Splish Splash We Were Taking a Ride

We only had about 20 miles to travel since our reservations at the Charlotte Motor Speedway did not begin until Sunday and our 14 days in Myrtle Beach were over.  We made reservations at Carrollwoods Coastal Campground located in Tabor City, North Carolina adjacent to Grapefull Sisters Vineyard through our Coast to Coast membership for one night. 

Any other time we would have looked forward to this part of our plan, if not for the weather.  It rained most of the prior day and all through the night and it looked as if it would be raining most of our travel day as well.  Not looking forward to the drive but we had to find that window of opportunity to head out and get settled into our next site.

We did get a bit wet at the bottom of our bed again with this rain, Jerry will need to do more caulking once the weather clears and the temperatures are not frigid any longer.  Love it when we find things to be grateful for…

As for the drive, we found the window where we hardly had any rain.  All along the drive though we could see flooding everywhere, including at the campground which concerned us a bit and we hoped it would not rain any more.  The sites were located under some huge, tall trees and throughout the night the warnings continued, wind and even a few tornado watches.  Needless to say we did not get a good night’s sleep.

When we arrived we did check out the winery and have created another post with the review of the tasting and the campground.

On Sunday, we headed out at daybreak since they were calling for wind all the way into Charlotte beginning at 10am and they were not kidding but they actually started much sooner.  Wind gusts were at least 40 to 50 mph and steady at 20 to 25 mph.  It was a stressful drive which took us over 5 hours that should have only been about 3 hours, but we made it and the wind continued to rock us until 7pm but the great news is that work will begin in a few days and this has been the part of our journey we anticipated because now we will be rolling in the dough.  Life is GRAND!!!!!!!
