No, this isn't where I stayed during last week's travels. BUT I did make a screeching stop on I-17 to pull into this parking lot and take a picture of the sign. DRIFTWOOD MOTEL.
On my Driftwood Summer Book Tour I drive right past the Driftwood Motel. Not quite as cozy as the cottage in my novel, as far as I can tell.
This past week -- 1216 miles. Yes. Over a thousand miles logged. So many wonderful people and beautiful stories.
Favorite new discovery so far: Clay Rice and his silhouettes. Very cool.
Favorite food so far: Ms. Margaret Anne Johnston fried me up some fresh fish on Fripp Island.
Least Favorite Stretch of Highway -- I-17, which I usually love, but is completely under construction...
Best surprise so far: High school friends found me in Charleston at the Barnes and Noble. I forgot I had high school friends. :)
Best beach I've never been to so far: The stretch of beach behind my friend, Jenny's house on Pawley's Island. The full moon stretched across the water and it all looked like something out of a movie; all photoshopped and fake, but it wasn't. At all.
Next week -- Greenville, SC; Jefferson, TX; Birmingham, AL; Fairhope, AL; Atlantic Beach and Vero Beach, FL.
