NC To SC and Dinner With Anna

Yemassee, SC.  Friday, November 18, 2011

40 deg. clear, N. wind @ 10 mph.

Forecast = Sunny. Cooler with highs in the upper 50s. Northeast winds 15 to 20 mph.

Got a really  s   l  o  w  Internet connection here at The Oaks at Point South RV park, so again I’m writing this using a word processor and will post it as soon as I can get a better connection. (Probably tonight or tomorrow).

It was as we left Dillon, right after a line of showers went through yesterday morning. In just a few minutes, we were back on I-95 and heading South. The drive down 95 seemed much easier than it did the day before.

When we got down to Walterboro, we pulled into a truck stop and Jim filled me up with a much needed drink of #2 diesel fuel, before continuing  on down here to Yemassee. It was almost exactly when we pulled up in front of the office, so it took us 2 hours and 50 minutes to travel 159 miles and stop for my drink.

Jim and Linda had been to this park before and knew that it would be OK for an overnight stop and a place for me to wait while they went to see Anna. It’s OK, but even with the Passport America discount, it’s still almost $28 per night to stay here.

Way overpriced in my opinion.

About , Jim and Linda took CLT, (Cute Little Truck), and headed over to Beaufort, SC., (about 27 miles from Yemassee), to meet Anna at a restaurant called Barbara Jeans. CLT says that they were in the restaurant for quite awhile, so I imagine that besides enjoying a very good meal, they enjoyed visiting with Anna and catching up on what has been happening in her life since they last saw her back in July.

It was about when they returned here to the park. Then it was TV again until bedtime.

Today, we should get back down into Florida. We’ll probably stay in Callahan, but I don’t know for sure. If you remember, there’s a park there that Jim, Linda and I like, so that’s probably where we’ll end up.

Did you know that Yemassee  takes its name from the Native American tribe of the same name, the Yamasee, which was the most important Indian ally of South Carolina until the Yamasee War of 1715? The first attack that began the Yamasee War occurred in the Yamasee town of Pocotaligo, today part of the town of Yemassee.
