The Peachoid

One of the great things about my home town of Gaffney, SC, is the Peachoid, a one-million gallon water tower in the shape of a peach. I took this picture at my high school reunion in 2004.

It used to be that no one knew where Gaffney was. Now everyone traveling I-85 between Atlanta and Charlotte, NC (a very busy road) knows Gaffney.

As part of my blogging experiment, I created a blog about US 29, which I-85 essentially follows. 29 runs right through Gaffney, and my two sisters still live within a few miles of it, in South Carolina and in Virginia. One day we may take a road trip and follow 29 from Pensacola to Baltimore. Then we’ll complete the blog.
