South of the Border

Every time we travel up and down the east coast we crack up at the 999 billboards advertising South of the Border.  For the longest time we only knew of this place from driving by it.  At some point we actually stopped and stayed at the campground.  To say this place is bizarre is truly understatement. 

It starts out innocently enough.  It looks a little dated, but still kind of cute and sweet.
 Then as you look around, it seems dated and a bit strange.
If you look closer, you can see what begins to be really strange.
When we stayed here, Auburn joked that it looked like the set to a really cheesy horror flick.  The fact we were the only people we saw, beyond the workers, made it seem even more that way.  There is just no other place like this unique little complex.
The last time when we visited, I forgot to snap any pictures.  I'm glad I remembered this time.

Poor Ava, who had been lying down for the entire car trip so far had to stand up to figure out exactly what was going on.  After staring out the window for a few minutes, she turned around and looked at me as if to say...what the????????? 
I don't know, Ava.  I just don't know!
Living the life in SC!
