into the South

Oh hi. I'm home and I'm beat, but I wanted to share with you some of the scenery of the South, and I promise you stories when I'm feeling more alert.

overgrown pretty weeds and abandoned buildings are a staple of the South.

My dad has been going to Tony's Ice Cream since he was a kid, and I always go there when I come for a visit. It's been around since the 1920s and has the most delicious homemade ice cream.
