Magnolia Plantation

On Sunday of our Charleston vacation, we journeyed out to Magnolia Plantation. It is an old rice plantation with gorgeous gardens and plenty to see. Here are some pictures from the day...

 Peacocks just walking around the plantation.. they make some terrifying sounds, like a dying cat baby.



 This is the plantation house that we toured

Sylvester. He was sitting outside the house, and I couldn't resist petting him.

 Me, Uncle James, Mallory

I realize we are hurting the bamboo...I'm sorry. There were literally thousands of names already carved here, so I figured we might as well.

"Come at me bro!"

It was a very nice day to be out and about. It was hot, but not sweltering like it has been lately. I love being outside, so this was a perfect thing to do for vacation. I feel like I should mention the ridiculous spiders that were around every corner. Banana spiders are these scary looking black and yellow things that apparently eat mosquitoes. I'm grateful, but seriously those things are flipping terrifying. I kept thinking they were on me whenever I saw one. Anyway, despite the big scary spiders everywhere, it was a gorgeous place to walk around.
