So many sites caught my eye, starting with the seagrass basket stands along the roadway and ending with the neon and buffet-laden countdown to Myrtle Beach. We'd been in the car for about 3 hours at that point, so I was a little punchy as we took in the enormous crab buffets, dinosaur-adorned putt putt places, Girls Girls Girls nightclubs, and more. What beach? Who needs a beach? All our inventory is $5.99 or less (yes, but what do you sell??).
I love bonding with B, and being myself with him as I start to make snarky buffet-related comments. We can be "Slightly North of Broad Street" (Charleston restaurant-speak for "snobs") at times, but today it was just simple fun.
Highlights from the Road: the steak place called Thoroughbreds (what's your meat, again?); the 2:30 buffet traffic; the amazing resemblance to Pigeon Forge (everyone needs mountains and beaches, sweetie!)
B's Highlights: the Dixie Stampede; laughing at the people who clearly had no idea there was a beach 2 miles to the east (and groaning at those that did-- don't go shirtless walking along the beltway!)
