Turnabout in Fair Play, SC

Fair Play SC

On August 8, 2012 I was on a trip from eastern Tennessee to Atlanta for work.  Along the way I went through North and South Carolina and happened to go through Fair Play, South Carolina.  Not sure how the town got its name, but there is something about the name coming from a fight.

Interestingly, throughout most of this small town, the Motto “Our Name Says It All” is posted.  The photo on the left is the main entry sign.

Of course, there is plenty more in Fair Play


There is the Fair Play Post Office

The Fairplay Cafe.  Wonder if their prices are fair???

There is a Fair Play Presbyterian Church

The Fairplay Super Market doesn’t look that super…

Must be Amish nearby if there is a Yoder’s in Fair Play. Maybe the name came from something Amish.  I wonder…..

Fair Play MenagerieAnd this is my favorite sign!! The Fair Play Church of God…”Theres Only One Way” with some interesting Road Signs all around it. Speed Limit 316?  C’mon now!!

Travelographer Extraordinaire. I Enjoy the Ride by traveling and seeing the world around me. We are so busy speeding down the freeways of life that we miss out on the back roads and all the wonderful little stories that every place offers. So, I try to take the less beaten paths and see the real world. I have visited all 50 United States and many provinces in Canada, nearly all prefectures in Japan as well as Seaul, Korea, Shanghai and Suzhou, China and Cenu, Philippines. Also been to Mexico. Father of five, grandfather of 10 and happily married to my sweetheart for nearly 38 years. Fluent in Japanese. Happy and well traveled. See details at http://www.sumoflam.biz/SumoflamBio.htm
