Parris Island, South Carolina

We left the very pretty RV park at Kings Bay Submarine base yesterday around 0945. I'd go back and stay here!  Our site had a view of the lake and the location on the base was quiet.  Out the back window was the forest

Heading north on I-95 we enjoyed the scenery as we drove over various waterways.  Still it was an interstate and soon we were both yawning.  Stopped for lunch just before the welcome center in South Carolina.  What was really neat was the the entrance to the state.  It was like driving through the gates of a southern plantation.

We are set up at an 18 site campground on Parris Island....you know, where they train young people to become Marines.  Just had a flock of them jog by in 73 degree heat with 94% humidity.  I'm just glad I don't have to do it!  We have full hookups and the free wi-fi is fast!

We back onto a marsh though we can't see it for the trees and down the street we have a beach.  We'll have to get out and explore!  The base is self contained and if we wanted to we could just stay put.  Commissary, fast food restaurants and beauty....but we want to see more of the low country.  Maybe even find some plantation homes
