But I did go to Charleston last week for a conference. I had only a couple of hours total to walk around, but there was a reception at the South Carolina Aquarium.
So here are some photos, mostly without commentary....
A better view of the gazebo at Battery Park
Another private residence
Historic home with some *serious* home defense!
And then we went to the aquarium for a reception. The pictures SO don't do it justice, but I took a few that are blog-worthy....
First, they had a few rescued birds.... a bald eagle
and a kestrel (I thought they were bigger than this!)
seahorse (look closely, he's down near the bottom of the orange coral on the left)
Alien (No, you cannot possibly convince me these actually occur in nature. ::shudder:: )
Eastern diamondback rattlesnake (Protip - avoid these if you meet one in the wild!)
Albino alligator (Protip 2: Also avoid these in the wild.)
I don't remember what this is, but it makes me smile.
Mmmmm - shrimp and grits!!!!
The conference was amazing, by the way, but I will spare you any photos of 1500 librarians listening to speakers and attending workshops. 8-)
