SC To FL and Kelly's

Callahan, FL.

54 deg. cloudy, light rain showers, no wind.

Forecast = Overcast with a chance of a thunderstorm and rain showers. High of 68F. Winds from the NNE at 5 to 10 mph shifting to the East in the afternoon.

We got an early start yesterday morning, so it was only 9:10 when we pulled out of the New Green Acres Park. Being that we knew of a gas station/truck stop in Walterboro, we headed to it to buy me a nice big drink of that good old #2 diesel fuel. After filling me up, at the lowest price I've seen for diesel in a long time,  ($3.77 per gallon), we headed to southbound I-95 and followed it all the way down here to Florida, with only a quick "pit stop", at a rest area in Georgia. After traveling a short distance into Florida, we turned West onto Rt A1A and followed it over to Callahan. In Callahan, we turned North on US 301 and followed it up here to Kelly's Countryside RV Park.

It was 12:45 when we pulled into Kelly's so it took us 3 hours and 35 minutes to travel 190 miles and get my drink.

Jim and Linda have been stopping at Kelly's for years. In fact, one year they even spent a month here. It's a nice park with friendly people staying here, and very friendly people running the park. They have a few nice long pull-through, full hook-up sites that they save for people who are staying just a night or two, and both shaded and open back-in sites for the folks who decide to stay longer.

We'll be here one more night before heading to our destination in DeBary on Wednesday.

After getting me hooked up to the utilities, Jim took a little nap while Linda took advantage of the free wi-fi here at the park. Then for dinner, they took CLT and headed into Callahan and to the Cedar River Seafood  Restaurant,

Cedar River is a restaurant that Mr. Kelly told Jim about years ago, and Jim and Linda have been going there every time they've stayed here at Kelly's since then. They've always had very good seafood, good service and it's become kind of a tradition to go there. ; )

Did you know that on this date in 1923, Jacob Schick was granted a patent for the electric shaver?
