We’ve only been here at J. Strom Thurmond COE since September 30th, and we’re leaving tomorrow for a week. Yep, a vacation. Not that we’ve worked so hard we need one, even with the volunteer work we’ve been doing, it feels like we’re on vacation already.
Actually, we’re going to an informal gathering with a bunch of RV friends, most of us met at some of Howard and Linda Payne's RV-Dreams rallies and have become fast friends, often meeting up on the road and following each other’s travels via blogs.
It will be a week long adventure for us, a repeat of last year’s gathering, nicknamed the “Carolina Clan”, at the Huntington Beach State Park, just south of Myrtle Beach, SC. We had such a great time last year, a bunch of us immediately reserved sites again for this year.
Huntington Beach State Park is right on the ocean, the RV sites are only a brief walk to the beautiful, white sandy beaches.
On the opposite side of the Park is a large marshland populated by many different kinds of birds, fun for viewing the birds feeding and doing all kinds of birdy things (sorry Judy).
The Intra-Coastal Waterway is nearby, too. Last year we had 13 Sea Eagles and kayaks out for a paddle. Some of us didn’t know how to steer too good.
Best of all we’re looking forward to more campfire circles…and great food!
Being right on the ocean might actually encourage me to get up early and catch a few sunrises…
Hope we don’t wear ourselves out and need to come back to our workamping “job” to rest up!
