Pedro’s South of the Border
7” x 8 1/2”
Back in the 1990’s my mother would drive my sister and I down to South Carolina where my grandparents lived near Charleston. As most people who drive the 95 route know, starting after NJ maybe you start seeing signs for Pedros South of the Border. Dozens of signs with questionable puns would announce how much further to the greatest road side attraction on the east coast. We would stop there briefly so I could buy some fireworks to bring back north with us.
In middle school my father wanted to take me on a road trip to anywhere I wanted for my spring break. It was the first place that popped into my mind. He thought it was an awesome idea. So we packed up a few things and headed South. Stopping a few places to do some sight seeing. We made it down in two days I believe. Stayed in the motel, the one featuring “The Pleasure Dome”. Went to the top of the sombrero tower, played so mini golf and ate at the dinner. Hands down one of the best memories as a child. First class.
