South Of The Border's reptile lagoon is cool![James Yingling, 11/11/2013]
Los reptiles aman sur de la frontera!
I was 17, part of a group traveling in two cars from mid-Florida to Virginia, one of which was a "driveaway" to be delivered at our destination. It was my way of getting back to my family in Connecticut, as I had been essentially a runaway for a year.
We all stopped at the South of the Border Motel for just a few hours of food and rest. We had taken a room for each "pair" (We weren't really couples, it just happened that we were all going the same way). We weren't there more than 10 minutes before I started hearing the voices that now I finally read were heard by several others over the years. I asked my partner, "Can't you hear those voices?" Then, "We have to leave." We did.
But I've been telling this story ever since.[Betsy Sloan, 11/03/2013]
