I have had a lovely interlude. Ended up staying five days at Poinsett State Park, because of the reasonable price and perfectly fine amenities and plenty of trails – Hops and I had a hike every day and all the trails were bikeable, too, but it kept raining off and on, and I had plenty of reading to do, so I didn’t ride much. There was even a little take-a-book/leave-a-book station so I was able to leave some behind, whew! And I met up, entirely by accident, with a Sisters on the Fly camping group – they fed me dinner one night. That was nice, a little social time in my (very pleasurable) solitude.
It’s time to move on – and find a laundromat – but this has been a fine place to stay. Now, the beach!
