Where I stayed
Zooland RV Park
They had a list of activities that were going to happen over the weekend that sounded like fun, but by 11am we found out otherwise. The fishing tourney didn't have a prayer of anyone catching anything over about 4"; the all-u-can-eat breakfast buffet didn't have very much food; the arts'n'crafts "class" was aimed at very young children and was held in the game room building that should have been labeled "Sauna" with no A/C and was well over 100 degrees; they also had a big sign for "large root beer floats" that had my mouth all ready to enjoy, but they turned out to be again for tiny tots in small Dixie cups
We had already decided to cut our stay from three nights to only two, but by later that afternoon, I wish that we had left after the first night. They had a group of gospel singers give a sort of concert, which should have been nice, but they had the loud speakers turned up so loudly that it hurt your ears and was made worse by the all too often off key singing! It was especially bad for us because we were parked very close to them and even with the windows closed, the A/C and the TV turned way up, we couldn't drown them out!
I don't want to sound like I'm being difficult to please and after all, we're retired, without a schedule, etc. right? But I will admit that I don't like to be out of touch because of the lack of cel service. We both have T-Mobile cel phones and the wireless card for our internet also primarily uses T-Mobile and for instance here in North Carolina, T-Mobile just about doesn't exist! We're thinking about one of us switching to Verizon, because it seems to have pretty good coverage, especially where T-Mobile doesn't. We haven't decided yet.
Driving to the coast was pretty and very green. There had been a lot of rain recently and all the corn and tobacco fields and all the many kinds of trees made for a wide variety of the color green.
