The Oaks Plantation

The Oaks, Goose Creek, S.C.
I won't have internet connection hooked up in my new little nest until Thursday so for the time being it is easier to use pictures I have on file rather than trying to upload new ones. Luckily I have a lot in my files!

This is the Oaks Plantation in Goose Creek.  The original house was built in the late 1600's although it has been destroyed by fire and rebuilt a couple of times. This building was probably built in 1892. There was another fire a few years ago and I thought it had been destroyed but apparently it was one of the out- buildings. It is now all part of the Golf & Country Club.There is still a very impressive avenue of oaks leading up to the property.

I spent my day back at my house in town cleaning, mopping and trying to leave things in order.  I am meeting a writer who is doing research on the early owner of the home tomorrow after work to give him a chance to get a feel for the person he is writing about. The couple told me to make dinner reservations at any restaurant I wanted to eat at after the house tour. Oh boy! I made reservations at the Macintosh. Yum.

I looked at the dinner menu and I think I'd go for the flounder. Enjoy the food.

Your photo today features a very well-tended place. Lovely architecture.

How exciting to meet with the writer and how nice they are taking you out for dinner. You deserve all the best!

Blessings to you sweet Joan as you venture into a new neighborhood and home. The best to you!
