Huntington Beach State Park site #111
Murrell’s Inlet, SC
We had planned to spend the morning on the bikes but Smudge had other plans. She has separation anxiety and hasn’t eaten much the last couple of days. She had an upset stomach so we knew we needed to be with her instead. We decided to take her to the shore since there is a lot of hard sand there. A poodle doesn’t do good in the soft sand…gritty. She barked at a bird and stared at it.
But mostly, she barked at me to pick her up. We should have named her Velcro because she sticks to me and she looks like velcro.
She really doesn’t care for the beach like some dogs. That’s ok because I can’t imagine all that sand and salt water in her fur. I’m not sure if the tide was coming in or out, but this was a nice tidal pool flowing.
After we all had a nice stroll on the beach, we went back to camp to enjoy a lunch of delicious left-overs. Since Smudge was feeling better, Gin and I took a few minutes to ride the bikes around in the CG. This place stays pretty full. Some of the Thanksgiving crowd is already arriving. We now have neighbors on one side of us. Gin got a nice campfire going while Smudge curled up in my lap. We cooked some brats and marshmallows for supper. Don’t worry. We had our veggies for lunch.
A few folks asked about the roaster so Gin took some shots to show how we have it set up. Notice the reflection of the bikes in the freshly waxed MH.
We sit one of those disposable aluminum pans in the roaster pan so that clean up is easier. For storage, we put the lid in the styrofoam packaging that it came in. We also kept the box and reinforced it with duct tape and cut out a little spot for the handles. There is enough room in our basement to put our Baby-Q grill on top of it. We plan to take it with us when we finally hit the road.
We’ve enjoyed the wonderful weather here this week. Maybe it’ll hold up for us so we can enjoy the bikeway. Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
