Myrtle Beach

     The second weekend in January we went to Myrtle Beach, SC (about 4 hours away) for a weekend getaway. With Michael's new job he doesn't have any holiday time until August, so we thought we would take advantage of this long weekend. We had also saved some Christmas money for this specific event, so off we went.:)

     We stayed in the Monterey Bay Suites, and extreamly reasonable place to stay and quite nice for your money... We had a wonderful time... They have tons of little shops, two really cool shopping centers,  lots of mini golf, an aquarium, etc. We mostly walked through the shops and along the beach and boardwalks.....It was our first official vacation since we've been married, and we really enjoyed it.

     The beach is so amazing and theraputic.... My grandparents live on the West Coast, and you can see the ocean from their deck.... I LOVED going there to visit (still would love to:) ) growing up and Grandpa would take us out on his boat. Those are some of my best memories growing up....

You could ride this and look over the city and ocean.
