Update on the Lund vacation…day four.
22 miles from our destination and big red, fed up with the heat, decides to boil over in downtown Pickens, South Carolina. It’s 95 degrees and stop lights every 100 yards or so which the car dislikes and manifests that displeasure by leaving us stranded on a street corner with steam billowing out from under the hood. We waited around for an hour to let her cool down then felt brave enough to unscrew the coolant cap (De ja vu all over again.) No Mt. Vesuvius this time just a little poof of hot air. While Linda and I sat on a bench in the shade, Denny and Joanie walked to a quaint little hardware store and asked the owner if he might be able to provide a bucket of water. The man was the persona of Southern hospitality and before long we had big red running and cool again..at least until we got to Tom and Ilene’s neighborhood and the car decided to boil over again .04 miles from their house.
I have an appointment with the radiator shop tomorrow morning and hopefully they can fix this annoying problem so we can continue our vacation through the South hassle free. Of course it wouldn’t be a problem if the temperature and humidity were not both pushing 100.
But let’s see. It’s all worth it with a golf game in the morning and a back porch view like this.
Ooops, gotta go. We’re going for a happy hour boat ride around Lake Keowee with snacks and cocktails.
In spite of the curves it throws our way…life is good.
