Tales from the Road: Columbia, South Carolina ~ Day Two

Well, I'm pleased to report that yesterday was much better than the day before! After breakfast, we moved the RV to the new site, perfect! We set up house...

and then headed into town for some adventure. First, lunch at Lamb's Bread Vegan Cafe where I enjoyed Southern Barbeque, vegan style!

and Chip gobbled up his "BLT" which he claimed was one of the best he'd ever eaten!

The restaurant was decorated so beautifully, we enjoyed every minute of the experience, Chip especially..

After lunch we stopped by the historic district and took a tour of the Robert Mills House & Garden. Our guide, Robert, was a charming elderly gentlemen who was so knowledgeable about the house as well as the area. No pics were allowed inside but here's Chip making a grand entrance. What a lovely home and such a shame that the family who had it built never had the chance to live there.

The garden was decked out for Halloween, including an adorable scarecrow exhibit.

Back at the campground, we had a couple of drinks by the fire..

Dinner was a big bowl of veggie soup while watching Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All on DVD, thought it was appropriate considering our location, right?

This morning we'll pack up and make our way to Cherokee, North Carolina. I can't wait to get up into those mountains!

Have a wonderful day,

Michele

  1. Your vegan bbq looks delicious. So did you figure out hot to make it?
