The weather forecast for today was highs in the mid 70s and Friday it is going to be a high of 53. Brrrrrrr. Of course. it is always relative when you talk about weather and Gerry's cousin Joanne in the Cleveland, OH area would be happy with these temps. They are calling for temps down to the low 30s in a couple days, but we can handle that fine in the motor home. I'm glad we aren't in the Cleveland area with this weather forecast and that our home has wheels.
Our destination was lunch at a seafood restaurant about 15 miles from here on the way to Edisto Island. They have a short time period for lunch and we didn't want to hurry our lunch so we continued on to Edisto Island. We drove through Edisto Island State Park to look at the campground. The campground off the beach had some nice large sites that we could fit into nicely. They are heavily wooded right along a marsh area. The sites on the Atlantic Ocean aren't as nice, but they did have a number there also that were large enough for us.
The no-see-ums were terrible on the ocean side and they were chewing us up big time. Once the tide goes out in the marshes, the no-see-ums come looking for food and that meant us. I rate them up there with ticks and mosquitos as being the most hated insects. That is one nice thing about Tucson, they don't have 2 of the three above pests and very few mosquitos. Love it!
I tried out the new smartphone using my Geocaching.com app and found out there were about 40 geocaches in that small area. We looked for one and weren't able to find it, but when I got back to the motor home I found that we were right on top of the cache. Now we have to go back and find some of them.
We stopped at Captain Jimmy Bell's seafood restaurant on the way back and found out they didn't open until 5:00PM and it was only 4:30PM when we arrived in their vacant parking lot. Oh Oh! We decided to wait until they opened and sat on a bench in front of the restaurant.
Gerry had a crab platter and since the only fish they had was flounder and I had that yesterday, I ordered the closet thing to a fish that I could find. The hamburger was very tasty and the vegetable salad was great. Gerry enjoyed her meal and said she would order it again if we return to the restaurant. The waitress was very friendly and talked about her family and their life down in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. We enjoyed the food and the attention we received from the three of them. Highly recommended if you are in the area.
The men's room had an interesting sign on the wall pointing toward the urinal. I tried to get a picture of the sign and urinal but wasn't able to fit it all in. So, here is the sign.
I don't have any idea what all this was about, but thought it was interesting. I will tell you that the sign in the urinal was a red target. Let your imagination fill in the details.
Edisto Beach is quite long with a number of vacation homes for rent. It seemed that every house on the beach was for sale or rent. There weren't a lot of businesses on the Island so I imagine everyone brought in their own food, drinks and entertainment.
That was our day, how was yours?
