Heading North

We headed north from Orlando, arriving in Newark, Delaware on Friday for our next event.



Our first day was a perfect travel day, light traffic, gorgeous weather and great conversations. We had errands today, so we only had a little over 200 miles to Brunswick, Georgia at a Best Western. 


We had 2 Queen beds since that was the best deal, so we had our own beds and the TV was humongous The room was clean and they were accommodating with early check in and immediately sending maintenance to fix air conditioner, but the front desk was ready to move us if it wasn’t a quick fix. The switch was just jammed but he cleared it and we were good to go. Our next days drive was supposed to take us to Lumberton, North Carolina at a Country Inn with just under 300 miles. I-95 through South Carolina is so bumpy and wavy which made for a rough ride to begin with but then when we arrived it went sour fast. The area was not the best but then when we went to check in, she was not going to honor our rate through Hotels.com where we made our reservation, so we canceled and moved on. We drove another hour to Dunn, North Carolina at a Comfort Inn and we were happy. Again, we had 2 Queen beds since that was the best deal, so we had our own beds. This room was clean and well situated which made it seem more roomy than the last one. Now this is why we do what we do…





We stayed a night at Breakers Inn on Virginia Beach, a room with a balcony and a fantabulous view, and since it’s off season we got a real deal on this apartment style room.



We had a great meal at Ocean Eddie’s Seafood Restaurant, and everything was scrumptios...


From the delicious Seafood Chowder...


To the main course meals...


 

The best part were the drinks, whoa were they strong, but oh so delightful...


Again, our stay at Dover Downs Hotel was inconvenient. We love the room, great bed, spacious and clean with a fantabulous shower, but the procedures they have in place are not customer friendly. We come in with the trailer, so we have to park it back further and all we want to do is load our suitcases onto the cart and take it to our room. We do not like leaving our stuff unattended as the bellhops constantly leave it and will allow anyone to take whatever, I tested it this time and I was able to walk away with one of our bags that had iPads and other items in it without them saying a word to me. Also when we asked for a receipt, there reply was they don’t have one because we made the reservation online. They took my credit card and ran it for essentials and payment but won’t give us a receipt…strange!

Our weekend event in Newark, Delaware went well, we have done this same event for the past four years and is one of our favorites. This year we had one helper that became very threatening with his text messages and calls prior to even being totally hired that kept us on our toes since he threatened to show up and…otherwise we had a great time.

We stayed at the Baymont near the university again, the room is small, the bed was comfy and the shower is weird, feels like you’re in a spaceship but it has great pressure. The staff is attentive, efficient and friendly. We had some terribly argumentative neighbors that chose to scream at one another several times throughout our stay. By the time we figured out where they were, we were leaving. Couples that argue that much and that loudly should realize that they should not be together. We don’t do toxic anymore, haven’t since we broke away from our families and do not ever plan to go back to those ugly ways.
