A Historic Surprise

If you missed my post earlier this past weekend, I shared that I was venturing to Charleston, SC for my first time. My best friend and I were off for a girl’s weekend, a much needed break. So, with camera in hand, she gave me a tour of the historical city. There will certainly be more photos shared in the coming weeks, but I had to share this pleasant surprise I came across.

As we were on our way out of town, we drove by this splendid vehicle in front of a building that did it justice for sure. I asked (or more like squeeled delightfully) for my friend to pull over. Being a lover of cars, this was quite the treat to come across. I hope you enjoy this fabulous, classic Rolls Royce as much as I did.

Brick Structures

WILMINGTON HISTORIC & ARCHAEOLOGICAL DISTRICT

“With elegant plantation homes, historic buildings, and numerous attractions, Wilmington’s historic district is one of the most beloved parts of the city. Bound by Wright, S. 7th and Harnett Sts., and the Northeast Cape Fear River, this largely commercial district has been growing since the early 1700s and features a variety of architectural styles as well as underwater archaeological sites.” (Source)

I am a huge fan of history, as well as brick structures. Wilmington, at one time, was home of the Masons and you can see much of their handiwork in the historical district’s architecture. This water front city has amazing sights to see, a stroll through the streets does not disappoint. If you visit you are bound to see a touring horse drawn trolly. There is also a tour from the water on a tug boat that is offered. Lots of great sights, free offerings, as well as shopping and food. You will find Wilmington is an easy hour and half drive north, from Myrtle Beach, SC.

A Taste Of History

A trip to the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington, NC proved to have many great historical things to see. From the deck and multiple floors below, to the Captain’s quarters and more, it remains a time capsule. Here you see a recreation of a soda shop which correlates with the era. This is where you can have a bite to eat while touring. In response to Tuesday Photo Challenge: Nostalgia

Cobblestone Streets

I love visiting old towns with lots of brick buildings and cobblestone streets. Here is a view from one of my recent day trips to Downtown, Wilmington, NC. It’s an old harbor city with lots of history to it. Many of the structures are made of brick. I will have more to share in the future from my little excursion. I couldn’t decide if I like this photo better in color or black and white. What do you think?
