6 STATES, 9 DAYS

Day 6

Well, like I had said before, we were only about 5 minutes from the border of South Carolina. We decided that we would take it easy in the morning, no rush. We crossed the border at 12:15 pm. Since it was about lunch time, and the kids were getting sick of sandwiches, we headed in to town to get some pizza. We stopped at a little Italian restaurant, in South Carolina, hmmm, ok! Maybe they were on the witness protection program or something. Seemed odd. But it was a great little place nevertheless. Funny story there was after we were finished eating we proceed to pay. Wouldn't you know it...they don't take plastic. What, where are we, what year is it? Doesn't everyone take plastic? Guess not in these small towns, only checks and cash. So we had to leave Jason there while we went back to find an ATM machine, somewhere in this little town. Load the gang up, poor Jay, I'm sure he made good conversation. So finally back to pick him up, and then on the road again.


Our plans were to stay at the Devil's Fork State Park. It was beautiful. The campsites were nice and clean, and they each had their own sandbox for the kids. Awesome! At the bottom of the mountain range was a huge lake, this is where we spent our entire day. Some of the locals said that the lake was down 25', that is a lot of water. Lots of fish to catch too, but you needed a license and we were only there for a few hours. The kids swam, built sand castles, wrote in the sand and played monster trucks. Not much of an eventful day compared to the others so far, but just as fun. It started to get dark, so we packed up our beach supplies and headed back for showers and dinner. The kids were pooped that day, so right after dinner, they were out for the night! While the guys were cooking, I went for a walk in the dark. I wondered off to the beach area just to admire the starlit sky, it was soo amazing. There were no lights to block the view. When I returned, the guys went on their own walk, this time to look for bugs and stuff. Funny thing is that while they were flipping rocks, they found, more than one, black widow spider. Not so cool, thinking that the kids were playing with the same rocks on the beach just earlier. They came back with some cool pics though and now time to relax then hit the sheets. We have a pretty long day ahead of us!!!
