We had a nice leisurely trip from Cedar Point to Cheraw State Park. We traveled the back roads except for I-74 between Whiteville, NC and Laurinburg, SC.
Old Farmhouse and Fifth Wheel
We passed through lots of small towns :o))
Wonderful Old Train Depot
We made one stop on I-74 just before it intersect with I-95.
North Carolina has a HUGE farmers market there.
There are 3 units just like the above unit.
This place is really big!!
However, there was only ONE vendor;o((
We got some new red potatoes and young spring onions...
Think there is some potato salad in my future:o))
Nancy here: What lesson you ask?!?! That's knowing that when you have half a tank of diesel in “Baby” a fill-up is not an emergency. You can still drive 500 miles or run the generator for 100 hours until you can find a LARGE gas station on a MAJOR highway!! Oh, did I mentioned we have water and electric hookups at Cheraw so we don’t have to run the generator ;o))
Today we both slept in and after our coffee decided to take a leisurely stroll through the State Park. That turned into a wonderful 5 1/2 mile walk.
We took the trail and boardwalk around Lake Juniper .
Lake Juniper from the Spillway Bridge
We headed past the golf course.
Yes, this State Park has its own golf course;o))
Then headed to the nesting area of the endangered
Red Cockaded Woodpecker.
(click on any photo to enlarge)
We spent some time trying to spot one,
but all we foundwere nesting holes ;o((
Maybe another day!!
While we didn't see any woodpeckers,
we did stumble upon some old camping facilities.
Not sure what this pit was for?!?!
Those wood beams are REALLY old!!
