A Kick-Back Day and Florida To South Carolina

Yemassee, SC.

61 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Today: Mostly sunny with areas of fog. Highs around 81°F. South wind 5 to 13 MPH, gusting to 19 MPH.
Tonight: Mostly clear with patchy fog. Lows around 64°F. South southeast wind 3 to 12 MPH, gusting to 17 MPH.

Being that everything went smoothly on the segment from DeBary to Callahan, there really wasn't much to do Monday except to just kick back. ; ) And, except for going to lunch at the Cedar River Seafood Restaurant in Callahan, that's exactly what Jim and Linda did.

After returning from the restaurant, Jim snapped a few pictures of Bobbie T. and Kelly's Family CG.

Yesterday morning, we left Kelly's about 5 minutes before 10:00 and continued North from the RV Park on US 301. Following 301 took us into Georgia up to Jesup where 301 joined up with US.84. 84 took us over to Hinesville/Flemington, where we turned off on GA 196 and followed it over to US 17. 17 then took us up to Richmond Hill, where we turned North on I-95.

I-95 took us up past Savannah, up into South Carolina, and to The Oaks At Point South RV Park at the junction of 95 and US-17. (Exit #33).

note: The traffic on I-95 was very heavy and in the future, we may try to find a route around this section of road.

This park is part of the Encore / Thousand Trails system, but the rent sites to the general public and they honor the Passport America discount.

It's an OK park for an overnight stop, but it's surely not worth the full price of around $38.  For about $24, including tax and other add on charges, it's not too bad though.

I'ts an older park and most of the sites are really close together, but they're fairly long and fairly level.

The last time we were in this area, Linda noticed a shop where they were selling all different flavors of cider so after they had Bobbie T all set up, they took CLT and headed for the shop.

At the shop, Linda bought 2 gallons of cider. : )

For dinner, Jim cooked some brats on the grill while Linda got out some slaw, buns and some Pecan Pie that she had bought at the cider shop.

Mmmmmmm!!!! Good!!! ; )

Oh, I almost forgot, when we pulled off of I-95 we pulled into a gas station and bought Bobbie T a drink of 87 octane before coming here to the park. It was 1:25 when we pulled up to the office, so we stopped for gas and traveled 149 miles in 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Today, we'll head up to Myrtle Beach where Jim has made reservations at a park that's supposed to have sites right on the ocean. From past experience there's usually a sand dune in between the sites and the ocean though and you may or may not be able to see the water from your site.

Did you know that Dr. Seuss invented the word "nerd"?
