Greenville, SC: Chris and Jen

Chris, Jen, and Bryce are fellow travelers AND Volkswagen lovers…so of course we liked them from the start! (For those that didn’t know, we used to own a delightful 1977 Westy). They went on their own cross country journey about a year ago in a VW Bus with their 2 year old. You can read all about it at “We Stay Gone”.

We had a great time in Greenville with them…Bryce and Bella had fun playing, fighting over toys and chasing each other around the yard. They have a gigantic Great Dane as well…gorgeous. They showed us around the beautiful downtown area and took us to the Mellow Mushroom (a delicious little spot) and out for ice cream and coffee. It was so odd to see Christmas lights in all the trees…but no snow! There is a really neat suspension bridge and park downtown. It’s a fun walking area.

I also had the chance to meet another friend while we were there. Kate came over with her kids to check out the RV…and then we all went out for coffee at Port City Java. It was so fun to put names with faces!

  1. I’m starting to think you could do a book of photos of coffee shops across the U.S. ; ) I have seen quite a few really fun and funky ones on this blog. The bright ,colorful floor at the Mellow Mushroom was great. Have a great Christmas.

  2. It was very, very ODD to read your blog entry…as I’m sitting parked outside the (closed) Port City Java in the West End that you mention! (I have to pirate internet somehow….) (My daughter is performing at the Peace Center, and I am waiting in the car….)

    I’m glad you enjoyed Greenville. It’s a great downtown now!
