Miles: 612 (!)
We knew we had a LOT of miles to go today from BlueBell, PA to Pawley’s Island, SC. Fortunately, traffic was light because most folks were already at their Labor Day destination.
No pics today – I didn’t think you would want to see the back of Rich/Jack’s heads.
We drove through 6 states today: PA, DE, MD, VA, NC and SC. It felt like it. We finally arrived at Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort around 7pm and checked into our condo. This place is a HUGE complex of condos, houses and hotel rooms right on the ocean. We really wanted an oceanfront condo, but they were booked solid for tonight. So, we settled for a “scenic” 2br/2ba just for tonight. We are going to move into an oceanfront unit tomorrow for 2 more nights – a pain, but hopefully worth it for the ocean view.
Our place is even better than expected. It is quite large with 2 br, 2 ba, living room and kitchen. It also has a great screened in porch AND a washer/dryer. So much better than us getting 2 hotel rooms. This way we have a living room/porch area in which to relax together instead of being stuck in a hotel room. We are set city.
The decision for dinner is quick and unanimous – take out pizza and beer. We just want to chill out in our space. I volunteer to go get pizza and hit up the Piggly Wiggly for beer/coke. When I return to the room the boys already have the tv on with a movie running – “No Country for Old Men.” Great. We completely veg and enjoy every minute.
We have a tee time at 9:10 in the morning (50% chance of thunderstorms. . .) so it is an early night.
