Irene Levine, among many other things, writes a wonderful blog, More Time to Travel: Advice on Travel After 50. Her recent post is a collaborative effort with several other travel bloggers, including me, on the topic of plantations. As you’ll see, “plantation” doesn’t necessarily mean the kind in Gone With the Wind. Still, while I’m on the topic, here is a link to my previous post about Charleston, which is the starting point for a journey down Ashley River Road south of the city. There you’ll find three fascinating plantations–Drayton Hall, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, and Middleton Place. And now is a great time to visit. More in my next post.
