We stayed just south of Myrtle Beach in Surfside. There’s a Holiday Inn there that we like. Our time was spent sitting on the beach or boogie boarding. I love riding the waves in to shore and I am really good at it. In fact, I should take surfing lessons. I think I’ll put that on my wishlist.

After Myrtle we went to Charleston. I’ve been there before when I was younger but for some odd reason I have no recollection of this gorgeous city! I loved walking around looking at the beautiful buildings. It was not anything like Philadelphia, that’s for sure!

We went to two restaurants in Charleston– Magnolia’s and Jestine’s. Magnolia’s was unbelievable. It was a top 5 meal in my book. Jestine’s was supposed to be even better– especially because Anthony Bourdain was there not too long ago. But honestly, I wasn’t impressed. In fact, I was disappointed.

Yeah, so I ate moon pies, Charleston Chews and drank RC cola. Walked all over the city in 100 degree heat. Toured the USS Yorktown Aircraft carrier and saw dolphins frolicking in the water below. Enjoyed the Aquarium in Myrtle Beach– felt like I was scuba diving without having to immerse myself in water. Body surfed some tremendous waves and just missed a shark attack that occurred only a mile north. Feasted on catfish, fried green tomatoes and grits. And had a great time.

Going Away

I’m going away for a few days and my plan was to try to schedule out some posts– but each time I should have clicked the schedule button I hit publish instead. So you’re getting a weeks worth of posts today. Pace yourselves.

I’m off to South Carolina for a few days. If you have any trip suggestions or want to try to meet up- leave a comment.
