Should I call a Charleston Realtor?

This past weekend, I went up to Anson County to visit my Aunt and the rest of my “up there” family. I had a great time, as I always do. This trip held the added adventure of going to Carowinds with my cousins, and if you didn’t see my facebook photo of the Intimidator, let me just tell you that it is HUGE and I rode it TWICE. With my eyes closed, yes, but the point is, I got on the darn thing. TWICE. Muhahahahaha.

But that adventure is not the one I will remember the longest, I think. There was a another, much smaller but very significant thing that happened there. Aunt worked on Saturday, and I was there at the house alone. I was out on the porch, writing in my journal that morning, and for the very first time in my life, I heard the sound a hummingbird makes when it hovers. I seriously never knew why they were called hummingbirds until this weekend. And that made me realize how very much I dislike living around people and the noise they make.

See, Aunt’s house sits at the end of a driveway that’s about a half a mile long and curves through the woods. My cousins driveway is even longer, and her house overlooks a lake. And I was thinking to myself how nice it would be to live in a place like that, and hear the sounds of nature every day, where the sound of a car is an exception and not the norm.

The thing is, I like the low country. I’m a flat lander. I like to visit the rolling hills and an occasion glimpse of mountain is nice, but I prefer to live where it’s flat. Which brings me to that Charleston realtor. See, Charleston is flat but I am sure there are areas near there that are secluded and quiet, the kinds of places where you can hear hummingbirds, and the kinds of houses that have big porches where you can sit and knit and drink coffee while you drink in all those wonderful natural sights and sounds.
