Just a quick word about breakfast - We ate in a really small restaurant in Rock Hill called The Yolk. We found it through Yelp. It's strictly a breakfast and lunch place, but by its name you can guess its specialty is breakfast (I'd post a link but something's wrong with their website).

For you Mill Hill kit enthusiasts:
Look at this very well organized fabric room. Every color and count under the sun. And more beautiful shop models.

Dave came back to pick me up (he had visited a local hobby shop with a big outdoor race track), and we headed back to the park, hitched up the trailer and hit the road for the beach! Where I've stitched a little...
