Jewelry with the different designs of the gates are also very in. Here is one that my DH bought for me. It is a design of a gate somewhere in Charleston. The chain is a replica of pieces of rice.
Charleston was known for their rice in the late 1600's. They were a major supplier of rice to the colonies. The history of the gates and rice are below the picture. I scanned them and but the quality is not the best.
It is sweet, don't you think?
We went to the Naval Shipyard which is housing the Civil War submarine, The Hunley. The men loved seeing them work on the sub. They are still getting artifacts out of the hull.
Below is a replica of the coin Lt. Dixon had in his pocket that he carried for good luck.
It was a very small space that nine men had to sit and work in. There is many more items that were on display that we could not photograph.
It's a fun city to visit if you get the chance.
Have a great week. See ya soon.
I want to also thank Carlotte at http://athomeinscottsdale.blogspot.com for giving me these precious awards. You need to visit her wonderful blog. She actually has two now. Thank you Charlotte!
