Forced March on Memorial Day

It was warmer on Memorial Day. I woke up to the alarm on my cell phone (it normally goes off every weekday and I forgot to turn it off).

A couple of cups of coffee, a shave and shower and I was ready to go! It was time for another mystery hike. This time, Carla and Whiskey went along, too!

Sidebar: Carla's allergies didn't allow her to go on the swampy Congaree walk.

So, we headed out to the Sesquicentennial State park. The park features a 30 acre lake, six miles of bicycle trails and a two mile walking trail.

They have camping, fishing, boat, canoe, paddle boat and kayak rentals but no swimming. I'll let the pictures tell the story...

Whiskey and I were both getting tired and Carla's allergies were kicking in about 3/4 of the way around the lake. There were flies again, but this time a few mosquitoes tossed in as well.

Just before we got back, a light rain started to fall. It was refreshing, rather than annoying.

While Jake took a few pictures for me, I made a quick pit stop at the restroom and Carla gave Whiskey some water at the car. Then we headed back home.

We stopped for some Popeye's Chicken, biscuits and red beans and rice. They also insisted on stopping at the book store as I had mentioned I was out of books.

Finally, we were home again. We ate the chicken, biscuits and read beans and rice for lunch.

I did a load of laundry before repacking my suitcase. Whiskey and I took a nap (we were both tuckered out!) while Jake and Carla did Jake and Carla things.

Jake made coney dogs for dinner and we ate them with the last of the leftover potato salad. Excellent dinner (and the only coney dogs you can get in SC).

We watched a World War II movie in honor of Memorial Day. We wanted a war where America won and, sadly, that was basically the last one.

 Despite the nap, I was still beat and went to bed early.
