The plan was to ride from Charleston, down to Hunting Island State park, then to Savannah for dinner and home..The weather had other ideas.

We didn't make it far south out of Charleston before I thought a salty snack was needed to fortify us..luckily this stretch of the 17 has a few boiled peanut stands.

The ride south to Hunting Island was uneventful. Cloudy skies and kinda blustery but it didn't look too bad. We pulled into the state park, stripped off all of our gear and made our way to the beach...this was the view when we broke through the trees.

We found a picnic table and managed a few bites of our sandwiches before the heavens opened. We spent the next hour under a picnic pavilion while a latin church service and a girls running team were sharing the space.

Eventually the skies cleared and we were able to go out for a little body surfing and beach exploring.

We got back to the bike...boots full of water and the damn sheep skin seat covers that I had been drying for 3 days at home were soaked again!

Left the park..grabbed a tag..and rode home through some more rain...sure beats working.
