Maps By Brittney Barton
Spending more time at home has me making more trips to the imaginary junk food truck than I'd like to admit. The added stress that this pandemic has brought on has me wondering if I am actually hungry or if I am stressed. Knowing how I feel before I reach for a sweet snack has given me more awareness of both my eating habits and my emotions. This allows for more self care and healthier choices overall.
This place is special to me because it’s charm and delicious food stole my heart. One of the first things I saw in Charleston was a happy family of dolphins swimming in the harbor, which is something I had never seen before. New experiences like the wildlife made me feel connected to this small city. As we looked over the menu at Fleet Landing I saw a heron outside who was also looking for its dinner. I wanted to make this map highlighting the food we had in Charleston because of the people behind the food who cared about what they cooked and the experience they provided. The restaurants and landmarks I illustrated are just some of the many great places Charleston has to offer.
