Yesterday (YESTERDAY?! I can’t believe how much ground we’ve covered) I went for a nice run by myself around Warrentown:It is a really cute small town. Cleo’s whine reminded me so much of the bones. She was a cutey and just wanted to cuddle.
Our friends house is awesome Complete with a church pew
Many porch swings
Some statue and building
Helpful reminders along the roads!
I ran past a produce stand and made sure to come back once I was showered and fed
Almond butter on whole wheat bread has been my breakfast every single day. Today it was my lunch.
I really wanted a watermelon, but they were HUGE. I only had to walk a block, but I was tired and sweaty from my run so I opted out. TB doesn’t love watermelon so I would have had to eat the entire thing myself. Instead I got a green tomato, regular tomato and two peaches:
It was soooo good. I have yet to use the green tomato and I’m not sure how that is going to happen without access to a frying pan
A couple of quick Cleo + TUG pics and then we were on our way to Myrtle Beach, SC
I was really happy to end the days of cupcakes. It was actually relieving for me not to think about wanting to eat the so badly.
We passed some interesting signs and restaurants: FATZ
Four hours later made it to our beach front hotel (Super 8).
It was nice to be able to have beds and space to bring our luggage in as usually we’re picking out our clothes on the streets and out of TBs drunk (as we did in Philly below) and bringing in only what we need to people’s houses
Beach from our doorway: It was cloud cover, but HOT. I did some hw before we left again to get some vacation victuals: dinner, liquor and taffy.
There are a TON of pancake houses in SC, but we settled on Bangkok House of Thai Food. It was maybe the best peanut sauce I’ve ever had, very peanut buttery. This dish was exactly what I had wanted. Steamed veggies, rice, pad thaish broth, peanut butter:
TB got us an appetizer of veggie rolls. He was going to order chicken wings initially. What a guy.
After dinner I did some more hw and then we made our way to Broadway, a strip of bars in Myrtle Beach and had a grand old time ending at 6AM only to get up at 9AM and drive 7 hours to Fayetteville, GA to stay with my family for a night.
Tomorrow we wake up to run. We took this morning off for a number of reasons…I made it to the breakfast buffet in time to grab us both a muffin, but no time to take a picture. We hit up the beach very briefly before leaving.
We arrived at my family’s house and shortly went to dinner at the Grind House in downtown Atlanta. They like robots and so do I.
I then stole fries and onion rings from the others to make up for the carbs I was holding back on with the lettuce wrap. This place also makes alcoholic milkshakes. I got an El Duderino: pinnacle vanilla vodka, kahlua, coffee syrup and I’m guessing soft serve ice cream. It was tasty.
And bc my family bleeds hot fudge they took us on a short driving tour of Atlanta and then right to an ice cream shop. with MORE robots!
If this trip doesn’t give me diabetes…
