St. Michael’s Alley

Charleston South Carolina

Here’s a few more from my walk through the waterfront, French Quarter and historic area of Charleston.  Founded in 1670 and often referred to the “Holy City” because of the many churches in the city.

The corner of Church and St. Michaels

The alley is narrow and, the blend of colors in the landscape and on the homes is warming

  1. Talk about on a grand scale, Alice! 🙂 🙂 But those poplars would have to go- they block out so much light! Thanks for sharing. I’d love to visit Charleston and Savannah.
