Ninety Six National Historic Site

  "Walk Where Battles Were Fought and Heroes Were Forged ... Settlers struggled against the harsh backcountry to survive. Cherokee Indians hunted and fought to keep their land. Two towns and a trading post were formed then abandoned to the elements. And two Revolutionary War battles claimed over 100 lives. ..." My hubby is a bit Cherokee, so I am always say you need to find your people and learn of your history, does the man listen? Nope. I guess I will have to learn it myself ...I find family history so fun and entertaining. This is a walking path event, it was so warm the day we were there to check it all out. Really this is the only historical building I saw, you are mainly walking around a path with no other buildings, just sort of scene where it was shown I will save you from the mosquito bites and heat stroke. We did visit in Sept 2021. We would walk to shade and then zoom on around the walking path. Saw only one family when we were leaving. Thank you for stopping

Prices Mill

  Have I told you that all of these pictures are taken with my hubby's cell phone??????!?!?! I find that wild, shocking!! I never take my camera any more on trips, just a waste of space, well a camera is not that big, but you know the point, just his Android cell phone ... wild, huh??! What will happen next with technology??! Who knows???! Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ; 

Tybee Lighthouse, Georgia

  "1736. tower stands 145 feet tall. 1812 Summer Kitchen.  Georgia's oldest and tallest lighthouse." Such a pretty bike ride around the island near the campground we were staying in ..."Rivers End Campground & RV Park". I truly wonder how folks live on an island? So close to water??! It can rise so quickly, I would be a nervous wreck ...but it sure is gorgeous is pretty weather.  The 3rd picture, taken during a campfire in the evening light, you see there, my hubby and I thought it was interesting these plants growing on the trees, when it started raining they would get so green, by the time we were leaving, they were back to brown once again. Great relationship there, pretty cool, right??! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ; 

Glencairn Gardens

  Glencairn Gardens, 725 Crest Street, Rock Hill, South Carolina These gardens were so well taken care of ...just breathtaking to see. Even in the rain. It was fun to see. I am curious, who does supply the $$$ to keep it going? The taxpayers, the locals, I does have me curious??! Looks like it takes a lot of time and effort to be so gorgeous. It was a perfect spot to stop, stretch our legs, use their restrooms (which were so clean and appreciated). Please stop by to check these gardens out, so amazing!!! Loved it!!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take care. Beth ( ; 

Dorn Mill, South Carolina

Dorn Mill, SC 200 N Main Street McCormick, SC "Cyrus McCormick influenced the location of the railroad and in 1881 donated 40 acres of land for a town. By 1883, the town had a population of 200 people, and cotton gins and shipping were the major economic activities." Just a hop and a skip away from you car, fun to walk around a smaller town and see the sights. Watch out for the "fire ant hills", they are every where. Love all the history. Do you have a favorite time of history, something that really speaks to you? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;
