More vacation photos – quilting stuff in the morning.
Our second stop in Charleston was at Drayton Hall – an old historic plantation – the twist in this big house is that what you see is what you get. No renovations – strictly about the architecture of the house – no furnishing, no new paint job.
This plantation is very near the one I showed yesterday. This is the house – we took a guided tour through the house.
Oh My!! more alligators! we saw about 4 more here at this pond – sometimes laying in the grass right next to the water, others in the water. That’s right real close to the house.
The porch leading into the house.
The privy 1791.
Windows for air circulation and a fireplace inside of this little house for winter time. And so many little “holes” to use. And are those handicapped accessible? What are the “arms” around two of them for if not to help you get up? Way before their time and look at that tiny one way to the right – just the right size for a 2 year old!!
Plaster carved ceiling – no one allowed on the floor above this room – they want to keep the ceiling as well preserved as possible.
Another of the alligator – zoom lens! Couldn’t get over seeing these creatures here just laying by the water ponds.
