I left Hilton Head this morning, sad that my time with Janice ended. It was like old times last night playing a favorite card game – Spite and Malice. Do you know it?
What can I say? No friends like old friends.
Here's another photo from the 70's. Taken by my mom, who often affectionately called us silly girls. I can't imagine why.
Under stormy skies, I drove about an hour to Richmond Hill, GA to make a planned maintenance stop for the GDB. Here at Dick Gore’s.
Just some routine chores – change the generator oil, lubricate the antenna crank, and replace the AC/heat pump filter. The people here are awesome! They even offered to feed me lunch! In fact, BJ the mechanic showed me the filter, said it was in good shape and just needed cleaning. So he washed it for me. So if any of you are in need of RV service in the coastal area, give these good people a call.
I only had to wait about an hour and the time passed quickly once I discovered that Kat (pictured here) is a NASA fan. More like a space groupie, I teased.
She reeled off the names of the Mercury, Apollo, and Shuttle astronauts she has met and then shared photos of herself with Neil Armstrong, Jim Lovell, and Fred Haise (to name a few). Kat goes to Kennedy Space Center often and she gave me some good tips and websites in case I return to Titusville. I made her solemnly vow to stop at McDonald Observatory on her way to California and attend a Star Party.
The heavy rain that began while I was at the dealership stopped after lunch so I drove another hour to Brunswick, GA. After picking up few grocery items, it was still early. I stopped to browse an antique mall but the only relic I was drawn to was this old guy.
The sun appeared later so I found a nearby mall and got some walking in. You know how we are always saying it’s hard to work-out on the road? On this trip I want to try to walk at least half an hour every day.
I decided to remain for the night in the mall parking lot that adjoins this Embassy Suites hotel.
I still have no plan for this trip, but will no doubt head to some beach tomorrow.
