Battery Park

Battery Park. Charleston, South Carolina, USA.
This park hangs on the edge of historic downtown Charleston lined by houses hundreds of years old.  It fronts onto the Ashley and Cooper Rivers facing toward Fort Sumter in the middle of the harbor.  Speckled on the few acres are mortar and canon placements showcasing the strategic importance on this point.  Long growing live oaks are lined deep providing immense shade patches and wonderful atmosphere.  These birds, unknown to me, have nested in the tree tops here.  It is so nice of them to share the park.  I'll have to thank them next time I am there.
