Yes, I know that when James Taylor was writing this song, he was referring to North Carolina. But when I hear "Carolina", my mind automatically goes to the home of my birth - South Carolina. Being born and bred a Southerner, I enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that remind me of my "homeland". South Carolina has it's own culture, it's own traditions, and it's own language. The land is as beautiful as it is diverse. We have those high blue mountains in the northern part of our state and the beautiful marshy coastline to the south. We have the best of both worlds right outside our screen door. If you are a true Southerner at heart or would like to be, pour yourself a glass of sweet tea and take a look at my list. If you aren't, well, bless your heart!
