These three months have flown by. We’re on the road this morning and heading back, taking our time and enjoying the scenery, well except for the thousands of cars we’ll encounter.
What are we leaving behind – a family of friends.
Why come south? Our minds and hearts may be willing to shovel snow, clear driveways, and dig out cars, but our bodies aren’t.
We are also much happier and healthier being able to be outside, walk, have people to interact with, and enjoy the early spring here. It doesn’t have to be hot, it just has to be so we aren’t housebound because of the cold and snow and don’t have to shovel. 🙂
You can be as alone as you like or you can be busy all day – your choice.
When all these groups go on adventures, there is one thing everyone does – eat out. And, do they ever have a lot of good restaurants down here. Wikipedia says there are over 1,900 restaurants in this area.
So, I’ll share a few food photos, and I’ll hope you’re not in between meals. Those sticky bun pancakes with pecans on top, in the lower center, were worth every calorie until I get home to the treadmill anyway.
Everyone will be headed home this week to about every state you can name from North Carolina up through Montana, and into Canada and Nova Scotia. May they all travel safely.
Why head home April 1st? The snow certainly hasn’t melted in many northern states yet. That date is the start of the tourist season in Myrtle Beach. The rental rates go up two or three times the amount we pay for a winter month, and that rate is for one week. You could pay cash for a nice car for what it would cost you to stay here three months between April and October. 🙂
Next post will come from the seacoast of New Hampshire. See you soon.
