Ocean Lakes Family Campground

This year our trip to Ocean Lakes was scheduled later in the season. This time the pool was open daily instead of just on weekends. It is great to be able to grab a tube and float down the lazy river as the warm sun beats down on you. What a relaxing time this is. Better yet, all the holiday crowd has gone home now and left the pool all to ourselves.

While we were in town we hit all the normal dining spots, like Nacho Hippo, The Original Benjamin’s, Drunken Jack’s, Simply Southern Smokehouse, Eggs Up Grill, Krispy Kreme, and McAlister’s Deli. But our favorite go-to place to eat (and drink) this time was Dagwood’s Deli & Sports Bar. Everything here is delicious and the price was good too. Dagwoods had the best Philly Cheesesteak we have had in many years.

We took a day trip to Charleston, SC. Terri had been wanting to visit this place for quite some time. We went to the Angel tree and then headed to the Charleston City Market downtown.

Along the way we had a chance to stop and visit with an old friend.


While in Charleston, we took a horse-drawn carriage tour through the city. The horse pulling our wagon was a bit skittish. He would rear-up and try to outrun every other horse we came across. This was the most awesome ride ever. And I thought this history trip through town was going to be boring.

During our stay at the beach, we met Paul and Jenny. They were staying in a Landmark 5th wheel next to us. It was a pleasure to chat with Paul. He advised me of an outfit called Keep It Clean RV Detailing who would come over to wash & wax my rig for me.

After the trailer had been washed, I noticed that the fridge inside was blinking in error. I looked online for a fix and discovered that the procedure to resolve the condition involved a large magnet. I call Jim, the owner of the RV cleaning service, he said this problem happens every couple of weeks to them. He was nice enough to come right over with a big magnet and fix my problem.

The next day Paul showed up and presented me with a big magnet of my own that he had so graciously purchased at the local Harbor Freight while he was in town. What a nice guy.
