The drive from Charleston to Gainsville requires lots of small roads which depending on your mood, can be a terribly frustrating or terribly exciting thing. On our way home we spotted this picturesque peach stand and quickly made a U-turn. Vidalias, tomatoes, and peaches for sale and you can bet Mr. Del will tell you how proud he is of his produce.
Little did we know, we were stumbling upon a movie star. Del was an extra in Forest Gump, Radio, The Patriot, among others, and he showed us the papers to prove it. What was meant to be a five minute stop quickly turned into a twenty minute chat — and we were more than happy to listen to his animated stories. And true to his word, we’ve had peaches for breakfast every morning this week and they are the best of the best.
