Hospitality



"The lintel low enough to keep out pomp and pride; The threshold high enough to turn deceit aside; The doorband strong enough from robbers to defend; This door will open at a touch welcome every friend"

-Henry Jackson van Dyke

Spent last Saturday in the most hospitable city...Charleston.  Every door welcoming and garden gates left ajar allowing curious peaks inside.

Meeting Street
Broad Street
Meeting & Tradd Streets

Lunchtime at Husk

Tea and snacks greeting guests at the Planters Inn

Then came across this...no, are YOU serious.  Not so hospitable
