Elegant houses in Charleston

Charleston in South Carolina is filled with beautiful old buildings along tree lined streets. We docked right next to the old town and it was lovely to see dolphins frolicking all around the ship.
We went on guided tours of two of the best preserved houses. One special feature was the balconies that are built along the whole side of most of the houses.
This is so that the residents could sit out in the shade and enjoy the cooling effect of the sea breezes.
Unfortunately, for us it was freezing, and I made the major mistake of putting my coat and scarf in the locker at the start of the tour.
After the tour we needed to warm up quickly so dashed to King Street Cookies for a huge cup of coffee and a fantastic salted caramel cookie.
Thanks for the recommendation Susan, great choice.
