Trip to Saluda
A week ago or so, I visited Saluda, NC, with my wife. Her family has had a place there for nearly 100 years so it's definitely like stepping back in time.
Our trip up saw two items of interest. First, the back road we used to get there from Easley, SC, had a lot of traffic coming down the mountain...bike traffic, that is.
Second, we saw a typewriter repair van! I knew I was in the country then. No broadband needed! I never expected to see anything like that. (Sorry I wasn't quick enough with the camera)
While there, we ate a tasty lunch at the Whistle Stop (see menu, though my chicken quesadilla's aren't on it) and admired the GIANT ice cream cones coming out of Fudge Mountain in the barn next door but didn't get any.
