In late April, we left Cedar Key and headed to Buck Hall Recreation Area in McClellansville, SC to visit my sister Cathy and her husband Bruce. They live close by and we wanted to spend some time with them. We also got to see my niece, Ciara. This was our first time staying at Buck Hall and we really enjoyed our stay. I especially enjoyed the close proximity of the intercoastal waterway. It sure was a sight to see all of the boats and barges floating by!
Dan, Cathy, and I spent part of one day "mountain" biking some of the Palmetto Trail. It's a good thing I didn't bring my camera because I could not have handled taking pictures while pedaling! We went thru standing water, over stumps, roots, and small trees, pedaled through sand and pine straw all while dodging branches in our path! It was a tiring, but fun 10 mile ride.
We shared several meals with them as well and had a toast compliments of Dot and Charlie.

Unfortunately, Pete is a display made entirely of trash that was found in Shem Creek. It really opens your eyes as to what trash can do to our waterways.
We had a great time visiting Cathy and Bruce and know we will see them again soon.
From South Carolina, we headed north to our "home" base in NC.....Korky's Campground. We arrived just in time to celebrate her birthday!

We also had more birthdays to celebrate!

A few days later, it was time to celebrate Brandon's birthday. Chicken alfredo lasagna with artichokes, mushrooms, and fresh spinach! His dessert was homemade chocolate mousse with an array of ice cream!
We've also been staying quite busy with routine doctor appointments (me!), getting new glasses (Dan!) and researching and picking up supplies for a project Dan has up his sleeve :-) We've got about a week left in NC before we start our trek north. :-)
Life is good!!
