South to Carolina

Well we have been beating a path south lately following the sun and staying away from freezing temps. After New Hampshire we drove down to New York state and boondocked at a Walmart near Bingingham. Next 2 days we mostly travelled to get into Virginia and explored Shenandoah National Park. Saw lots of nice autumn colors and scenic vistas. We followed the Blue Ridge Parkway down as far as Fancy Gap and stayed for several nights at a nice little mountain campground but it was getting cold and we were sick of fall and leaves so off to the coast!.

I saw online the Charleston was one of the best cities to visit in the US and the weather map said temps in the 70s and 80s so we made a beeline out of the mountains of Virginia down to the coast of South Carolina.

Charleston is indeed a beautiful city with tons of history and gorgeous beaches. We spent one splendid morning watching the sun rise at the famous Folly Beach Pier and another afternoon touring the historic downtown area by mule team in a carriage. Another day we checked out the USS Yorktown, a floating air craft carrier museum and got some nice shots of the new bridge. The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, also known as the New Cooper River Bridge

We are now travelling with the snowbird crowd, all the campgrounds are loaded with northern plates and I can see why the weather is great. Next stop is a little down the coast to Savannah, Georgia with maybe a side trip to the famous Hilton Head resort to gawk at the rich and famous.
