We started the day downtown looking for Rainbow Row. We'd heard about it and actually walked passed it yesterday without realizing it. Rainbow Row is the name for a series of 13 colorful historic houses on East Bay Street. According to some tales, the houses were painted in the various colors such that drunken sailors coming in from port could remember which houses there were to bunk in.
There are many shrimp boats in Shem Creek - just outside Charleston. We found a large number of plein air painters there getting ready for an exhibit which opens on Friday - too bad we'll be gone by then. It was really interesting seeing the different perspectives these artists had for the same scene.
