Mark – This morning produced the first frost of the year – hopefully our last as we will be heading south from here on in. Onancock is apparently famous for two things – an elephant stampede (caused by Pres GW Bush Snr when he was showing off in a jet trying to impress a girl) and tomatoes ( pronounced the wrong way of course ).
Fell asleep in the car and woke up in the south with cotton fields on either sides. Rte 17 is in the America’s most scenic highways book, well that book is being tossed to lighten the load. We take a stop at the first visitor centre in North Carolina and meet a Dalmatian owner and a sail boat from Quebec going down the inland waterway to the Bahamas – away for a year – father and 3 kids. We thought we were being adventurous!
Buckingham– After 7 hours in the car we arrive at the beach just in time for sunset.
