I have always relied on landmarks for directions. However, yesterday was a perfect example of my total lack of directional skills! I went to three estate sales. Since we moved here I've relied on landmarks to find my way around. Now I have to use a map because of all the damage Hurricane Ivan did. The landmarks are missing either completely or they no longer have signs. And street signs? Forget them. Most have some sort of damage. Either they are missing, bent to the ground, bent in half or so twisted by the winds, you can't rely on them at all.

I did find my way around, but it took far longer than I expected. I did get some excellent bargains and am very pleased, especially with my $20 very well made computer desk.

It's a pretty interesting place to drive around right now. It's been a month since Ivan and things are still an awful mess.
