It really does fly. Whether you're really busy, or if you're sitting on the beach for hours on end. How can it be late Wednesday night already? Didn't we just get here?
Tuesday turned out to be another long and satisfying day at the beach. We got a late start...maybe 10? I think I read one page of a magazine. I don't know how I occupied the hours, but time flew. We picked up subs from Jersey Mikes. They're the best. I floated on my raft. Listened to music. Same old great way to spend a day. I'm happy to say that no one has a sunburn. Yeah! We go through a lot of sunblock. And my sister and I use our umbrellas.
Last night I made steak and chicken quesadillas for dinner. Much better than the hotdog meal from the night before. Our entertainment for the evening was outlet shopping. Not my cup of tea. I spent my time sitting on the benches with the men. I'm not a shopper. The kids wanted to go, and the boys were the ones who got stuff.
When I come to the beach, I only like to spend my days on the beach. I went to Bethany Beach for about 8 years. I never took a day trip to any of the interesting places nearby. Like Cape May or Assateague Island. This is my 5th year at Mytrle Beach, and ditto. Day in and day out on the beach. Today I made a change. My sister and I drove about 30 miles south to Brookgreen Gardens. I'd passed it a few years ago when I came to Myrtle Beach from the south (Edisto Island). I'd heard wonderful things about it. It's a National Historic Landmark. I love flora and fauna and everything about the SC lowcountry. The place was amazing. Check out the link.
Murrells Inlet. We ate at a local's place on a salt marsh. We bought shrimp that were swimming yesterday to cook for dinner tonight.
Lots of pictures to follow.
Not to be rude or anything, but.... - Today was chilly and rainy and beautiful. The earth is greening and color is staring to creep up the mountains, which make my morning hikes absolutely br...
