Our Disney Vacation 2014 {travel days}

Friday February 14, 2014

Today was check-out day! :0(

What a great vacation-one of the best! Two very sad people started driving around 9:00, and drove all day, stopping only for gas and lunch. We were not in a big hurry to head back to the cold weather we had left behind at home. Somewhere around South Carolina, we started to see the effects of the ice storm we had heard about. There were tree limbs down near the highway, but nothing to hinder our driving.

Happy Valentine's Day!!! <3

It was Valentine's Day, and we were hoping to find a good hotel and restaurant tonight. We started talking about where we might stop for the night. We considered Florence, since that was where we stopped the first night on our way down. I was looking at the map and Myrtle Beach didn't look that far off the beaten path and since we had never been there before we thought, why not?......

Long story short and a huge traffic jam later, it definitely was off the beaten path! We decided to at least have dinner there and when we drove past a Captain George's Restaurant, we both agreed-that was the place to stop! It was sooooo good! :0)
After dinner, Peter said he would like to keep driving a little farther, which we did and ended up in Wilmington, N.C. at a Holiday Inn Express. Maybe we'll get a chance to actually enjoy Myrtle Beach on a future road trip!

Saturday February 15, 2014

We woke up to a dreary, cold day. Again, uneventful, just driving, driving, and more driving. By the time we got to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, the wind was blowing very hard {the girl in the booth said up to 50 mph}........

and by the time we got to Pocomoke, it was snowing! UGH! Back to reality indeed!
We made a quick stop in Lowe's to get a few things for the carpenter who had almost completed the job at home.  We had a Texas Roadhouse gift card that we couldn't let go to waste, so we enjoyed one more dinner together before ending our trip.
Logan was away at work, but we spent the night with Lindsey and then finally arrived back home on Sunday, February 16th.


This trip came at just the right time for us. We had an awesome time and are still talking about it. We absolutely loved our resort, which I hadn't given much of a chance before we left. We were talking about going back again before we ever left and have already started making plans. :0)
