Saturday was full of adventure as well. To quickly recap - the men built a garden, planted the garden, built a door and lock for our outside storage room, built a bike rack in our other storage room, and picked up a work table from our Chiropractor and put it in the storage room. All the while, I made venison bagel burgers and sweet potato fries for lunch, followed by homemade ginger snaps for desert.
Afterwards, we decided to check out a town close by called Pacolet that Mr. Michael had read contained the most craftsmen style homes in the state (he's a contractor who specializes in historic homes). Well, someone obviously did not complete thorough research for their write-up on "must sees" in South Carolina. This town was the epitome of disappointment. White trash, need I say. We saw 2 out of the "supposed" 250 craftsmen style homes, a drug bust in the middle of town, and when we asked where the historic part of town was we were told the Dollar General was a block away. We got out of there pretty quickly. Luckily our trip was greatly redeemed when we stumbled upon a couple trails on the outskirts of Pacolet. We hiked for a bit then decided to try to find Glendale (another old mill town) that wasn't far away, hoping for more redemption. Glendale was b.e.a.utiful. There were many craftsmen style homes and a gorgeous dam. Next to the dam was an old fabric factory that had burned down in 2004 - built in the 1800s though. It was crazy to walk around and see. Unfortunately we didn't have much daylight in Glendale, so I hope to go back soon.
