We went to Savannah earlier this week to walk around the historic area of town we enjoyed so much a couple of years ago.  The drive from Hilton Head to Savannah is very pleasant, along roads overhung with Spanish moss and along the many salt marshes.  We walked along the waterfront and down the streets of the old city through most of the many squares that make that part unique.

On Thursday, we left Hilton Head and drove to Myrtle Beach to spend some time with Brian and Susan Fraser in a condo they’ve rented there.  It has been a relaxing time.  Today, the four of us drove to Charleston, S.C. which we had heard was even a better place to visit than Savannah.  It was, indeed, very lovely with old houses lining the waterfront, narrow streets, and architecture from the Civil War.  We saw a very interesting little house for sale near the ocean but, upon discovering its asking price of $3,495,000, decided that perhaps living there was not for us after all.

Tomorrow we leave Hilton Head for the run to California.  We expect to reach somewhere near Tuscaloosa, Alabama by tomorrow night.  We expect the trip to Mountain View to take five or six days

Our first real adventure took place on Sunday when we went through the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina.  Along the southwestern edge of Great Smoky […]
