Day 74 – First Day in Charleston

March 15, 2009

Day 1 in Charleston:

We went to the First Baptist Church in the historic district in Charleston. It is the oldest Baptist church in the south and the fourth in the nation. It is where the Southern Baptist Convention was organized. They let David Wagner play the pipe organ after the services! The photo above is the church. Click on the photo to view it large. Taken with my wide angle lens.

We then walked around the historic district, ate at a wonderful microbrewery, and took lots of photos. After we spent the entire day there, we came back to the hotel and I walked on the beach for about two hours. We are going back into downtown Charleston tonight for some evening exploration.

I posted a gallery of my photos from Day 1. There are 116 that I posted. Check them out!
