Rafael, thank you very much! I am happy to see that you enjoy my photos as I do yours!
Best wishes, May
Thanks for calling back. As I mentioned earlier, the second photo (above) was taken at Lake Drummond within Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge back in April 2007. If you see anything else you're interested in, please let me know. Take care.
Cool, thanks. :0) They were closed when I was there, so I wasn't able to get a tour. Maybe another time...
You're right. There aren't that many mountains in South Carolina. Most of the state is fairly flat. I've been to Columbia a few times...a nice city. Charleston, on the coast, is the place I'd like to visit eventually. Plenty of history and ocean settings. Hopefully, I can get back down there soon.
Thanks. :0) I have plenty of other waterfall photos on my site. This is the only one from Shenandoah National Park so far. I hope to get more eventually...
Nice view of the tunnel portal - has a sense of mystery about it. Nice collection of photos of historic buildings including the covered bridges that May pointed me to. Regards, Chris
I grew up learning about the Mordecai House and the paranormal activity firsthand from my mother. Her family lived in a small house on Person street, across from what is presently Person Street Pharmacy. The property is located several city blocks from the Mordecai House. Person street was notoriously muddy, so planks were laid down in the tracks travelled by horses, wagons and carriages; consequently, the street, or road, was called the Plank Road. My mother's family were sitting on the porch of the little house situated close to the road and suddenly the loud sound of hoofbeats were heard coming up from the area of the Mordecai property. The "horse" was a carpenter's sawhorse; it galloped on up Plank Road until it was out of sight. My mother related stories of going down to the "Mordecai Place" on moonlit nights to watch "the lady" in filmy garb, dance back and forth over the style that spanned the fence there. My own experience is one I shall never forget. It was a sultringly hot night in early July, 1942. My fiance and I parked there on Mimosa Street, across of the Mordecai House. I did not realize where we were. As we sat discussing our wedding, which was a couple of weeks away, the wind began to blow- but ONLY in the small tree (one of a number that lined the street there) under which we sat. It became so that the boughs bent and swayed and scraped the top of the car. I began to cry and we were both terrified. When we arrived home, I related the incident to my mother, still in tears. "Where were you?", she asked. "On a little street named Mimosa,", I replied. "My God", mother exclaimed, 'You were at the Mordecai Place" I shall never forget that incident; do I believe in hauntings? Do I believe the Mordecai House is haunted? YES!! emphatically. Thank you for your informative and enjoyable website. Sincerely, L. Shinbara, Raleigh.
Thanks! :0) Russell Cave National Monument was the location of one of the most complete archaeological finds in the eastern United States, indicating almost continual human habitation over a period of 9,000 years. There is also a species of scorpion only native to Russell Cave, one with no tail. Russell Cave became a national monument in 1961.
I guess so, Chris and they would need good shoes! :)
Wonderful landscape and reflection!
