Backroads wandering....... Atlanta to the ocean

Can't go very long between beach fixes!........it's so fun to wander the back roads through Georgia and the Carolina's heading toward the ocean (stopping for treasures along the way, of course). This sunrise view is from Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina, south of Wilmington.

If you could look really far, straight out from this point, you would see Morocco in N. Africa.

The rivers were high along the backroads---I love the cypress knee swamps and spanish moss in the low country.

This old house in historic Newberry SC (south of Greenville) had some really unusual porch posts----directly across the street is the Red Door Antiques shop where I found some good stuff, and really enjoyed meeting owner Norm Helms and his mother Lily.

Love the metal storage tank painted like a strawberry!

Hi, Love the ocean pics and the backroads too!!!!!! I'm a backroads kindof girl myself. I'm hitting the road with my daughter to get some beach time in this weekend! Thanks for sharing your pics. By the way stop by our blog and check us out; we have some workshop pics up. Gerri

LUCKY GIRL!!! I adore the beach and just don't get to go anymore. Glad you are taking the time and doing it! Can't think of a place that is any more peaceful or relaxing. Have some interest in the log cabin; a friend wants it. PTL I hope she gets it because she will restore it and use it as part of her house. Hope you found some good things on your journey. blessings, carrell

Have to find out more about The Red Door Antique Shop in Newberry, SC, that may not be too awfully far from me. The Beach pics brought back wonderful memories from me, My hubby is from Little River, SC right next to North Myrtle Beach we hardly ever get back there to visit and it is only 2.5 hours away!! Janna
