Caerlaverock Castle, Scotland

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Caerlaverock Castle is unusual – a triangular-shaped edifice, it stands out amongst all other medieval castles. Located near the Solway Firth, the castle is really interesting to visit. There is the “new” castle and the place where the “old” castle stood. The castle was built by the Maxwell family and stood very close to England.

Cold Mountain and Charleston, South Carolina

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Charleston, South Carolina is a vacationer’s paradise. From the genteel southern plantations to the historic market section, Charleston has something to offer everyone. It’s also close to several beaches. I have been to Charleston several times and have found something new and exciting each time. One of my favorite places to visit is Poogan’s Porch, a restaurant downtown. Simply walking downtown is fun in itself.
