Hot n Hotter!
We've been combining new Town visits with cemetery runs to grab some photo requests. Sis had her eye on Pageland, and it was voting day so first Mom and I had to stop and cast our ballot in the special election. We both voted for the Democratic candidate, Archie Parnell. I am a progressive but until we have an actual party with a fighting chance, this is as close as I can come. He lost...but we tried.
After voting we drove about 30 miles to Pageland, SC and we had lunch in the local greasy spoon!
I took these photos with the Amazon Fire 7. I hope to get better at using it, just for photos such as this that I want to post directly on Facebook for the extended and out of state family to see. The town is really small. It's 2 blocks in the 4 directions of a down town, here is the main intersection, right outside Lynn's Cafe.
Lynn's could def use some TLC.... it was the only place we saw to grab a bite to eat. I noticed the curtains where hung on rope...hmmm whatever works!
I liked most of these reproduction signs...but not all.
especially this one, I love Moon Pies not exactly healthy food tho...
The rest of the photos were taken with my camera...We really liked this little court yard pass through..
here is the town water tower...it had been raining earlier, we got a break in the rain just long enough...
to head over to the First Baptist Church....
to the cemetery to look for 20 headstones photo requests...some of the older graves had trees all around, and the cemetery was on both sides of the street.
the original bell...
Has a big crack as big as the Liberty Bell!
We are preparing for our trip west....lots to do the weather is HOT and muggy, but the west sounds even worse from what I read on others blogs, so don't know how much of a relief from the heat we will get! I imagine my next post will either be from the road or from our destination! All depends--till then stay cool and drop me a note to let me know how you're coping with the heat!
