Bishopville Shoot

My second week at ETV started off our summer long journey of traveling around South Carolina. Our first stop was Bishopville, SC on Tuesday. We had a very busy day of interviewing Bishopville residents and visiting some beautiful and unique sites. I enjoyed travelling to a part of South Carolina that I had never visited before and hearing from the locals about what makes it so great. As a native South Carolinian I was so happy to find even more reasons to love SC! Today we headed to Charleston for a story right on the edge of the water at The Charleston Maritime Center. I love that the work I am doing is taking me to such beautiful places! I not only get to enjoy the areas we visit but I get to meet so many interesting people! I have already participated in several exciting projects that have connected me with such passionate and welcoming people. I look forward to sharing some of their stories with everyone soon. I am sure my time here will continue to create one of a kind opportunities for me to experience throughout the summer!

Favorite part of week 2: Getting to know a friendly traveler that stopped in at Pearl Fryar’s Topiary Garden in Bishopville! Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time. When we visited Pearl’s garden another guest with a classic car just happened to be visiting at the same time. He had a great story and was nice enough to let us borrow his car for some beautiful pictures. I always love meeting wonderful people in unexpected places and ETV has already given me the opportunity to do that so many times within these two weeks. Now if I could just happen to run into Darius Rucker somewhere…
