Boone Hall Plantation, South Carolina

When I was a kid I was obsessed (like most Polish people were) with TV shows from different countries: Brazil, Portugal, England, America and many more I do not remember. One of them was American show called “North and South”. Patrick Swayze as Ory Maine made my heart skip a beat. I always admired the house that was his characters house.

To my delight, when I went to Charleston, SC with my mom, I accidentally found out that the plantation used in the series is not that far away. Of course I made my mom go with me to check it out. When I saw the road with the trees on both sides, I could not hide my excitement. I started pretending to be one of his sisters,  Brett Maine (I am blond like she is, so it was only fitted I was her). I got out of the car, started running up and down that road screaming: “Ory is home”, like I saw on TV screen. My mom was looking at me like I had lost my mind, but I was simply happy. I was in a place that many of my favorite movies and TV series were filmed. After we toured the house and the grounds, even my mom was impressed with it`s beauty. She was disappointed we could not walk around longer (we got there less than  2 hrs before closing time). I was in heaven and I could not wait to tell my sister all about it.

It is a gorgeous place called Boone Hall Plantation, worth seeing, especially if you love movies like I do. I wished like my mom, that I could stay longer and explore more, but I was happy I could see at least a little bit.

My mom is not a person who is easily impressed and she does not express her feelings easily as well, so when she told me that it is beautiful and she wishes that we had more time there, I knew it was a great idea to come. That was a road trip I can honestly say my mother  has enjoyed. Although she complained it was to many hours to drive, it was a pleasant experience for both of us.
