Roadtrip! Today my Mom and I will drive to Myrtle Beach to visit my aunt and uncle.
Some relative information. My aunt and uncle aren’t really as such. My aunt baby sat my mother many, many a year ago. They became friends and over time, she became “family”. I call her An-Annie which is like Aunt Annie – but not.
On with the trip! Mapquest said 4 hours while the GPS said 3.5. I like the GPS – obviously more accommodating. I don’t really know how long it actually took since we stopped for gas, pee-pee stops and lunch.
Let me bitch (what else is new?) about the drive. It was very scenic. No problem. BUT we encountered traffic. Miles of 1 lane. Construction? Nope. Picking up trash. The ratio of workers to blocked lanes was annoyingly low. UGH! How many miles do you have to block off for 5 workers. Yes, miles, not feet.
Once at my aunt’s we settled in for the evening. After dinner my mom napped, and my aunt and I went to Belk to visit my working cousin, Andrea. My aunt showed me some highlights of her immediate area. It was just a laid back evening of hanging out and socializing.
My aunt’s condo is lakeside. The lake, which is just steps from her front door, is full of fish, turtles, otters, a swan, ducks and geese! I haven’t seen any otters yet but I can mark the rest of the list as done.
