Today begins our first recap from our 2019 camping season. But before we dive into it, we have someone we’d like to introduce to you…
Meet the newest member of our family, Miley!
No, she is not named after that Miley. There were a few names in the running for her but ultimately we decided on the female version of Miles as we hoped she would be a good camping dog therefore traveling lots of miles with us.
We adopted Miley on January 6, 2019. She is a boxer/terrier mix who has been an absolute dream dog for our family! She loves to go for walks, snuggle, play, and just be with her people.
In March, we headed to Promised Land State Park in Pennsylvania with Miley to see what kind of camping dog she was going to be. We decided to leave the boys at home so we could solely focus on Miley.
If you missed North Carolina, Part 1, you can catch up here.
On Friday morning, we played around the campsite and ate an early lunch. After lunch, we headed to Mike & Eric’s friends’ goat farm in Rougemont, North Carolina. Elodie Farms is a 1910s tobacco farm turned into a goat dairy farm by Ted and Sandra. They have around 40 mix breed goats (and a donkey!) on 17+ acres of pasture and make fresh goat cheese and crackers among other things!
On Wednesday, we left New Bern and headed a little further south to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! We stayed at Myrtle Beach State Park, and loved it. We got there around 4:30 P.M., set up the camper and headed straight to the beach. One of the great features of Myrtle Beach State Park is that it has its own entrance to the beach. We didn’t have to drive into the city everyday and go to the public beach, it was all within the campground.
