VT to the Forgotten Coast

Apologies for the break.  We’ve been traveling.  Dogs – it turns out – are far more intrepid travelers than people are.  Although it seems that Routine is carved into domestic dog behavior, most dogs easily adapt to new situations.   Or at least Pepper and Radar do.  They love adventure, even if it means riding in the cab part of a Toyota Tacoma for four consecutive days, lapping water in a parking lot to the roar of interstate traffic, sleeping and eating in strange rooms, and pooping and peeing in small scrappy areas of brown grass and dirt.   The big deal here, probably the main feature, is the smells.  An encyclopedia of smells, a database of smells, a vast oral history of every dog who walked  and pooped the grounds of Best Western and Shell and ten states worth of state parks.

As for the humans: NY, PA, VA, MD, WV, TN, NC, SC, GA, FL interstate white knuckle driving.  Keep watching the semis and erratic drivers.  USA map way out of date, Map Quest ok but way too anal, deal with rain all day the second day.   Check in, check out, drive through endless landscape of chain food, clothing, gas, home and garden supply stores.  On and on and on and on.  The only beauty in the four days was the new highway that cuts through the Smoky Mountains on the way to Asheville.  But it was foggy!

On St George Island at last.  Dogs settled right in.  Walks on the white beach, sitting outside in the evening, decompressing, getting ready to get back to work.  Still in shock with the major change in weather from all that cold and snow to the 70s, but am sure I’ll get over it.
