    Before Jim Crow [Beaufort]

    January 12 in the United States

    We covered a lot of ground today but most of it was wet and obscured by incessant rain. Our only stop was one of the newest parks in the system. The Reconstruction Era National Monument in Beaufort, SC. In fact, today was their grand opening. Alas, the Great Orange Haired One and his we're-not-racist cronies basically zeroed out the new monument's budget. So, nice building but no story to tell. Guess Jim Crow laws were fake history.Read more

    South Carolina

    February 18, 2017 in the United States

    Hatte in meiner Aufzählung dann wohl doch noch einen Bundesstaat vergessen. South Carolina liegt auch noch auf unserer Reise. Haben heute wieder die Küste erreicht und die Hafenstädtchen Beaufort erkundet. Über Meilen hinweg ging es nur von Inselchen zu Inselchen, bevor wir endlich den Atlantik zu Gesicht bekommen haben. Die Freude auf den Campingplatz direkt am Meer mit Sandstrand, wie angepriesen wurde, war groß. Dummerweise war im Oktober 2016 ein Hurrikan schon Gast auf diesem Campground. Leider ist der Amerikaner nicht ganz so fix, seine Webseite mal entsprechend zu aktualisieren. So standen wir nun vor verschlossenen Türen und umgekippten Palmen. Haben dennoch unweit davon ein Plätzchen gefunden. Sternenklarer Himmel und die Grillen zirpen...Read more

    Edgard took me to see dolphins. Yes, we saw them. No, they are not at the photos. But, this is a bridge over the lagoon. Middle part has beautiful steel structure and CAN RORATE to let the ships pass!
    Edgard ma zobral pozrieť delfíny. Áno, videli sme ich. Nie, niesu na fotkách. Ale, toto je most ponad záliv. Jeho stredná časť pozostáva z bielej ocelovej konštrukcie ktorá JE OTÁČAVÁ aby umožnila preplav lodí!
    Nieje to úžasné?

    Port Royal, South Carolina

    April 1, 2017 in the United States

    What can we say about Port Royal ? True question is, what can we not say?

    Departing the Atlanta area after a kind stay there with Pat, the mother of his child and dogs galore we pushed to our first stay in South Carolina.

    We stayed within my best friend during high school. John Hinkley Jr. who's not the "assassin" people recognize that name for. I hadn't seen this man physically since 1989 and he still has them pretty baby blue eyes and crass humor as we did in our youth. With a doll of a wife we shared endless stories about our young life. Many of those are best censor because we were crazy kids in high school.

    He and his wife put us up for two days and his culinary skills are bombastic after all these years. As he barbecued our first meal and wild storm blew through thanks to Mother Nature.

    John nailed the cook out as rain heaved upon us and the cats. Did I mention he's a wayward cat lover....how they appear upon his doorstep and he gives them loving with food and water? It's best I don't besmirch his rep, but yeah he's always been a sucker for pussy.

    Anyhow, he approaches me with a bargain: If I supply and he paint will you give my hugging tree some eyeballs? Of course I said yes, but only after I blew some fireballs into the air and entertained him and his wife with magic. The ladies quickly connected like long lost sisters, ball busting us at any opportunity. GOOD TIMES!!! All the way.

    Second day he took ok us for a bike ride around town filling us in on its history. Such a lovely place, but watch out for chiggers and sand fleas cause they ate Sami and I's legs like a soup kitchen.

  • Day107


    February 11, 2017 in the United States

    Before leaving Olympia, we had pinned many hopes on the over-55 community in Bluffton, South Carolina. Great shopping and interesting cities 30-45 minutes away. But we fell in love with NE Florida and the Ponte Vedra community.

    We finally made it to the Bluffton area today and are happy to report, we believe we did not make a mistake. Though the town of Bluffton was cute, it was by turns touristy and down at the heels. The over-55 community was HUGE and, we fear, prone to the same feeling of isolation we saw in the large Texas community. As brother-in-law John warned us, there was a LOT of traffic, and we couldn't even see where it was going! The nearest community on Hilton Head Island seemed either for golf lovers or tourists.

    We availed ourselves of the Whole Foods Market and got out of town as quickly as we could. We MIGHT have stopped at a nice ice cream shop to help with the trauma of it all.

    This is Gordon... After the last time I got stung by a bee and swelled up to twice my size, I am a bit sensitive about them. The last photo of the church does not show the swarm of bees near the peak of the roof. Just looking at the bees sent chills down my spine. I realize that I must have a phobia about them.

    Chow Daddy's Bluffton SC

    February 11, 2017 in the United States

    Food was good. I don't know what happened to make the photo red, the food wasn't that hot.

    Gordon had pulled pork on cheddar jalapeno cornbread. Heather had fried chicken with pimento cheese on a bun. Both came with a light and flavorful bed of fresh greens which included several tasty herbs. DANG ... they had lots of interesting craft beers on tap, but it was before noon!
