Twin Lakes Campground, Pendleton, SC – September 30, 2012

Dave was so excited to arrive here….finally, somewhere other than a beach destination! Twin Lakes Campground is a great park, very peaceful with lots of trees and a lake view from our site. We had a little taste of cooler weather here and it was nice!

We got the campsite set up, took a short walk, then headed out towards Clemson just to see what was around. We drove past the university and went downtown. It’s not a big college town, but seemed nice. We ate dinner at Brioso Fresh Pasta, walked around town a bit then back home to chill.

It poured while we were here but thankfully only at night while sleeping. For the most part, the sound of the rain on the RV roof was nice, but every once in a while, these huge acorns would drop on the roof and it would sound like golf balls hitting it!

It was overcast and misting rain the next day but it didn’t stop us from getting out and exploring. We spent quite a while at the South Carolina Botanical Gardens in Clemson. We actually loved the weather because it made it really feel like fall or winter. We checked out the gift shop which also is a bit of a museum and has a small art gallery in it.

The next day we needed to be packed up and on the road by 2:00. We headed out to Greenville, SC even though it was a 45 minute drive. I’m so glad we did! What a great town! There is a historic section but even the part that isn’t considered ‘historic’ kind of is. There are beautiful old buildings, lovely plants and flowers everywhere, tons of shops and cafes and an amazing park called Falls Park on the Reedy. I could not stop taking photos, this place is so beautiful! We would have loved to stayed longer (we will be back) but needed to go check out at Twin Lakes Campground and head onward to NC.

I will be posting more photos on FB in a couple days. Onward to River Bend RV Park in Lake Toxaway, NC!
Misi and Dave
