Happy Birthday, Nancy!!!
Today, we did our power walk and then decided to go visit another one of South Carolina’s State Parks – Little Pee Dee State Park. It is only about 70 miles from our house, but we’ve never been there. Our research indicated the park has a lake and a campground with water and electric hook-ups. We wanted to check it out for future camping and kayaking possibilities. The fact that it was 98 degrees today was a good reason to drive in our air conditioned Tahoe and just relax!!
The campground is rustic and in the trees…nice. There are about 80 sites: half water and electric, half just water. The cost is $17.00 for W&E and $13.00 water only.
The small lake, Lake Norton, was very shallow and loaded with Lilli-pads and grasses. We have not had much rain in the past month and the water levels were way down. Very little water flowing over Lake Norton Dam!!
All in all, a nice state park, but not as nice as Cheraw SP, Huntington Beach SP or Myrtle Beach SP. For us, we would drive an extra hour and go to Cheraw:o)))
We took a different route home. We came across route 9 to the north. I have wanted to check out a boat landing area on the Waccamaw River for some time.
We found very low water levels here as well. But I do think when the levels get back up, this could be a nice spot to float the Sea Eagle!!
We got home and had a very early dinner since we had skipped lunch and just filled up on cool water. We had a great summer dinner…baked potato, corn on the cob, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden and fruited jello salad. It really hit the spot.
Great way to spend a VERY hot summer day!!
