This morning we went to see Myrtle Beach. The tourists are gone, the hotels and vacation rentals are nearly empty, the amusement parks are closed and what shops that are still open were very quiet. There are a few people walking around. They appeared to be snowbirds, like us. It was cold and windy as we walked on the beach and at times the wind blew sand up in our face so we went up to the boardwalk to do our walking.
Once we were done with that we went back to the RV and drove to Charleston, SC. When we were in this area a few years ago we stayed at James Island County Park. It’s a beautiful park and we wanted to stay there again.
The campground was booked up but they have a large field in the back for the overflow. No hookups there, but the price was right. Bernie found a sunny spot so we could make use of that solar panel on the side.
A bonus was that today is the opening day for the annual Holiday Festival of Lights at James Island County Park. Three miles of over 700 light displays, marshmallow roasting, sand sculpture, giant greeting cards, and so much more.
