Little Red Retro

Our blog is all about
life as seniors, our love of camping and so much more. It's named after our sweet little red Riverside Retro RV - our very first camper. We hope to share ideas, campground info, recipes and just thoughts and feelings. At this stage in life we are going through so many changes and we hope to share our journey and learn from others as we navigate this time in our lives.

Well We Did It Again....September Trip

Sadly we had to cancel our last two trips that we had planned due to weather and Greg's work responsibilities.  I so hate we didn't make it to Hunting Island before it was hit again by another hurricane.  It's so sad that it will be closed indefinitely.  We'll keep checking on how they're doing down there.

Finally Greg was able to break free last week and we traveled back
down to Myrtle Beach State Park.  Yes - we must really love that park.  I believe it has to be our favorite now.  We have visited there 3 times in the last year.  Its just a very relaxing beach with beautiful wildlife and woodsy surroundings.  You don't even know that you are in the middle of a busy bustling city like Myrtle Beach.  The staff is very nice and if you visit be sure to speak to Ms. Angel - she works the gate 3 days a week in the evenings.

We hope to get back to our goal of visiting different parks every month soon.  Unfortunately weather in South Carolina and surrounding states can be very volatile during hurricane season - June through November.

This is also a great beach for dogs.  Miss Lucy loves it there.  During peak months she can go on the beach after 5 PM and after Labor Day, dogs are allowed all access. She would run along side of the waves and then zoom all over the place.  There were so many awesome dogs for her to visit with and enjoy.  She loves all dogs but she doesn't quite understand that all dogs don't love her. 

For us this was a great time of the year to visit.  It wasn't quite as hot and we snagged an awesome site across from the store (20B) which enabled us to grab WIFI.  We love that area of the park and it's a short walk to the beach.  This one also included a full hook-up which is always nice and makes for an easy time when we pack up to leave.

If you like the beach and the south, this park is a must see.  Lots of wild life, shade and things to do with trails, fishing, an awesome pier and so much more.  If we could live full time at any one park this one would be on the top of our list.
