Day 3 Fall 2011 trip

We were able to sleep in until the sun started to come up.  Our pets have gotten use to the routine and slept all night at the foot of our bed.  Took them for a walk and snapped this picture of the sun coming up

Spent the rest of the morning relaxing.  Diane worked on her needle point and I got the GPS programmed for the next leg of our journey.  Also did some serious reading.  Got a copy of "Absolute Power" from the library before we left.  Got it almost read all the way.  Book is a lot better than the movie that Clint Eastwood starred in.  Then it was time for lunch so we headed up to Calabash NC.  Our favorite lunch spot there is Becks.  We both had the fried shrimp lunch special. 

After lunch we crossed the road and did some window shopping at Callahan's.  This store is huge.  They have a large christmas area as well as a pretty good Dept 56 section.

Returned to the campground, took a nap, then chilled awhile, sipping wine ( Diane ) and had a few cold beers (Me).  Was able to get the  Gamecocks football game on the radio.  It was an exciting game, especially since Carolina beat Georgia and are now 2 - 0 on the year.  Tomorrow we head up to Mt. Airy NC for a one night stop over and then Monday we continue on to the Shenadoan Valley area of Virginia.  Our stop over is at Mayberry Campground and they have cable so I'm looking forward to watching the NASCAR race at Richmond.  This is the last race before the Chase starts.  This race will determine the 12 drivers who will compete for the Sprint Cup Championship.

Tomorrow is the 10 year anniversary of 9-11.  We will never forget!
