Washington Square

One of the places we hadn’t planned on stopping by when we were in Charleston, but ended up walking through and enjoying, was Washington Square.


Of course, there is a monument to the first president of our country:


There are also many other memorials. Charleston can be a weird place, because there are so many memorials to the Confederacy, which is hardly the proudest moment in American history, but I guess they do make up part of the city’s history, so we observed and learned from them, even if we didn’t agree with what they stood for.

It was just outside this park that we stopped at on of the many Italian Ice carts that you can find around Charleston, and enjoyed a cold treat. I highly recommend at least sampling some if you ever find yourself in that city (and they will happily give you a free sample, because that’s how they hook you!)…the mango was excellent!
