One of my favorite things to do is drive down some unknown country road and see what's there. There are lots of those roads in this area, and I still have a lot that I haven't traveled yet.
On Wednesday I took one of those roads, and it led to Pendleton, S.C.
Pendleton is a quaint little historical town with a main town square and shops and restaurants and business offices all around the perimeter. Browsing through several antique shops was fun.
And then lunch at the Village Cafe, right next door to the Village Bakery, was delicious. Our group of three had three different items: Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, Soup and Vegetable Quiche, and a BLT. All the sandwiches were on bread baked at the Village Bakery. Very tasty!
Another antique store after lunch--this one housed in a former gas station building. And then the drive back home by another route, scenic Highway 11. We didn't get a chance to visit two historic homes in the area: Ashtabula and Woodburn. (Ashtabula was the setting for several scenes in Milltown Pride.) So there's reason to go back and visit Pendleton again.
