Our first destination is actually Beaufort, South Carolina. My hometown where I grew up, I also went to Marine Corps boot camp 10 miles away at MCRD Parris Island. My High School Senior Prom was actually held on MCRD Parris Island  yes my Mom, Step-Dad, Sister, and an Aunt still live there.

It really is a neat little town. A very nice article for anyone interested.

Two more family members joined me for the trip. The 5 of us headed out early this morning from Austin Texas. We are currently 100 miles or so east of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

LOL - whenever I fry bacon (English/Danish bacon, not that fatty stuff called “bacon” in the US & Canada) I cook my beans/tomatoes in the bacon pan and soak up all the bacon “cooking juices”, or I clean out the pan with a couple of slices of bread (making sure I get all of the crunchy burnt bits).

Ahhhh, bacon grease, culinary heaven !!

Haha, that would have dietitians scrambling for their heart pills.

Hmmmm, I can almost taste it as I read your post, I've even chosen my bread, magnificent! That would have to be on any top ten list of life's simple pleasures. (If you're old enough and a Pom, you probably had "dripping" on toast as a child)
