............and who did the ship bring in?
Yes, that's our lovely friend Susan Branch!
Susan takes her time visiting with each and every one who came to see her, and signing our treasured books. She is as sweet, down to earth, and real as you can get--nothing fake about Susan.
|Susan and Joe are on their journey to Ireland and back to the English countryside and have a short lay-over here in Charleston.|

|Isn't she lovely?|
Welcome to Charleston, Susan and Joe---may you thoroughly enjoy your time here and get a taste of our delicious Southern foods, a good long walk about our lovely and historic streets, (careful on the cobblestones!) a glass or two of our sweeeeeet sweet tea with ice and lemon!, and pleasant greetings from our friendly people. I hope you see our strong carriage horses, our breezy piazzas and our beautiful window boxes full of spring blooms! May you meander one of our ancient church-yards and think about the people that were here so long long ago and may you wander among those of us who are here today as we run our errands, work our jobs, bicycle about, and walk our loyal dogs. May you hear our loud church bells pealing out as they have for hundreds of years now and feel the whisper of our history as it wraps around you.
Thank you, Susan. Your books are beloved by so many and inspire so many of us "fairy tale girls" and it was a joy to meet you today! Safe journeys, Y'all!
