Traveling to North Carolina in late August 2014

Since it had been awhile since our last County Spot road trip we decided to take a little journey from our new base of operations in Hobe Sound, Florida to North Carolina. Our final destination in North Carolina was once again the Franklinton area, but we decided it was time to take an alternate route and explore some of southern North Carolina on the way. The first leg of our trip left us no time for real sight seeing as we ran straight up I-95 from Florida to Santee South Carolina where we stopped for the night.

In the morning we started off around Santee, SC taking some photos of the town and nearby Lake Marion, marking it as a place we would like to return for further exploration. We then needed to keep heading north so we crossed Lake Marion and then left I-95 to start on our sight seeing adventure. We traveled across route 15 and 341 to connect to US 1 which we took through the remainder of South Carolina into North Carolina. Along the way we collected photos of Chesterfield County SC and the town of Cheraw which will soon be added to our photo gallery.

We were also exicted to get a glimpse of the Rockingham Speedway which looms quite large as you pass through the quiet countryside outside Rockingham NC.
