Cary in North Carolina

sunny 30 °C

Today I left the picturesque Savannah for Cary, North Carolina. I stopped for lunch at Charleston in South Carolina. Charleston is known as the ‘holy city’ due to the prominence of churches on the low-rise cityscape, and is best known for the place where the Civil War began.

While I was in Charleston, I walked down Bay Street to the Charleston City Market, a few blocks of indoor markets. I then walked along King Street and had a tasty wrap for lunch. Before heading back to the bus, I wandered around Marion Square which had some nice art stalls.

On the bus to Cary, I watched The Wedding Crashers for the first time; it was pretty good, but not as funny as I expected. My rest stop was at South of the Border, a roadside attraction named because of its location south of North Carolina. The attraction is enormous, featuring not only restaurants, petrol stations and a motel, but also a small amusement park, shopping and fireworks, however, most of them were surprisingly mostly empty and closed – the whole area was a ghost town. Today, most travellers visit the gigantic gift shop, full of craptastic junk. It was hilarious some of the trash I found in that shop.

After a couple more hours of driving, I was in Cary, North Carolina which borders on Raleigh and was my rest stop for the night. I had a buffet dinner at nearby Golden Corral which was absolutely delicious and very filling!

Tomorrow is the capital - Washington, DC!
