After arriving at the coast, we found a Starbucks to get coffee and make out hotel reservation online. Then we hit the beach. There were a handful of surfers out and a few people walking. We waded out into the water and played in the waves. A little while later, we saw a news crew on the beach and ended up getting interview (channel 2). I was not sure why, but later found out that we were swimming in Tropical Storm Andrea! I was not daunted, I'm from the mountains and there we race bikes in this stuff! Because weekends don't wait for the sun!
After dinner, I took the fam out to see the Palmetto Trail Trailhead. It was less than 1.5 yrs ago that I was here and started my trip. I couldn't help but think about another one in the future, but currently, most of the first 50 miles would be under water.
We were finally able to get some good sleep.
