Saying Goodbye and Back Into North Carolina

Williamston, NC.

48 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Today: Partly cloudy. Highs around 72°F. East wind to 7 MPH.
Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows around 48°F. East southeast wind 1 to 7 MPH.

Because most things got done the night before, we were ready to leave Virginia Beach a little earlier than normal. So, after saying their good-bye's to Joe, we were on the road by 9:35.

Again, it was hard to leave. I don't think it ever gets really easy to leave your son or daughter's house, knowing that it will be around 6 months, (or longer), before you'll be seeing them again. : (  But, Jim and Linda are also looking forward to seeing Mike and his family again, so it was time to move on and continue our adventure. : )

From Joe's, we followed I-264 West to I-64 where we turned South and took it back to US 17. Following 17 to the SW brought us back here to the Pierce Mobile Home and RV Park in Williamston, NC, where we had stayed at on the 16th of April, our way up to Virginia Beach.

Again, the owners were very friendly and helpful and soon we were parked in site # 19C. This is also a nice site for an overnight stay. It's level enough that Jim didn't have to do any additional leveling.

Of course the first thing to do after we arrived, was to get the electric hooked up and dump Bobbie T's very full tanks. Once that was done, Jim added some water to the fresh water tank and then put all the hoses back away, so he wouldn't have to do it this morning.

Today, we'll head West from Williamston on US 64, which will take us right over to Raleigh. It's 4 lane all the way and should be fairly easy going. Once we get to Raleigh, things may change though, sometimes we've gotten around the city in no time at all, and other times, it's been a nightmare.

Hopefully there'll be no nightmares today. ; )

Oh, I almost forgot!!!! It was 12:10 when we arrived here at Peirce's so we traveled  126 miles in 2 hours and 35 minutes.

Did you know that a rat can survive longer without water than a camel?

  1. Yep, Raleigh traffic can be a challenge, as can many cities. It's good to visit with family. You have much more freedom than most folks do.
