Huntington Beach State Park… Day 7

Sunday 11/3/2013

Huntington Beach State Park

Murrells Inlet, SC

Today, Sunday, 11/3, we said our goodbyes to five couples.  John & Ginny, Jim & Dee, Howard & Linda, Hank & Selene, and Jim & Judy.  Kris left too, while Ray stayed one more night, but we bid her farewell the night before.

Before their departure, Howard & Linda weighed Jim & Dee’s and Jim & Judy’s rigs.  We gathered in the morning…

and soon they were ready to head over to the “weigh site” to get weighed.

Some of us headed over to watch.

Jim & Judy were first after stopping at the dump station.

After the weighing process was finished, we said our “see ya laters” to all three couples.  Jim & Dee and Jim & Judy were on their way out, and Howard & Linda were going back to their site to pack up and leave.  Terri and I also bid farewell to John & Ginny and Hank & Selene a little later in the day.

Shortly after noon Terri and I took a walk on the beach.

It was a beautiful day at the beach.

Later, Paul & Marti, George & Laurie, and Terri & I went to a local Chinese buffet for dinner.

The food was delicious and,  of course, I was stuffed when we walked out of there.  But then, I don’t think any of us left hungry!

On the way back home we stopped for gas.

It certainly was nice to see the price below $3.00!

We finished out the evening with one last campfire.

Tomorrow is a travel day for Paul & Marti and Terri & I.  We’ll be heading back to the Volunteer Village at J. Strom Thurmond Lake.


  1. We haven't eaten since we left :-) Well, we've cut way back Good times!

  2. Love all the new BIG chair header photos from this years clan gathering. Smile everytime I see each couple in those chairs:o)) Nice wrap-up and you found the best Chinese Food in the area!!!

  3. Looks odd to see a small group around the campfire. We've eaten at that buffet several times too. It's all good.

  4. We haven't seen gas under $3 in a long time!
    It sure sounds like you all had a marvelous time at Huntington. I think that campground is one of the nicest we've ever stayed at.

  5. Great coverage of the South Carolina gathering. I think I saw gas under $3 once 5 or 6 years ago. Were you at a vintage station??

  6. We enjoyed those "low" SC gas prices too. Maybe one day we'll make it to a CC Gathering, they look like so much fun!
