It’s been a while since I’ve posted. My last was weeks ago after our trip to the South Carolina Mountains and I have a few more photos to add. The first two are from a place that was so inspiring, so peaceful, so incredibly beautiful, the locals call it simply “Pretty Place”.
It’s an outdoor chapel built by a Greenville textile entrepreneur for a YMCA camp.
See the bird soaring above the valley slightly to the right of center?
I have enjoyed staying in Airbnb accommodations abroad and finally convinced The
Writer to give it a try. We stayed in what was listed as “an artist’s studio and tea room”, a small apartment in the lower level of a modern home in a quiet neighborhood.
The private entrance was surrounded by prize winning gardens and had a pretty view of the mountains.
There were two rooms. This with the next photo is the bedroom/living room/dining room.
The host is Japanese and an artist. The apartment was decorated with many pieces from her travels, including a dozen or more Japanese tea sets, and her own watercolors.
This was my favorite of her paintings.
The kitchen area was small but efficient, equipped with beautiful china dishes, some snacks, condiments, coffee.
The Writer was pleased and impressed and I’m pretty sure we will be staying in more Airbnb’s from now on!
