Stepping Stones and Cobblestones


These are stepping stones from Charleston's historic district.  These stones were placed by the curb for ladies to gracefully disembark from their carriages.


You can almost hear the carriages on the cobble-stone streets.  Wait!  You can hear the horse-drawn carriages; there are many, many of them loaded with tourists led by knowledgeable guides.
We enjoyed a carriage tour, although it wasn't quite as elegant as some those lovely antebellum ladies rode in.



There were also several hitching posts still standing.  I have searched diligently through hundreds of pictures and can't find the hitching posts, so you are just going to have to trust me on that.


I love walking through old towns.  You never know what you will find next.
