After a month of good weather and temps in the 70’s and 80’s, we just could not face two days of rain and temps in the 40’s. Plans to camp at Myrtle Beach have been scraped and the day was spent on the road – Geezers Go North.
We found the good and bad of the road over the past day. Hoping to spend the night around Charleston, we could not find room at any motel. They said it's “fashion week” and a big soccer tournament is going on. Driving on to Georgetown, SC, we got a room at the Harbor Inn (sounded nice, “spacious and clean rooms guaranteed” according to their brochure). The room turned out to be cramped and ill-appointed, but at least it smelled bad.
Breakfast at a small bakery along the road this morning offered a bit of redemption. Big breakfast sandwiches, fresh pastries and fast internet made us linger a while. When we finally made the decision to flee north, we got into serious travel mode. As I type this piece, we are crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel. We’ll find a motel on the other side, and plan to stop at Chinquteague in the morning on the way home.
