The rain continued this morning while Jay emptied the tanks and I held the umbrella. We wanted to hang out for a bit to avoid post-Labor Day traffic so after leaving the campground, we stopped at a place called Nostalgia City and Museum. This store had lots of retro goodies, specializing in metal signs, and a huge knife collection, We browsed for about an hour and when we left, the rain had stopped!
Myrtle Beach was only slightly more active that Virginia Beach, After strolling for a bit, we stopped at a bar called Mako’s for onion rings and a yummy frozen drink. On the way out of town, we stumbled upon North Myrtle Beach and here was all of the action! This area is home to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade, as well as a ton of shops, eateries and beach bars. We parked Lady T on a side street and walked around for about an hour before hopping back on the road towards Charleston, SC.
It was early evening when we arrived in Charleston and there was a lot of activity in the streets. We selected Waterfront Park Pier as our starting point and figured we could walk the surrounding area after taking some pictures.
Waterfront Park offers great views of the Cooper River and Fort Sumter is about a mile out from Charleston Harbor. The pier has several swinging benches that visitors can relax in and we did just that as the sun went down over the water. After a bit, we began walking and ended up the French Quarter. This area is home to many historic buildings and upscale restaurants. There were also a ton of sweet shops! We stopped in the Moon Pie General Store and visited a few other places before heading back to Lady T.
It was almost about time for a Thai food fix and we got lucky on the way to the Walmart in Charleston. The GPS guided us to the wrong side of the road so had to pull into a small strip mall parking lot. And there, on the corner, was a place called “Pick Thai”…don’t mind of we do! Jay ordered Chicken Pad Thai and I had delicious Pad See Ew with vegetarian spring rolls…YUM!
Tomorrow, we will be heading down to Georgia and the beautiful Tybee Island. Stay with us for more southern fun!
