Ted and I visited Drayton Hall, one of the historic plantations on the Ashley River for the first time today.
Due to a confluence of circumstances of our timing, a day where the heat index was going over 90 F (32 C) so they were limiting traffic in the house, and busloads of other visitors we did not go inside.
From the front, or at least the more opulent, entrance. I found it odd that there were no gardens or plantings immediately around the house.
We’ll go back after it cools off a bit here, and the tourist traffic slows.
