Today our legs are pretty tired and we are starting to feel like we have seen most of what there is to see in the historical district. Renting a car could have been a solution, but instead we wanted to relax in cafés, do some shopping, and simply enjoy the city.
The highlight of the day was the Unitarian Church’s cemetery. What makes it so special? Well, the place is seriously overgrown. The church purposefully allows the garden to grow wild over the historic graves, in a sort of “dust to dust” symbolism I imagine. The result is a cozy, intimate setting that makes one feel as though they’ve discovered a secret garden.
For dinner we headed to The Ordinary, which was not ordinary, and stuffed our faces with oysters. A pretty good ending for our last night in Charleston.
