Greetings From Myrtle Beach, SC

Every year, during our winter speaking circuit, we make a point of staying at Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach, SC. This year is no exception. We are in a paved, pull-through campsite on the oceanfront. It has 50-amp electric, water, sewer, cable and telephone hookup. Dial-up internet access is available through the telephone connection, free wi-fi is provided near the campground store, and wi-fi is available at the campsite for a fee. We also have a strong cellular signal. The campground is uncrowded because it is off-season. And, because it is off-season the daily rate for our prime site is only $33.00.
Our time here is spent replenishing, repairing, resting and relaxing. We are restless travelers and rarely spend more than a few days in any campground. Ocean Lakes, however, is an exception. Even after a stay of seven to ten days, we hate to leave.


Last week, after the Florida RV Super Show ended, we drove to Titusville on the east coast of Florida. Our good friends, "Frosty" and Kay Ann Blake talked us into staying at The Great Outdoors RV Resort where they own an RV lot. Our visit with Frosty and Kay Ann included a tour of this beautiful resort, an introduction to the game of Bingo (as adults) at the resort's community building, and dinner at Vicki's favorite local restaurant, Dixie Crossroads. During the summer months, Frosty and Kay Ann live and work at another of our favorite campgrounds, Cherry Hills RV Park in College Park, MD, just outside of Washington DC. The folks at Cherry Hills specialize in helping RVers get the most out of their visit to our nation's capitol.
