Since our last update we spent a few more days around the Myrtle Beach area. We went in town one night and tried to have dinner at a local’s favorite called Hoskins,, but it was closed. Then we headed over to a place called Sea Blue,, but they were closed as well ,, geeeezzz!! So we jumped across the street and ate at TGIF. Not what we really had a hankering for but it was just fine.
After dinner and a little grocery shopping we jumped in the jeep and I thought,,,, how the heck do we get home!!! I sort of forgot where the heck I was. But Diane had us covered. She so graciously said,,, just go up there and turn right OLD MAN!! WOW!!! I can’t wait until she misplaces something. And I’m sure I won’t have to wait long!! LOL!!
The rest of the time we just enjoyed the park. More bike rides.
A little more nature.
And a little more chatting with fellow Rvers. This is our neighbors (Charlie and Sandra) leaving. They were attending a Cedar Creek rally. Nice setup!!
I will say again that Willow Tree was probably the best private park we have stayed at so far while on the road. AND WOW,,, 1 more month will make 1 year on the road and 16 months fulltime. Time flies.
But today (Wednesday 10/16/13) was another travel day. So we packed up and was on the road at 9:30 headed out on a 135 mile journey to the Oak Plantation Campground just outside Charleston South Carolina.
¾ of the drive today was pretty mellow but ¼ of it on highway 17 was in some pretty heavy traffic and through the middle of a couple towns. Nothing horrible but not what I would call a perfect travel day.
We did cross over a pretty neat bridge on the way. It was the Arthur J Ravenel JR. Bridge. It is North Americas longest Cable/stayed bridge at 2 ½ miles long.
After getting all set up we ventured out for a walk around the park.
There are some great huge Black Oak and Living Oak Tree’s around the park. And even though it’s a bad picture we saw some birds enjoying the view from the top of the trees.
There is a nice pond but we are in the south so I’m sure this will be a common sight for us for a while!!
We are looking forward to our visit here in Charleston. Tomorrow we are going down to historic downtown to visit a historic market area and maybe take a carriage tour. Stay tuned!!
