Driving Home

Today we left Grandma's house for our drive home.

When we woke up this morning, we had three little friends in Grandma's yard. I am sure she will be thrilled to see the little ones!

They are adorable.

They were there for a long time

They were eating the leaves from the trees. I think they already ate all of Grandma's plants they liked.

Time to pack up the car and get on the road!

For no reason we could figure out, we were at an almost complete stop for 5 miles. We would get up to 7 miles an hour, then stop, then maybe 10, then stop.   Then right after the King's Dominion exit, everyone went back up to speed.

Maybe this is normal?

James River Bridge.

This National Park is in North Carolina.
I thought this morning we would go to Cape Hatteras.  Well, after sitting in traffic, I remembered it is Friday in High Summer.  So we just found Moores Creek.  It was a fair bit out of the way.

Working on his badge.  There was another family at the park, the four children were sprawled on the floor in the exhibit area.  We were not impressed. The visitor's center exhibit area was very small.

The Ranger had him pick out the patch he wanted and gave him his badge.

This is not a National Park I think we are ever going to come back to. We learned that some of the first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired.

Some fun facts

When we finally got to Myrtle Beach, it was pouring. Thunder and lightening!  Traffic does not move in South Carolina in the rain.

We did finally make it home.  All is well.
