My search for relatively unspoiled countryside can be rewarded within 20 miles of home and here is a place that really appeals to me.
Al and I drove around out in the country and found this great old, small house in a field. These are getting fewer and further between. Photographing or painting them may be the only way to preserve them.
The Olenoy Community Center is located in Pickens County and is used for events such as weddings and has bluegrass concert, http://www.folkjam.org/recurring-jam/us/sc/pumpkintown/oolenoy-bluegrass-friday-nightss. It is worth a visit just for its wonderful feel and presence.
There are great places within an hour or so from Lunenburg, NS. The only aimless riding around happens to folks who either don’t or respond to what their eyes perceive.

Rain on windows and windshields makes a filtered effect as the it splatters and drips down the glass forming a wonderful scrim.
