This is South Carolina??!!
Just got back from Greenville where we went with Mom to help her explore the place and look for a place to live. It was my second trip up there - this time we ventured a little farther downtown and went to Falls Park. I have to say it was prolly the most scenic location I've ever been to in South Carolina (barely edging out the parking lot of the Squat & Gobble). I didn't go swimming like some of the people, nor did I slide down the rocks like this dude (who judging from the way he bounced when he went down must have had one seriously sore butt when he got home), but I did venture out in the middle of the rocks and water. I got a little far out, then realized I'd have to traverse some fairly slippery rocks to get back. Came to one rock in particular and had to work up the nerve to jump on it. There is something about taking your life in your own hands and living dangerously that is.....COMPLETELY STUPID!!! I was an idiot for going out that far, and if I were that kids Father there's no way he would ever have been anywhere near those rocks to slide down them. Ugh...playing games with life....I don't understand it. Anyway, it was a good trip - I ate way too much (they have a bakery there called Strossners that make a "Peanut Butter Volcano" - dark chocolate cake with a layer of PB inside....holy crap!), drank too much (just kidding) and got to know what will undoubtedly become my home-away-from home for the foreseeable future.
