Paula Francis and Linda Wheatley smile at Hampton House
The Happiness Walk is powered a duo of long-distance lady walkers from Vermont who recently traversed Highway 17 through the ACE Basin. They are walking from Vermont to Florida for their cause, but they are doing it in stages with this most recent excursion going from Raleigh to Savannah. These dynamic ladies stay somewhere different each night and on February 17 they stayed at the Hampton House in downtown Walterboro.
When they stopped walking on February 17th they were near Sheldon and elected to stay in Walterboro for the night. It was their first visit to town and an impromptu welcoming party broke out that evening with neighbors from Hampton Street. Despite the cold weather gripping the Lowcountry at that time, the Happiness Walkers told me that they had received a warm welcome everywhere during the Lowcountry leg of their journey.
