Trip to Walterboro-Part II

After lunch we decided to visit a few more antiques stores. Along the way we noticed the lovely tilework at the entry of this empty old building.
I have been researching DSLR cameras lately hoping to get a new one soon. Hubby found these cameras in one of the antique stores and suggested I try one of these, after all, the price was right:).
Once we finished antiquing we stopped to photograph some of the glorious churches.
More of Walterboro's beautiful homes.
This lovely cottage is for sale. With a little bit of work she could be the gem she once was long ago.
This porch seemed so welcoming. Can you imagine sitting here with a glass of lemonade while enjoying the hazy days of summer?
This old general store now sits abandoned.
An old rusted bread sign hangs above the porch.
Doors that once welcomed shoppers are now a mere reminder that the days of business are no longer.
This old Texaco station is a few miles from the old store. It too represents bygone days. Kinda reminds me of the little town in the movie 'Fried Green Tomatoes.'
Enough of the photograghy, we're on the road again! Or should I say enough of STOPPING for photography-I can still roll down the window and snap a few pictures!
Hope you all enjoyed Walterboro. Thanks for coming along!

Lovely post Kim.
Did they have a little box brownie camera?

I love the little cottage for sale.
With a coat of paint could be restored to it's former glory.

Dear Kim,

I enjoyed Walterboro very much!!! The old churches, homes and stores are so very charming!!! I love the home that is for sale... it would be a gem with a little paint! That front porch does look very inviting, and I love the color the ceiling is painted. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos!

Love, Paula

How much was the cottage. What a fun project it would be to gussy it up!

What a lovely tour!!! Thank you.

It was so nice to "walk" with you through the beautiful low country this morning!

I appreciate you, dear friend. Your thoughts, prayers, and kind comments are invaluable.

Take care. And many blessings to you this Friday. May the Lord give you a wonderful weekend.

I love the blue paint under the porch! My Dad once told me Why people would paint the undersides blue...It fools the birds into thinking it's sky...so they don't build their nest on the porch!
Have a great weekend!hughugs

This is making me wish I took a real vacation this year. How charming it all is. Makes me wistful for a country cottage....
