Getting Closer to Home

Yesterday was another wonderful day with Aunt Gloria and Les.  She and I went down to the Courthouse to take coffee for the NARFE (National Association of Retired Federal Employees) monthly meeting.  I guess she does that every month.  She wasn't going to stay for the meeting since Lee and I were visiting.  When we finished there she and I went downtown and looked in some of the shops and then left and went to have a cup of coffee.  We had a wonderful time just talking and continuing getting to know each other.  Les finally called to see where we were because he and Lee were hungry and ready for lunch.  We went home and picked them up and went to Pizza Hut for the lunch buffet.  When we got back to her house we emptied the ice trays with the lemon juice and put them in a Ziploc bag.  I took them to the 5th wheel and put them in the freezer.  We visited for a while and I left to go back to the 5th wheel because I was fixing chicken pot pie for dinner.  We had the chicken pot pie, corn, biscuits and lots of good conversation.

We visited for a while and then said goodnight.  They went home and I did the majority of the travel preparations.  I had only a few left for this morning.  We  left their house at 9:00 this morning.  I had to get one last picture of Lee, Aunt Gloria and Les.

Our destination was Hardeeville RV in Hardeeville, SC.  It is a Passport America park.  I had seen the Pink Pig restaurant on the internet and it had been featured on the Food Network.  I told Lee we would have a late lunch there and that would be our meal for the day.  We didn't get to the RV park until 2:30 and they close at 3:00.  When we checked in at the RV park we asked about the restaurant and he was the one that told us they would be closing at 3:00.  He said it was his Mother and Brother's restaurant and if we wanted to place an order to go he would go pick it up for us.  We gave him the money for the food and went to our site.  Before we knew it he was back with our food.  We got a BBQ plate and 1/2 rack of ribs plate.  They both came with Brunswick stew, slaw and roll.  It was great.  We ate and after that we sat outside and read for awhile.  We will be heading out in the morning to Huntington Beach State Park to have dinner with Bill and Nancy Mills.  We are really looking forward to seeing them.  Thanks for traveling with us.
