I’m Actually Not A Great Traveler
It seems like this has become more a travel blog than anything. Just so you all know . . . it isn’t. I’ve just been on the road a bit more than normal lately. I’m actually more a homebody than a traveler. That being said, here’s a couple of pictures from Octoberfest in Newberry, SC. See, you just need to have beer (or chocolate) to get me there.
The celebration took up several blocks of downtown Newberry with plenty of food to choose from, a gaggle of shopping stalls, and two beer gardens. My favorite part of the visit (besides the beer) was a tour of the Newberry Opara House.
Newberry was founded by Germans and they built the Opera House in 1881. It had many purposes since that time, serving as the city center for much of the period. It is now an Opera House and still has a busy show schedule. It is cozy — only seats around 400 people. I’m thinking of going back for a show sometime.
For anyone who remembers this is actually a writing blog, I’ve been pretty busy on the writing front too, and I promise to post an update soon.
