Watching the Sunrise in our sunset
For the fourth weekend in a row, it was time for another camping trip. This time, we were headed to nearby Lake Wateree State Park in South Carolina! And was it pretty...
Christmas at the Coast
Hotdogs roasting on an open fire.
Jack frost nipping through your tent.
Yule tide carols being sung by the shore.
And folks dressed in shorts and flops.
This year, we decided to do Christmas on the coast in lovely Edisto Beach State Park, South Carolina!
Hangin' at Hamilton
We were on our way (finally) to Hamilton Branch State Park! After almost two years since one of the campground hosts at Baker Creek state park suggested Hamilton Branch, we finally decided it was time to go! All I can say is we spent the whole time wondering....what the heck took us so long!?
Tales of Table Rock State Park
In many of our previous South Carolina camping adventures, we passed this massive rock formation and wondered what it was. Well, thanks to the power of Google and its all-knowingness, we discovered it was called Table Rock and that it was a state park complete with camping! Naturally, we had to check it out.
Happy 4th of July, everyone! For the holiday weekend, we headed to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area in Apex, North Carolina.
The Quarantined Couple
When social distancing measures go into effect, run to the woods!
Way back, Rose and I bought tickets to see Old Crow Medicine Show at Pisgah Brewing Company. We had never been there, or even to the area, so we decided to head out a few months early and do a scouting expedition. Other interesting sights in the area include the Blue Ridge Parkway, Catawba Falls, and Mount Mitchell: the highest peak on the east coast. What a perfect opportunity to get in some precious mountain time!
Not so hoppy easter
Easter weekend was here...time to get our camp on! While researching places to camp a few weekends ago I had stumbled upon the South Carolina State Park site that advertises specific months that certain State Parks are cheaper to camp at. "Camping Specials" if you will. It just so happened that Easter weekend it was Hickory Knob State Park and Resort that was the lucky winner. For one heck of a deal I booked us 3 days, 2 nights worth of what we thought would be woodsy, peaceful camping. However, what we got was one chaotic, packed, wet and just overall bummer of a weekend.
We finally got a puppy!
He likes pizza.
