We got to visit with my mom's other sis, Ina. I love teasing her saying, "Ina, Ina from South Carolina" The first thing she said when we got there was, "Now, I'm no cook like my sister's are." She told me on the phone earlier in the day that I had to come and cook for her, and yet, the first thing she did was put a whole "spread" on the table. I think the people down here worry that we are starving because all we've been doing is sitting visiting and EATING!! Get a chance to visit briefly with my cousins Randy and Jim and Tim, but can't get Kathy to answer her phone, even tho I talked to her while I was in Pigeon Forge. (Reminds me of some one else I know, but I won't mention any names! HA HA--you know who you are!)
As we drive today, the geography is changing. No more bright foliage, everything is flattening out and we can tell we are headed towards the ocean. We pass through many fields of cotton that are being harvested and the trees, instead of wearing their brilliant colors are now draped in lacy Spanish Moss.
We are anxious to head towards Ike's brother's in North Carolina so that I can make arrangements to fly home if I have to. We decide to head to Myrtle Beach for the night because I'm feeling too tired to drive all the way to Gary's. Once again we find the "off season" hotel rates less expensive than a campground, so "boo-hoo" we have to spend the night in a georgeous hotel on the beach!!
"No Pets Allowed" policy so we got Auggie Doggy and took him for a very long moonlight stroll along the terrific boardwalk and beach before putting him in the motorhome for a night alone.
Myrtle Beach is very much nicer than Atlantic City. This would be a great place to spend some time in the summer; even November 3rd brings a balmy evening that is tee-shirt weather, allowing us the opportunity to sit out on our balcony until late. Waking to our great view of the beach, I'm kinda sorry that we can't stay here a little longer, but leave we must!!
