Oops. I "sent", then read the rest of the digest and found that a lot of us
are familiar with the
Huguenot church in Charleston. Before my aunt and uncle, and my grandmother
living with them,
died we visited Charleston fairly often. I love the city and think that it
is beautiful, but I'm not sure
it is the country's MOST beautiful.
Let's see----Asheville, NC? San Francisco? New Orleans around 40 or 50
years ago? Chicago?
Another "oops". Linda is going to holler at us.
