Weekend at the Beach

With summer behind us, We made one more trip to the beach this year. It's that time of year where we spend a few hours  winterizing our camper which we keep stored at the coast. Its sad to close it up, but I guess its no use in coming down here when its cold, after all, we love the hot sun and with Christmas around the corner, we just do not have much time left anyway.

On our way down to the beach I always notice what the gardens are producing. Sometimes its peaches, strawberries, and used to see tobacco, but in October we see alot of cotton. As far as you can see. Its very plentiful this time of year.

Once we arrived to our camp spot, the weather was in the low 80's with no wind or humidity. Perfect day for a long walk on the beach and a little sunbathing.
We set up our small umbrella for this trip. The next 2 days were just as nice.
 We even had Mr. Crab visit us where we were sitting and I even took a dip in the ocean. The water was cold but not to cold to stand.
Beach flowers were blooming and the butterflies were everywhere. They were swarming all around almost hitting us in the head everywhere we went. I didn't mind. They were so pretty in bright yellows and orange. I tried all weekend to get a picture of them but they would only show up as little dots in the photo.

Later, we decided to go out to eat at a place that was recommended by my brother-in-law. It was called Duffy's seafood shack .

 It was located in North Myrtle Beach on a little corner on Ocean Drive.  At first I thought it was rather nasty looking but once our meal arrived, I took at different attitude. The food was delicious.

 I had a platter of broiled fish, scallops, shrimp and crab legs marinated in a lemon and wine sauce. It was delicious and I ate every bit of it. My husband had Maui Maui. His was very delicious too.

As we took our last walk of the year on the beach, the shells scattered about the sand like little pieces of broken ceramics, we say good bye and start talking about what it will be like next year when we come back. We can hardly wait already.
