Swimming the Ashley with Pat Conroy, Leo and Sheba yesterday

Possibly the most enjoyable all day drive yet.  Linda and I started early yesterday, driving to High Point pulling a 12 foot trailer full of furniture.  I don't think anyone tells a Southern tale better than Pat Conroy, and after living in the low country for a few years, we have a particular appreciation for the area.  Linda purchased the books on tape v. of Pat's long overdue "South of Broad" at 5:30am and the next thing I know we are pulling into the DoubleTree in Greensboro at 5:30pm.  -  Wonderful story.  But the odd thing is there were sooo many similarities between his main charactor - Leo King.  We're only half way thru.  Can't wait for the 12 hour drive back home next weekend.
