COLORFUL OR JUST PLAIN CRAZY?
Okay, sometimes it pays to get off the beaten path. The Isle of Palms is 3 hours door-to-door from where I live in Charlotte; we zip down I-77 and I-26 and we’re there. My husband heads there as often as possible to soak up the relaxed Lowcountry vibe; we load up our three dogs and count the minutes until we reach our little piece of heaven on earth.
Sometimes, the traffic on I-26 stinks. For years, we’ve stayed on the Interstate and waited for the way to clear. And waited. But lately when that’s happened, we’ve gotten off the crowded highway and headed back to Charlotte via the Hurricane Route that parallels the Interstate.
Sometimes, it’s good, and maybe even educational to get off the beaten path. I’ll let these pictures taken in Bowman, South Carolina Speak for themselves. What’s the best thing that you’ve found when you’ve taken the backroads?
