Last time we talked, I just started this journey and found some remarkable things in South Carolina. Some of them you wouldn’t even think would be in the state. But this quest is not done until we find all 41 items. Today I will give you some of my favorite parts from this journey: finding someone who decided to join the Ultimate Outsider club, a loveable book character, the start of a long trail, a big beach chair, and the perfect location for a wedding.
The goal of my last blog series, Explore the 47, was to inspire someone to go see the beauty of South Carolina. I’m glad one of my colleagues decided to take on the challenge and make their own memories with their family. If you see her at the library, ask her what’s her favorite park.
This 500-mile trip takes you from waterfalls to the state house and ends at the beach is only one step away. Whether you start from the top or the bottom, just know it takes 30 days.
This beloved character literally takes what you say to a whole new meaning. From making cheesecake from cheddar cheese and removing spots on clothes with scissors, she does exactly what you tell her.
In 1934, South Carolina had its first poet laureate. Specializing in poetry about nature, this poet's work has been published in modern outdoor magazines like Outdoor Life & Field and Streams. He was buried beside his family members in the Lowcountry.
Need a great venue to host a wedding? Give this place a try. Built in the 1840’s, this house has been a staple in the Lowcountry for weddings, family gatherings, and retirement parties. If you hear some cannons firing, just know someone is celebrating with you.
Try and guess where I went in these photos.
At this point, I am in sole possession of 50th place with 161 points. After I collected 100 points, I got a cool backpack from South Carolina State Park Ultimate Outsider.
