Today we drove south and then walked along the coastal road. There was way too much traffic and city life for us rural travelers, and unfortunately it was very cloudy so seeing the beach was not as nice without the sun. BUT we had the fabulous fortune of staying with a friend of one if Mary Kay's daughters. She met us along the way and brought the managing editor of the local paper, who was just delightful and spent some time taking photos and video and talking to us as we walked around the harbor area. She plans to feature us in an article in the Wed paper. We'll post the link on Wed. After a quick stop at Starbucks we went back to our hosts, Muri and Tim, who prepared a fabulous shrimp boil and shrimp and grits. It was a delicious meal and a most enjoyable evening visiting with them, meeting their 2 sons and petting their 2 labs. We thank them so much for their hospitality.
