Wow its been a week since my last post. I have been on vacation and between poor internet connections and sharing a computer with the rest of the family, it was something I decided to put off until I have some time to myself.
It was a pretty good week at Myrtle Beach. We started our mornings off with long walks on the sand. The shells would wash up with the tide like little pieces of broken pottery while I would look for some sea treasures.


I never noticed how colorful the little muscle shells were until I got down to take a picture of them.

I found a piece of yellow sea glass and I also found a piece of drift wood that will work well with a project I have in mind.


We enjoyed a little hula dancing and fire dancing show from a Hawaiian family at the campground.

There were five sisters (one not pictured) and they did great! Now I want to learn to belly dance. Ha!

Most of the days were sunny as we sat on the beach getting our tan on and getting under the umbrellas at times for some shade. The ocean water was warm and calm. Perfect for some wave jumping and swimming.

We had to fight the weather in the afternoons as the clouds would roll in and thunder and lightning would run everyone off the beaches.


But that didn’t stop us from cooking out on the grill and relaxing under the picnic shelter at our camper.

I hated to hang it up and head back home but work comes Monday and then my daughter will be heading back to college on the weekend. Soon it will be time to prepare for Fall.

Have you taken a vacation yet? Where did you go?
