to live outside of Charleston, in a town called Summerville. When I’d visit her we’d go into Charleston. It is beautiful there!! I went with my son, but he was just a little guy then. He’s 24 now, and by gosh, it DOES go by fast. Love the photos!

      • Yes we do, Fitty has so many beautiful shots of the lake, the sun setting on it, moonlight shining on it etc. Even I can take a good shot of our lake, it’s just so beautiful here!

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
