We are in Myrtle Beach, SC right now on vacation! The drive down yesterday went very smoothly and there was hardly any traffic. We stopped in Virginia to pick Zoe up and then continued on our way down here. We got here around 5pm, checked in and then drove over to the beach right away! We walked along the shore line and we were just amazed how much warmer the water is compared to Ocean City and Rehoboth. The water here must be close to 80 degrees! The beach we went to is called Surfside and it is about 5 miles from Myrtle...and a lot less busy. We knew then that we would be going back to Surfside the next day.
This morning we got to the beach around 9:30 or so and were there until about 2:30. Tony was lovin' the boogie board and finally convinced the kids to give it a try. Once they got started they realized how much fun it was and were on it for quite a while. I got some of the boogie boarding on video and when we get home I will attempt to put some of that on here for you all to see! As you can see we also spent a good while building this awesome sand castle...it washed away before we left though, the waves just kept getting bigger and bigger! After going to the beach all day you would think we would be tired of the water, but no, not us. Straight from the beach we headed to the resort's outdoor pool! It was so nice to be out of the sand! We stayed there for about and hour or so then we headed to the room to figure out where we were going to go to dinner. We thought it would be fun to go to Planet Hollywood, and the kids were up for it, so we ended up there. We had a good time trying to name all the celebrities and I was surprised at how many we knew! Can anyone tell me who this is in the white tank top? I can't think of his name!
