Very pretty 200 yards of riverside. There is even an old train depot they left up (most people now use it to smoke).
Day 13 - Savannah to Charlotte
This morning we packed most of the trailer up but left it at the campsite while we drove into Savannah for breakfast. We parked near the old town river walk and spent some time looking at the archetecture before going to Huey's on the River. Huey's is a creole restaurant and makes some fabulous beignets. Michelle didn't like the hollandaise sauce on the eggs benedict but discovered she really likes cheese grits. After breakfast we spent some more time exploring the river edge. We discovered some old vaults built into the retaining wall on the bluff. Instead of being paid, the archetect who designed the retaining wallwas given the rights to collect rents in these spaces for 20 years. We headed back to the KOA to hook up the trailer and after a small hic-up with a drained battery we were on the road to visit "The Z family" in Charlotte. We met the Zoutewelle's on a Disney Cruise last year when we were seated at the table with them. They have a daughter almost exactly Michelle's age and a younger son. A storm blew up on our way and, in an attempt to
She finally tried them today... even though she if offered them regularly (including last week at her aunts house).
avoid the worst, we took a bit of a detour through the countryside. There are a lot of very pretty little roads in North Carolina. Oh, and it's not flat. We managed to miss most of the storm but got a bit buffeted by the winds. We finally arrived at the Zoutewelle's that evening. We have been looking forward to seeing them on this trip and plan to stay with them for two nights. Ellen and her Mom put together a great dinner and we spent the evening catching up.
My name is Tony Wilson. I, my wife Anne, and my Daughter Michelle live in Atascadero, CA, and lead typical lives, we like to think.
We love traveling... all over the place. Often, our travels are routine, or only slightly exciting for a short time. Good things in life come in small measures. However, on occasion, we do have more epic journeys and people like to hear about them. These are our travel sagas.. I hope you enjoy them.... full info
Heading into South CarolinaMost of these signs are on bridges, which often have those 20 foot sections that dip up and down and make the trailer bounce... which in turn makes it very difficult to get a good picture. Anne has been doing great.
And then North CarolinaThis one was a little fuzzy since we were heading into a storm. Also, we kind of skipped the coast of South Carolina. Our Bad. I hear it's lovely.
