After a long and busy spring, we decided we needed to get away. Jill wanted a beach, but knew it would be difficult to talk me into it, unless she bribed with camping. So, a trip was planned to the Great Smokey Mountains for some camping, then on to the beach in South Carolina. The trip was amazingly relaxing, even though the camping was a wash due to endless rain. We made the most of it, but Daufuskie Island more than made up for some frustrating days camping.

We started out with a long road trip, with a stop in Nashville to visit the Science Museum to break up the drive. Then camping at Mile High Campground high up in the mountains near Great Smokey Mountain National Park.

We made the most of the weather that we had, but even I had just about enough of the dampness and rain when it was time to pack up and head south. We closed up a soaking wet camper and headed on to bluer skies at sea level. We had to move quickly because we needed to get groceries for four days and make it 5 hours to Bluffton, SC in time for our 3 PM water taxi ride to the island. Daufuskie doesn’t have a bridge or a ferry service, nor does it have a grocery store. This was going to be an adventure!

The island was a hit with everyone. The beach was gorgeous, the atmosphere was completely relaxing, and golf-cart only transportation was the cap to a really fun and super relaxing trip but entirely too short trip.
