11/21/13 Thursday at Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA)
Slept in, wrote blog in the morning while John watched TV. After lunch we went to the Old Sheldon Church. Before we could leave, note how the leaf doesn’t want John to go. This is the second time this has happened here.
Beware, you can point your GPS to Old Sheldon Church Rd, but it’s just 1.5 miles from the intersection of Alternate 17 and Old Sheldon Church Rd (county 21), near Yemassee. Keep your eyes out for the brick columns on the north side because there’s not much in the way of signage. Where you do see “No Parking” signs along the road is another clue. You can park across from the building though. The serene, majestic stance of these ruins reminded both of us of Windsor Ruins – on the Natchez Trace, north of Natchez State Park and south of Vicksburg. Posted on April 13, 2013.
Next up: Yemassee Post Office. We saw a sign for “Village Post Office” /Flea Market. That was just a place for supplies and where you can drop off your mail. The GPS and road signs took us to a brick building that could have been a Post Office, but is was empty. Later we found it, a mobile van. This was necessary because the real post office had developed terrible mold.
We then searched for a Yemassee General Store for milk, found it but they didn’t have any then. Bummer. So we figured we could manage without rather than spend fuel and time driving to Beaufort. Back at home we spent the rest of the afternoon on the Internet.
