We are on the road to Greenville in South Carolina where Orlando will have his 1000km service.
Thomson is a prosperous looking town.
Main Street - just like the movies.
Down the road we crossed a hydro dam and left Georgia.
Meet Rick Erwin, mine host at his downtown restaurant.
Lovely meal and wonderful service from Rita.
Our first real olive oil in 32 days.
Meal prices are very reasonable in the USA even with the added service top of 15% or so.
The centre of Greenville has a wonderful feeling. It has undergone renewal. The river banks have stone walls, waterfalls, a concert venue, Shakespeare theatre site.
Lots of people are out with their dogs, their families and are enjoying an evening stroll.
We had a lovely shat with Dianne and Steve who were sitting on a bench near the statue of Greenville-born scientist Dr CharlesTownes a Nobel laureate physicist who developed the concept of Lasers.
