I think January forgot it was January. Today must have been in the 60s. The same was true on Saturday. Last January, we went to Myrtle Beach for Martin Luther King Day. This time, we decided to stay close to home, but still explore. We are so often gone when a weekend opportunity presents itself that we haven’t made the time to see the local sweet spots! Such as Cowpens Battlefield with some friends (no picture because I forgot to take one) and Chimney Rock with my mom and Joe and their dogs! Check it out.
The main thing to be remembered and cherished is that it was so good to get some Vitamin D! I LOVED being outside. I needed it.
Cowpens is located about 20-30 minutes from our house; it is the site where the Patriot Army had their first success in the South. The British apparently realized that the Patriots were being supported by southern agriculture, and so they concentrated their efforts on cutting off the supply, which would have been detrimental to the Revolutionary War–for the Patriots that is. This weekend just so happens to be the anniversary of this battle. I took tons of pictures because I love learning the details. The following are the ones that I cared about this time!
The first cookbook I liked. The second one (directly above) I didn’t. They were in Asheville’s Urban Outfitters. Farmburgers was a fun eat. My sister and her husband like it so we checked it out: good food, little pricy, but fun games and atmosphere.
2015, so far so good!
Thank you January sun!
P.S. The whole reason I wanted to go to Chimney Rock was to see the stretch of the trail where Last of the Mohicans was filmed. Due to potential ice crushing our heads, we couldn’t. But man I wanted to! It was so pretty the first time I came here.
