These or picture of visits to Ft Lauderdale, St Augustine, Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, Hollywood. WE looked for Tony and Jeannie in Cocoa Beach but didn't find them. They have a street named "I dream of Jennie". We learned that the show was never filmed in Florida only in California.

May 2, 2016 - Good Friends for All 3 of Us

After Georgia we headed to South Carolina to visit good friends from our days in Florida who now spend their winters in Hilton Head and their summers in the mountains of North Carolina. We got our shopping in before we got there, arriving with 7 pairs of new shoes between Buzz and I. Our rule is that you have to throw out as much as you bring in and I think we actually were able to do that. Marinell and Dan are very gracious hosts, and I felt so badly for Marinell as she was really sick. She actually spent 3 hours the next morning at...

Oct 20, 2015 - Hilton Head Island, SC

On 10/14 we traveled from Selma, NC to Hilton Head Island, SC. We have been here a week and getting ready to leave in the morning for Ocala. The weather has been really great. Linda has had several opportunities to take advantage of her personal Uber driver (that would be you know who) and visit the many shops and malls. Our significant event here was a shrimp boat tour where we were given a presentation on the process of shrimping, observing the entire process of deploying the nets, dragging them around for an hour and recovering them....

May 21, 2015 - Beaufort, SC

Today Gib and I drove over to Beaufort, SC, to see some of the beautiful homes there, and boy...was I not disappointed! There are hundreds of antebellum, or older, homes in the historic district. Only one home was open for tours, the John Mark Verdier House, and I was able to take the tour. No pictures were allowed of the interior, but they had an interesting exhibit on how the Civil War affected Beaufort in one of the rooms, so I will try to summarize that for you. Beaufort was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1520, and after changing...

Kizer Summer 2015

Nov 13, 2014 - Hilton Head Island, SC

11/13 - 11/18/2014 11/13/14 (Thursday) We pulled out of James Island Park CG at 11 am, dropped of the rental car at Enterprise, lunched at the Early Bird Diner and drove the 100+ miles to Hilton Head Island, SC. On the way to Hilton Head Island, we again stopped at the Carolina Cider Company (we remember stopping there when we were here 5 years ago) and purchased a bottle of peach and muscadine (grape) cider. The peach was great. I would pass up on the muscadine…tasted like fermented grape juice. We arrived at the Hilton Head Harbor RV...

Apr 12, 2014 - Day 20

Sorry I have been MIA for a little while guys! But I have a bunch to tell you! I'm still in Hilton Head for right now! I kind of ran out of money and had to get a job! Lucky for me, I found a job really quick at a bar/restaurant by the beach called the Big Bamboo! I have been working there a week today! I am also working a double today so I am on my break right now! I absolutely love it! The people are a lot of fun and I fit it perfectly with everyone there! On my first day (I was just training) the manager handed me $20 for my shift... but...

The Honest Gypsy

Mar 31, 2014 - Day 8

I woke up around 9, said goodbye to Joe and headed towards Hilton Head! I was craving Buffalo Wild Wings (big surprise there) and so I went to the one in Beaufort! I talked to the bartender and a really nice man sitting next to me at the bar and they gave me the "D-L" of what I needed to know about the area. The man was from Kentucky and informed me that Savannah is pretty much the murder capital of the world! So, luckily I knew not to go down there alone! While at Bdubs, I messaged a few people on couchsurfing.org! A girl names Ali...

Oct 14, 2013 - Hilton Head

While in Savannah, we took a day trip up to Hilton Head, a Lowcountry resort town located on an island across the border in South Carolina. The island gets its name from Captain William Hilton. In 1663, Captain Hilton identified a headland near the entrance to Port Royal Sound, which he named "Hilton's Head" after himself. The island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and is a popular vacation destination. Everything is upscale here. Approximately 70% of the island, including most of the tourist areas, is located...

Jun 2, 2013 - Hilton Head Island, Sunday

As we were returning to the campground this morning after breakfast, we saw this copperhead snake that had just had the tip of its tail hit by a car. It's only the second copperhead I've ever seen, so I snapped the shot. I checked our gator lake twice today, but no gator sightings. We also drove to several lagoons that are known gator spots, but no luck there, either. Maybe they take Sundays off? We drove over to the Sea Pines community, which was the original community on the Island. The first house there was built out of seashells (see...

Jun 1, 2013 - Hilton Head Island, SC

Lesson #3: When in strange lands, always watch where you're going. After I posted yesterday's entry, we went for an evening walk through the Fayetteville campground. I came upon the snake first. Bill was looking elsewhere and nearly stepped on it (it wasn't moving, except for its tongue). It was over 4 feet long, but it startled me enough to shout out a loud profanity (I am a great screamer, as many snakes, gators, spiders, and hairy-tailed rodents already know). So, even though it wasn't poisonous, I guess you could say that I saved Bill's...

Apr 2, 2013 - And onward we go

We are moving northward-planning to arrive in Charleston, SC on Thursday night where we will rent a car and drive to Jacksonville for Larry's dad's service on Saturday, then back to the boat on Sunday. Today I'll catch-up with a couple of places where we have just been. On Easter Sunday, we stopped in one of our favorite spots-one that is WAY off the beaten path: Kilkenny Creek, GA. The "marina" is really a dock at a fish camp on a middle sized creek off the ICW, but the setting is absolutely gorgeous. Looking up Kilkenny Creek on the web,...
