Greetings from Spartanburg, home of the Monsons!
Matt and I found brother Andrew and cousin Elizabeth when we arrived just after 1PM for lunch at a wood fired pizza place. Luckily we got to sit outside because I don’t think I could have handled the smoky smell inside!
The sky was quite the backdrop!
I started with a side salad, which happened to be FREE because we ordered 3 pizzas!?
Mushroom, Greek, and an Olive Mixed
I had one of each flavor
It was my favorite kind of pizza! Chewy crust, cheesy with lots of flavorful toppings
After lunch we buckled up
And went a’walkin’
I know why they call it Sparkle City – the sky was glistening blue!
A blue rectangle for your visual entertainment:
Andrew led us to a motorcycle convention going on. I wasn’t that impressed, but the bikes were pretty colors
And we wrapped up our tour of the town with a spin through Wofford, where Andrew went for a semester when he was kicked out of Tulane by Katrina
We paid our respects
And headed back to the car. We’re now at the hotel and sprucing up before a really fun dinner. We’ve already ran into so many fun family members!
