Not being in too much of a hurry to get home to Rhode Island, we are taking our time and sometimes circuitous routes as we head in a generally northward direction.
Our first stop after leaving Florida in our wake was historic St. Marys, Georgia where we toured the submarine museum and camped at the Kings Bay Navy Base where they refit Trident submarines. Al worked on electronics for these giant subs.
Al dreaming about work again.
St. Simons lighthouse in Brunswick, GA.
One of our most interesting Harvest Host campsites was at Keller’s Flea Market in Savannah.
You could buy anything at this massive marketplace. From “fine” jewelry…
…to the latest men’s footwear
and the widest assortment of stove burner covers anywhere!
A few vendors had some nice antiques.
Al found the placement of tires next to fresh produce a bit strange.
This great old school bus was outback with lots of other rusty relics.
Spent a day and night at Myrtle Beach State Park in South Carolina.
Nice beach there, but a bit cool during our visit.
We were in fine company aboard the ferry to Pleasure Island, North Carolina.
Camped among some other interesting vehicles at Fort Fisher.
Pier at Kure Beach.
Too windy to enjoy the beach.
I wanted to see Surf City, but it was a bit of a letdown.
Nice view of the Intracoastal Waterway from our Boondockers Welcome host Cory’s home in Sneads Ferry, North Carolina.
Cory took this great shot of us with haRVy at his house.
We had another nice three-day visit with Nancy and Dexter in Oriental, NC.
Another short ferry ride and a bit of a drive brought us to the town landing in Belhaven, NC where we successfully and stealthily boondocked overnight.
We arrived just in time to enjoy the weekly music jam.
Some of the old-timers couldn’t move real swiftly but they could still play and sing some good tunes.
This couple sailed in on their 17-foot catboat.
These purple martins greeted us with song the next morning.
Not sure if this used to be the jail or not, but I love the textures.
River Forest Manor – many years ago we had an amazing buffet dinner in this historic building during our sail up the Intracoastal Waterway in our sailboat Isosceles. The primary reason we wanted to visit the town again.
