Southern Comfort in South Carolina
We left Georgia to explore some of South Carolina while we had the chance. Since we did not originally plan on camping this far east, we figured we could check out what South Carolina had to offer. After a short visit to Charleston (a cool city to check out if you're ever in the area), we headed about an hour north to the Francis Marion National Forest.
Here, we stumbled upon a great campsite at Honey Hill. This site didn't have any amenities except for a picnic table and a pre-dug fire pit, but that was fine by us. Like the majority of the country during this week, we were treated with great weather. It was unseasonably warm. With the exception of one day where we were confined to our tent due to rain, the weather was some of the best we have had yet. However, one drawback to this incredible campsite was the lack of decent hiking trails close to us. There were a few short trails, but about a half mile in, you'd look around and the trail didn't continue in any distinct direction.
Overall, camping in South Carolina was like being in a groundhog-day-style reality where each day felt like the day before and no day was distinctive from the others (except for the rainy day, obviously). This wasn't a bad thing, though. We made friends, had dance parties, cooked some great meals, did yoga (and doga), Brooke practiced the ukulele, and the pups got in some quality Zs. It was nice to regroup in preparation to head north to St. Louis for the big Mardi Gras celebration.
