2008 Jim and Sandra Schmid with Sandra’s father walk at Mepkin Abbey – Moncks Corner, SC

We were in Charleston, SC to visit Sandra’s parents for the Christmas holiday’s. We spent the afternoon of December 29 with Sandra’s father walking the garden trails at Mepkin Abbey in nearby Moncks Corner. The spelling is not a mistake the town was named for its landowner, Thomas Monck back in 1728.
