It was a short drive from St. George to Columbia, the Capitol of South Carolina. The capitol building had been the last to remove the Confederate flag. The results of the year 2000 compromise are visible in our photo.
With that mission accomplished it was time for lunch. After checking out the billboards on the way into town, we settled on Maurice's Barbecue. Maurice has multiple outlets in the Columbia area. His was the first yellow barbecue sauce we had encountered. Linda pronounced it "best of the trip." The hash on rice is a real bonus! OK, I know yellow hash might not be your first thought for a delicious lunch - but this just goes too far!.
From Columbia, we headed north into North Carolina where we will visit with Linda's sister and her husband in Albemarle.
