Strawberry Hill Field Trip

April 6, 2017,  

3097 Hiway 11 West,

 Chesnee, South Carolina


Let's go to South Carolina and shoot Cooley's Strawberry Hill USA farm.   Strawberries should be coming in and the peach trees should be blooming. Five miles up the road is a small southern town called Chesnee. We can shoot Main Street with an old mom and pop's hardware store and other old town buildings and people.


Meet at Cracker Barrel(105 Commercial Blvd, Flatrock, NC) off Upward Road and I-26 at 10am.   Park away from the restaurant along Upward Road.   We will take I-26 East to Hwy 11.  Turn left on Hwy. 11 to 3097 Hwy 11 West, Chesnee, S.C.   


After shooting the farm and buying a few strawberries to take home we can have lunch at their restaurant and ice cream parlor. Then we can continue into Chesnee for some street photography. On the return trip we can turn left on Hwy 9 South to Lake Bowen. There is an old closed gas station on the left, circle through the lake boat ramps and park back on Hwy 9 North cross Hwy 11 on the left is an old abandon farm house that we can shoot from the road.  Then continue North to Hwy 14. Turn left to I-26 and return to our cars.

see you there!
