We noticed that story.  Now if Trump can stop being an @rse over tarrif's...

 

Well yesterday we left Surfside, and headed to Savannah, we stopped of at Hilton Head, but in all honesty some of the rain on the journey made Spa look dry.  At one point I could not see the road at all - there were two fire engines waiting parked in the central reservation to collect victims and the wipers were flat out and the water was not coming off the screen enough.  Even then I still had cars overtaking me - some of them black with no lights.  We are now in Georgia - but only about 4 miles from South Carolina,  I never really realised how close Savannah was to South Carolina, I guess this is the main part of the road trip although the car gets a day off today.  We have travelled now about 1800 miles in two weeks, thats around the same as two months of winter driving in the UK.

 

So since last Saturday, we have been pottering around, Myrtle Beach - and surrounding areas's.  I think we spent most of the days on a boat of one type or another.

 

First though, when we visited Surfside two years ago, the Pier was full length, Storm Andrew came through and two piers were damaged the one at the place we were staying was one, the place we used to stay was nearly destroyed, but strangely two piers either side of these were ok.  But if anyone ever doubts the power of mother nature - you just have to look as the size of the wood and its thinkness and the fact is just snapped it like a match.  About 30 feet of the Pier went in that storm.

We went on a Jet Boat Dolphin spotting, this thing has two massive 1500hp CAT Turbo Diesel Engines.  So it can make it to the Atlantic in good time.  The Atlantic was as calm as I had ever seen it.

On another day we went to Fort Sumpter, which is where the first shot was fired in the Civil War and I guess were modern America was formed.

Then another day and another ferry to Bald Head Island.  This time its passenger only so the car got to stay on the main land.  We ended up walking up a lighthouse.

And Yesterday as the Sun came up on the last morning in Surfside.  And soon after the rain and Thunder storms turned up.

So now we are in Savannah, we will be taking a bit of a look around.  We did come here I think in 2007 when we drove from Savannah to San Diego.  So it will be interesting to see how it has changed.  Its much quieter than I expected.  We are staying about a mile from the main river and until yesterday when the lady who owns the Guest house explained - I never realised when we look over the river we will be looking at South Carolina.  Only 5 days left before we fly back.

 

Yesterday I saw a Red 370z Nismo V2 but it was raining so hard I could not tell much about it, a few 350z's and a couple of 370zs - but in all honesty I was glad I was in a 4x4 - I would not want to have driven a Zed in that much water.

Interesting find on the Savannah streets today.   No US Plates on it at all.

Checked out the Reg on the DVLA - seems things have changed since it was last in the UK.  MOT only ran out last year.

If you cant explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
