24|52 Many Miles (June 11-17, 2012)

This week I was on vacation with my Mom and we saw lots of gorgeous scenery. There is so much beauty in the mountains and the ocean in South Carolina.  We spent time in the Spartanburg area, then a lovely drive along SH 11, ventured briefly into North Carolina, then to Columbia, Charleston, Folly Beach and back to Spartanburg. We flew into and out of Spartanburg, rented a car and drove over 1200 miles and I took over 1000 photos.  The map below shows tiny pictures that note each place I took photos so you can clearly see how much of the state we traveled. (Note: This map is not interactive but there is one on flickr, see link below.)

Below are four photos from our trip.  Also, visit my flickr site, 2012 South Carolina Trip, to see a broader sampling of photos from the trip.  Thanks to my wonderful husband who bought me a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with the 18mm-250mm lens, I’m really lovin’ taking photos.

This is the swamp area at Cypress Gardens, which includes areas where the movies The Patriot and The Notebook were filmed.

On a totally different topic, today is Father’s Day and Keith went to visit his Dad but before he left he did a little prep work for dinner tonight.  This chick is sporting an interesting suit.
