THURSDAY 7/8

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Torsdag 8 juli 13:22

So here we are again, this is day four of our trip and Mom has not helped me tell my story until now but to her defense, she has been driving a lot. We left on Monday and the first day we drove 506miles (ca800km) because she said we had already seen everything and wanted to get away from the upcoming bad storm 

   

state road 95 is pretty boring but it is the fastest way to go. First state after Florida is Georgia 

 

next is South Carolina where we made a quick rest stop at the welcome center



On the border to North Carolina is a tourist trap called South of the border, and Mom thought it'll be a good place to camp out the first night. Unfortunately, the campsite only allowed big RVs and no tent or little SUVs.......... What's up with that?

 


Mom remembers stopping here the first time she drove to Florida in the eighties and that time there were so many activities shops and lots of people. The only way to describe this place now is by saying dump dump dump


   

we walked around and took a few pictures before we went back on 95 continuing a few more miles until we found a good place to sleep which ended up being at a hotel parking lot. Not ideal but it was getting late and Mom hates driving in the dark.

   


24-hour Hot Tamales ??? Mom thought it was a place with light-dressed ladies dancing but that was wrong. It's a Mexican dish made from corn..........haha

 


we woke up early and continued North on 95 through the next state which is Virginia


 


somewhere in the middle of the state, Mom decided she had enough of 95 and got off an exit to head towards the Atlantic ocean. I asked if she had any particular place in mind, but I think she just wanted a change of pace.

The second night we slept at a church parking and there was a big field for me to run but was cut short when Mom saw a deer family gracing. It's super cozy in our little home


we are a little further on the road than this, but this is all for now. Mom said there's a great surprise for me in a day or two??? I can't wait

We both had the best night's sleep and woke up early to a very foggy and damp morning. After coffee (for Mom) we went for a walk in the quiet woods. Mom decided to stay here one more night to rest it's a very rustic place but it's quiet and dark at n...

We left the hotel around 11 am and continued North on route 1 following Maines coastline, many small villages start to look much the same but New Caste stuck out not only because there was a 24-hour rest stop nearby. My Mom had just stopped so both o...

 Good morning, last night the weatherman on the radio kept warning that we should expect severe storms and to stay off the roads, so Mom started to look for a motel to get inside. Little did we know that where we are now is more expensive than any ot...

After Washington DC, we continued to Gettysburg a small town in Pennsylvania where there's a lot of history.  Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious ...
