My husband and I just got back from renting 3 cabins this weekend with some of our friends. We had stayed at one of the cabins a few years ago and liked how convienent it was to the beach and the cost was great considering the summer rates with the hotels. Because of the location and price we convinced our friends to make a weekend out of it over Father's Day weekend.
When we first arrived, the first thing we noticed was the confederate flag flying right at the entrance. This was a little concerning considering my friends are African American and have small children. We chose to ignore it and as we drove through the campground, we saw several more. Our first night we were sitting out front of the cabin playing cards and one of their security guards kept walking by our cabin while carrying a confederate flag. This was extremely hurtful to myself and my friends and could not believe that in 2009, there are still people, more specifically businesses that engage in such tasteless crimes towards humanity. Needless to say regardless of location or price, we will never return again.
