I'm torn with this phrase, because I do enjoy traveling, but I've come to find I do it less and less as I get older. And when I do, it is to some familiar place, like our beloved Isle of Palms or the mountains. The same beach, the same mountains, but not even as often as I might have done just two years ago. So I do believe there is some truth in the idea that being happy where you are makes you less inclined to roam, though I still do occasionally get the urge to wander...
...just maybe not as far and wide as I once did.
|Sometimes no farther than my own patio...|
|Inspired Community...yes it is!!|
Of course, getting there was half the fun! Traveling country roads, remembering why I love my GPS so much...
|Old cabins are such a common sight here in rural SC...|
|I want one!|
|Still my heart...I want one of these, too!|
|And I'll take a few of these as well!|
|This reminds me of the house I grew up in, with parents who appreciated the worn and well-loved item!|
|Something for everyone, even those whose taste run to the more 'eclectic'!|
|This came home with us!|
|Fine dining, country style!|
|Lunch on a haybale!|
And so many other beautiful things to see!
|Community art installation!|
|Mums and the bread, our souvenirs!|
|It was a pretty warm day, but cool in the shade!|
|What is a more Southern roadside sight than this?...|
|...The Boiled P-nut man, that's what!!!|
We ended up at Yo Cup Coffee House in Clinton!
|Right on East Main!|
I love trying out new coffee houses, and this one has hit the nail on the marketing head offering frozen yogurt as well as java! Something for everyone! It was a great spot for some much needed coffee for me and a sweet treat for the boy! Then we headed towards Laurens and discovered Little River Park!
A fun-filled day, and all less than an hour's drive from home! Please visit links to the sites through this blog to find out more information and/or to follow them on Facebook! I leave you with this South Carolina image and saying...
|Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina!|
( If you pronounce 'finer' the way we do, I promise the phrase will rhyme!)
And now, it's time for me to get ready and head over to the Big House (my family home) for the celebration of my birthday! Can't wait! Happy Sunday, dear readers! May you have a blessed week!
