Today was a day off school! I had originally planned on us going up to Cowpens National Battlefield. I looked up the hours and it was going to be closed today! Time to move on to another plan! I opened up the book South Carolina One Day At A Time and it was at Georgetown County. Sounded like a good plan. So off we went. The weather, I was pretty sure, said it was going to be a chilly start but into the 50s and sunny for the day. This was not how it turned out.
17A going north
Love the colors of those birds
It was 36 degrees. It was not getting warmer.
He got a ruler and a pencil anyway!
The place we chose was Inlet Crab House. The music playing inside was the same station we had playing in the car!
This glass was the parking lot. What a great option. There were some oyster shells near the edges too
Lon ate most of it.
I got cod. It was very good.
Lon in the giant Adirondack chair! This one is painted in Game Cock colors!
These were in front of the gift shop. We did look and realized we did not get postcards at Brookgreen! So we got some from Huntington!! Lon will work on those after school tomorrow
There was an additional charge ($2.00 each) to go into Atalaya. But we wanted to see it
They told us that Mrs. Huntington used real bears she got from the Bronx zoo as her models for the bear sculptures she did. She let them roam around her studio space as she worked. Not sure I would do that. Lon said he would not do that in a million years.
It really is as cold as it looks
Lon thinks it is cool that he knows what these are all about. They help regulate the water in the rice fields
It is from the Norwegian ship, Leif Ericson. I think they said it was a steamer.
The museum was free but donations accepted.
It was small but seems to be growing. It had some great wooden ship models.
Three large buildings are gone. The fire happened since we moved here, so it was not that long ago!
The Gullah museum was closed, as was the Georgetown County museum. The Kaminski house had also closed for the day.
We went in search of a pastry. There was nothing that looked good to Lon or was open.
We found the Kudzu bakery! WOW. Lon was able to get a slice of chocolate cake. Really good cake, I got a cheese danish. I wish I had gotten three! It was very good!
so I did.
Lon and I had lots of fun. We found two places we want to explore on another day trip, The Hobcaw Barony. It is a nature interpretive center and that is all I know about it so far. It has a very cool sounding name.
There is also a plantation house called Hopsewee that sounds like fun. They are closed on Mondays.
Planning our summer trips!
