Conway, South Carolina

So. Why did we go to Conway, you may ask yourself. Well, Diane did some searching and found out that the Horry County Museum is there and that Conway was one of the first settlements in South Carolina. Upon learning all of this, she made a decision that we should go see what it has. So, we did that.

After breakfast. We had eggs and fried spam which was pretty darn good.

The drive to Conway is not a tough one since it’s only about a 30 minute drive. It was a leisurely trip and we found the museum with no trouble.

The artifacts of the museum are displayed the renovated 1905 Burroughs School. It’s a magnificent brick building with lots of rooms full of amazing things relevant to the area.

This is the scariest hair curler I’ve ever seen.
This is for Lydia, just because.
Somebody’s pet.
I beautiful, HUGE brick home on the side streets of Conway.
They like their trees enough to move the roads, not the trees. Straight ahead, at the next intersection, a huge tree sits smack in the middle and the road was built around it like a traffic circle. Pretty slick. Should have taken a photo, huh?
This is a serious avocado. Never ever have we seen an avocado this big.

Regarding the avocado … I think it cost $1.78, or about that much. Maybe it was $1.78 a pound which would make it cost about $8.00. It’s pretty heavy. And, it tasted pretty good, too.

Upon our return from Conway Diane prepared a scrumptious dinner of bake chicken and cauliflower. I whacked up a bunch of carrots, tomatoes, and that avocado, and made a salad far larger than either of us could eat.

I actually only used half the avocado. It might be known as good fat, but there’s a point where you can have too much of a good thing. I believe this is one of those times.

Now we’re going to rest up for tomorrow. We’re going golfing.
