We drove the 139 miles from Pointes West and Augusta to Yemassee, South Carolina and the Oaks at Point South campground. The area is near iconic oldtown Beaufort, SC on the coast AND it's located midway between Charleston and Savanna. We like the area for it's mild weather and interesting history. Right next door to our campground is the Frampton Plantation which played a part in housing both north and southern troops during the civil war.

One day, us and the VanEmmeriks went to Beaufort for alittle touring. We walked around town some, found a couple GeoCaches, went to lunch. During lunch, Dave was looking at Trip Advisor and found out there was a neat factory nearby. With everyone in agreement, after lunch we went to find the Kazoo factory. It was a fun stop, which made us feel like children again. All of us had Kazoos when we were children. Did you know, Kazoo was invented in Georgia about 1840 and is a musical instrument NOT a toy. There are several additional items that can be added to the basic kazoo to make it louder, more sonic, sound like several instruments.

Another day we drove over to Savanna. We jumped on the Old Town Trolley for their 15 stop jaunt around town. These Orange and Green trolleys are the jump off/jump on type. We did just that, when we jumped off near Mrs. Wilkes for lunch and then walked around. Later we got back on and finished the tour.
