Day 4 — Savannah to Durham

9:00A. We're checked out of The Marhsall House and on the road. We'll miss Savannah, but our beds (and kitchens) are calling. We must remember to keep our eyes out for roadside attractions.

11:03A. On a mission not to hit any franchises on the way back, we stop at Clark's Inn and Restaurant in Santee, South Carolina. It's a classic small-town restaurant serving southern food. And also a huge mistake. The food was awful, the décor was hideous, the patrons were...odd. If you see the signs, skip them.

12:38P. Danielle wanted to get peaches, so we found this out-of-the-way vendor, Abbot Farm Peaches, in Florence, South Carolina. Not only did they have pecks and pecks of peaches, but they sold fireworks, pickles, preserves, and ciders. We loaded up on peaches and a few other goodies.

1:15P. We're never going to make it home if we keep this up. We found a huge farmer's market, in fact the state market, in Pee Dee, South Carolina. There weren't a ton of stalls, or variety, but everything looked and smelled great. Sherród got some crowder peas and we admired all of the fresh produce and goods. Homeward bound!

5:45P. Departing from Sherród's house in Durham, Danielle crossed the North Carolina/Virginia state line. Almost home!
