Journal Entry:
Another leisurely day. I got up late battled the flies again (and again lost). I stopped at Mrs. Wiles Boarding House for lunch (it was recommended by Let's Go USA). It was everything a Southern style meal could be. It included over 20 items including fried chicken, ochre and tomatoes, collard greens, stew, squash, sweet potatoes, and so much more. While $10 seemed a little steep for lunch it was well worth it (and the 40 minute wait). It was more than all you can eat, served family style around common tables. After lunch I waddled around historic Savannah. It's a beautiful, peaceful city that I really enjoyed.

A fairly short drive up the coast leaves me at Myrtle Beach, SC. Once again it was $1 cheaper to stay in a hotel than to camp at the local state park. The hotel while definitely a dive has A/C and is on the beach.
