Friday at Myrtle Beach did end up being a cold and blustery day. Jim took Big RED to a gas station in the afternoon to get him a drink of good old #2 diesel. Then he went out after dinner and put away the water hose and filter because they were forecasting lows of 28 to 30 degrees, depending on which TV station you were watching. It's a good thing he did because the temperature did go down to 30 degrees!!!
When we left yesterday morning at 10:15 the temperatures were still only in the low 40's and there was a pretty good breeze blowing, so it felt even colder than that. Once back to US 17, we turned South and followed it to Charleston, where we by-passed the city by using I 526. Once around the city and back to US 17 we followed it all the way here to Yemasee and the The Oaks at Point South, stopping at the Carolina Cider Company store which is just a few miles before you get to the park.
The reason for stopping at the cider store was so that Linda could purchase some peach cider and some cherry cider. We stopped the last time we were in this area and she really liked the flavor of both. ;-)
When we did pull up by the office, it was just 2:00 so it took us 3 hours and 45 minutes to drive the 178 miles down here and stop at the cider shop.
"The Oaks" is a membership park but anyone can stay here. They also accept the Passport America Card, so it's not too expensive. It's an older park, but everything seems to be pretty well maintained.
We'll only be staying here for the one night and today, we'll head down trough Georgia and into Northern Florida where we'll stay for a couple nights. Then, on Tuesday, we'll go on to DeBary.
Did you know that today is "National Button Day"?
