|Poinsett Bridge, Greenville, SC|
Poinsett Bridge is the oldest bridge in South Carolina and perhaps in the entire southeastern United States. Named for Joel Roberts Poinsett, it was built in 1820 as part of a road from Columbia, South Carolina to Saluda Mountain. The stone bridge, which includes a 14-foot Gothic arch and stretches 130 feet over Little Gap Creek, may have been designed by Robert Mills, architect of the Washington Monument. Though no longer in use, the bridge remains largely intact and is part of the 120-acre Poinsett Bridge Heritage Preserve. There is a nature trail a few hundred yards from the bridge.The bridge was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

It was really fun. There were a few young people there with family groups and one little gal in the front row who was a daughter of one of the comedians. She was eager to participate and enjoyed seeing her mom on stage. At one point in the action she was worried and called out, "are you okay mummy?"
What a gift it is to be able to make people laugh. These folks did and we all had a good time.

|True Meridian, Charleston, SC|
True MeridianThe true meridian is the plane that passes through true north poles and true south poles at the spot of the observer. The difference between true meridian and magnetic meridian is that the true meridian is fixed while the magnetic meridian is formed through the movement of the needle.[unreliable source] True bearing is the horizontal angle between true meridian and a line.
Henry D. Thoreau classified this true meridian versus the magnetic meridian in order to have a more qualitative, intuitive, and abstract function. He used the true meridian since his compass varied by a few degrees. There were some variations. When he noted the sight line for the True Meridian from his family's house to the depot, he could check the declination of his compass before and after surveying throughout the day. He noted this variation down.
Doing an image search it appears there are many of these markers set up in the early to mid 1800's and they continue to be a curiosity.

Oh yum. They even had peaches out already. Happy day! The only thing I bought was a perfect tomato and I can already taste it. The scene at Marion Square is different now with the Bennett Hotel open but that does offer outside seating with service. It all feels very bustling and festive.

I am still walking as much as I can, aiming for the 10,000 step goal. I don't make it every night but it's good to have a goal. In fact, I started old lady zumba class again no matter how uncoordinated I am.
I took this picture of the Jewish cemetery on Sycamore Rd. on last nights walk. I have good friends resting behind those walls.
