Greetings From The Beach

We were able to get away again and head down to the beach. This uses up two more of my vacations days from work. I got seven more to go. This is our last “long weekend” trip until we take our big week in August. We choose to skip coming down in July as it’s usually too crowded. Each morning Nick sets out two of our chairs and the umbrella to mark our spot. 


Im currently sitting here on the beach under the umbrella. I got a significant amount of sun yesterday so I’m chilling in the shade today. This is my current view.



We have had a pretty good time despite having one of my inner ear (Menier's/Tinnitus) issues thats lasted a few hours yesterday morning and again last night. I continued my activities such as taking a walk and going out to dinner. Luckily, no vertigo erupted. Today I feel great again. 

The weather is in the upper 80’s and the sun is hot. There are a lot of people here but it’s not too crowded. Despite the Portuguese man o' war threats we have been having here this week, I took a dip in the ocean anyway.  
The country music festival is going on up town Myrtle Beach but we are not going. We would rather skip the crowd. Being our last day before heading home in the morning, we will stay out here on the beach til sundown sipping on water and wine. We enjoy talking and laughing with friends and people watching. 

The best thing is my new beach chair. 



I have enjoyed this thing all weekend. It has a face hole and arm holes for laying on your tummy to read. I don't read so I keep the hole covered with the attached pillow. The best part is the foot rest. It’s like a recliner on the beach. 

It’s almost lunch time so Nick will head up to the camper and fix few tomato sandwiches and bring them out for a picnic on the beach. Before I go, I want to show you this cute barrel train someone made with barrels and taking kids (and adults) for rides around the campground. 


How clever? 

Oh and those clouds back there? Not sure why they looks so stormy but they are moving West and the sky is mostly clear. 

It’s going to be a lovely day.

  2. The beach looks big, and clean. I do not like to see clouds when I am at the beach. LOL. Hope you enjoy every moment. I agree, when it's overly crowded, it's not near as much fun. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
    ps..I would want a burger on my tomato sandwich. :):)

    1. The tide was out but its a nice size beach. Beach regulations is you have to keep your umbrellas behind the lifeguard post. It’s pretty clean too.

  10. We don't like the crowds either . . . sitting on the bench and watching the world go by sounds like heaven. Love your new chair that thing has all the comforts of home, LOL.
    Happy Holiday.

  11. I hear Myrtle is full of crowds, worse and worse every year. I hear crime is a huge problem as well. I'd rather be at Beaufort, Charleston, or Wilmington.

    1. We stay in North Myrtle Beach. Its not too bad there. I know there are better places but can afford it. Besides there are not many campgrounds that are ocean front like ours. We love ocean front.

  12. We love the beach but we rarely go in the summer these days. We go in winter when we have the place almost to ourselves.
    I'm still not getting notifications when people comment. It's cramping my style.

    1. I know! Its frustrating. Do this.... after you write a post, go down to the comment section and click “notify me”. The you will get comment emails but you have to do it after each blog post.
