Road trip to South Carolina

Hello Blogging Friends,
I hope you are having a good day and if  not I hope it gets better. Today I have some pics of a recent road trip to South Carolina .
I found this cool postcard image on Google search, it gives some insight to what you can find traveling around SC.Our final destination was Greenville,which is in the Smoky Mountain Foothills.




I love to take roadside pics, this giant peach was alerting us that we were in Peach Country.It was a little too early in the season for the harvest or we would have stopped.



 Next I have some Haywood Mall Pics , I just snapped anything I found interesting . I liked these kitty & doggie planters.





In Claire's, I thought these Cherry Headbands were cool.


I spotted this fun trackless train.I love trains ! The engineer was nice enough to wave .



Beautiful Pink Heel , beautiful to look at ,not to wear.


A very fancy Faux Cake .


A happy Spring Cookie.


Two beautiful blooms from a friend's yard.






More blooms from a Wal-Mart stop.



Images from one of our favorite restaurants,Cracker Barrel.











  We visited Greenville's famous, in the heart of downtown, Falls Park on the Reedy.  Across the street from the park ,was a small park, dedicated to Dr. Charles Townes, with a few park benches . His revelation about lasers came to him while He was thinking on a Park bench. The benches were to give others an opportunity to have a revelation too.






 I spotted this little Zebra Striped car as I crossed the street.


Park Entrance sign,( this pic was taken by my granddaughter).



 Falls Lake Falls Sculpture by Artist Bryan Hunt.
 


Fountain water is dyed blue.


Beautiful Falls on the Reedy River.






The Liberty Bridge


 

Another Falls View


Sign Entering North Carolina


I snapped this at NC Welcome Center, but I don't what it is ,I think it's a cool bush.


A wonderful roadside sign.

I will leave you with this Bible Verse :
"Let not your hearts be troubled , You trust in God ,Trust in me also." John 14: 1

Reminded me of this song by Third Day.



 Amen, I trust in Jesus!

  3. You are overwhelming when you are traveling round and about.
    Ordinary things become spectacular through your lens and the spectacular could fill a book.
    I love going with you. You sure aren't just traveling through, you are vacuuming places for interesting stuff of all-sorts.

  18. What a colourful post! It was fun to see what items caught your eye at the mall. I especially loved the Falls, and the idea of having a "thinking" bench with that great sculpture of Dr. Charles Townes.

  22. Looks like you guys had lots of fun and got some really great pictures!
    When I was in the grocery store last night a lady asked me, "Do you trust in Jesus?"
    "Yes ma'am I do!" I answered.

  27. Love the peach at Gaffney! :-) Looks like you had a wonderful trip. The photos were so great. You came across some very interesting things. I love the tribute to Dr. Townes. And that flower reminds me of wisteria, but is different too. Very beautiful!

  28. Oh I just loved reading this post! I am originally from South Carolina and it is still one of my favorite places on earth. I so enjoyed looking at all the photos and reading your descriptions of them.

    I'm a new follower of your blog and am looking forward to reading future posts. Please come by and visit my place when you get the chance....I'd love to have you. Oh and by the way, John 14:1, a favorite verse of mine but one I had not thought about in a while, was exactly what I needed today. Thank you for including it!
