Enjoying the South

  We enjoyed our time at Myrtle Beach. The park we stayed at was only a few miles from the beach and we went there several times. On Saturday we were sitting at the beach soaking in the rays and listening to the Penn State game live on our Droid phone via a local Wilkes–Barre Pa. radio station. We went to eat at Sticky Fingers a small BBQ restaurant chain we 1st went to in Chattanooga Tn. last year ( they have a great Memphis style dry rub) and  Golden Coral. We left Myrtle Beach on Tuesday the 26th and headed south to Savannah Ga. I decided to take US17 opposed to I95 and except for a few stretches with a lot of traffic lights, it was a good choice. As we left Myrtle Beach we noticed gas prices as low as $2.51 and as we traveled prices ranged up to $2.82. We arrived at Skidaway state park near Savannah Ga. to record tying temps and the humidity was right up there. We have spent time wandering around the historic district and the river front area. We also went to eat at The Lady and Sons which is Paula Deens restaurant. The food was excellent. The state parks in Ga. usually celebrate Halloween with events and trick or treating for the kids from the surrounding area and those in the park. We picked up some bags of candy the other day so we thought we were prepared. When we go home today there was a note on our door to leave our light on outside if we were accepting trick or treaters   and that they have 200 kids signed up to participate. Wow. I think we need to run into town tomorrow to get some more candy. Sunday we’ll pack up and head down to Daytona Beach Fl
