Murrells Inlet, SC
Huntington Beach State Park site #119

Since we had spent quite some time walking at Brookgreen Gardens on Sunday, I thought that Monday would have been a day to relax but we stayed busy.  Gin started the day by saying that we needed to spend some money so we went to Camping World near Myrtle Beach.  We had made a list a few days before so it was planned and needed.  It was a nice day so we went for a bike ride and geocaching.  As I pedaled across the causeway, I glanced to my right and saw an alligator just a few feet from me basking in the sunshine.  There is a wonderful 6-8 feet wide paved bike path as you enter the state park.  We rode for about 9 miles.  If that wasn’t enough exercise, we hiked the nature trail about 3 miles round trip.  We were looking for a cache that we missed last year when the battery died just as we got close to it.  We found it and the beautiful view of the ocean from the viewing platform.  We walked some more so we were sore.

So Tuesday was a restful day for us.  We still went for a bike ride and found another cache but not that far.  Not much walking involved either.  We started an afternoon campfire and enjoyed relaxing there until dusk.  Another raccoon awakened from his perch in a nearby tree.  It was another day of reviving the body and rejuvenating the soul.
