We were able to stay at a friend's house on James Island. It was only a 10 minute drive to the downtown historic district. I have over 300 pics from just this trip alone. I don't know how many I'll share but I will divide the posts up.
This huge round porch is unbelievable!
Do you notice the ceiling of the porch is painted blue? It is called haint blue. The word haint comes from the word haunt. The Gullah people would paint their porch ceilings this haint blue to ward off evil spirits. They believed that these "haints" could not pass over water. The blue, of course, symbolized the water. Now they just paint them blue because it's pretty. But there are so many shades. If you want haint blue, paint your ceiling a blue-green. A color that reminds you of water. Benjamin Moore's haint blue is Palladian Blue.
I have so much more I'll be sharing with you!
