Location: Lexington, SC (High 61, Low 34)
This is the view up the road from the campground exit, and we never would have guessed that there was actually a lot going on down there – an apartment complex, an elementary school.
The side walk was really level and the traffic was much lighter than on the main road in the other direction. It made for a very pleasant walk.
And as we were walking, we went by this sign. We thought it sounded quite interesting…especially the “true southern fixings” part. So yesterday we returned to try it out for lunch. What a find!
It turned out to be a buffet of homestyle cooking….fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, mac n cheese, biscuits, potato salad, cabbage, fried corn nuggets, and other veggies that we didn’t sample…oh, and fresh peach cobbler for dessert. Yum. What a delicious meal!!
After that lunch, it was time for a long walk!! In total, we walked about 6 miles yesterday. I am loving the fact that we can get outside each day and get some exercise. Today, we are supposed to get some rain this afternoon, so our walking may be curtailed a bit. But in general, we’ve been so much more active since we got down here to the nicer weather. I’m looking forward to seeing my numbers when I have my next physical!!
We’ve almost been here a week now, and it’s been a great relaxing time.
