View from the piazza....

I didn't realize just how special this was!

As the sun lowered over the Cathedral further down Broad Street, I caught the moment from the 2nd floor piazza of the South Carolina Society Hall building.

I had joined a small group of guests at a buddy's retirement reception. We sipped wine and grazed a table laden with delicious treats.

Eventually we ambled out and settled comfortably on the front porch.

We were on Meeting Street, a few doors down from the famed Four Corners of Law: the US Post Office, County Courthouse, City Hall and St. Michael's.


Had not been inside before and was really impressed with the Great Hall. (*If it's not called GREAT, it should be.)

We had gathered in a smaller - but very nice - entry area for the huge ballroom.

The building is not open to the public but can be rented for various affairs.

As darkness fell, I heard that very, very few people are allowed out on the piazza.

Something about insurance and liability so I was pleased to be among a select few who have relaxed on this historic site.

Enjoy a great retirement Bill!

This is a beautiful building that adds to Charleston's storied history.

It was a treat to have a different view of the state flag instead of always looking up.
