MYRTLE BEACH, H'YAR WE COME: Again!

THE GOOD LIFE   THE GOOD LIFE   THE GOOD LIFE   THE GOOD LIFE

A SIMPLE LIFE IS A GOOD ONE FOR ME.  I DON'T NEED A WHOLE LOT.  FOR ME A T-SHIRT, A PAIR OF SHORTS, BAREFOOT ON A BEACH AND I'M HAPPY - Yanni

MY LIFE IS LIKE A STROLL ON THE BEACH, AS NEAR TO THE EDGE AS I CAN GO - Thoreau
Yep!  Sixteen days from today we will make our 26th trip to spend the month of October at Myrtle Beach.  It takes a lot of planning!  We will be feeding four different groups of people. Food is so much more expensive in Myrtle Beach, we buy it here. We have served the same food over the years and know what we need.

AT THE BEACH, JUST ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE!


CLICK ON PICTURE
The two, seven hour days we take to leisurely drive to the beach will be special this year.  We just bought an absolutely perfect Lincoln Town Car for the trip.  It was owned by a little, old lady who never liked it and did not drive it much.  We didn't plan to replace our current Town Car  until next spring but couldn't pass this one up.


ONE LEARNS FIRST OF ALL IN BEACH LIVING THE ART OF SHEDDING; HOW LITTLE ONE CAN GET ALONG WITH, NOT HOW MUCH - Anne Murrow Lindberg


BEACH FRONT ROYAL GARDEN RESORT
We've stayed in this same beach front condo since 1989, the last 12 years in a penthouse suite.  The unit goes for $2,000 a week in season but out of season we get it for $1,350 a month.  Each year, when we check out we make a deposit of $150 for next year and send a $100 a month.  It is just another bill.

THE SEA, ONCE IT CASTS ITS SPELL, HOLDS ONE IN ITS NET OF WONDER FOREVER - Jacques Cousteau


Myrtle Beach is known for it's golf as much as it is for it's beach.  We only play mini golf, but we play it very competitively.  Although we play various courses, we always play the course up the side of a fire-breathing volcano.

FEELINGS ARE LIKE WAVES.  WE CAN'T STOP THEM FROM COMING BUT WE CAN CHOOSE WHICH ONES TO SURF


MIYABI'S JAPANESE STEAK HOUSE
Sausage gravy and biscuits with fried potatoes, London broiled steak, corn chowder, the same food for years.  We eat out a lot.  One of our favorite places is Miyabi's Kyoto Japanese Steak House.  What fun to see the chefs cook the food as they tell stories and do tricks with their knives or maybe flip shrimp tails into their hats.

AT HIGH TIDE OR LOW TIDE I'D BE BY YOUR SIDE
BUBBA GUMP'S SHRIMP FACTORY

At least once during the month we will make a trip to Charleston an eat at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Factory, what fun!  So, Mark, Mary Kay, Jessi and Dave, Jillian and Titus,  Bob and Kathy, Cheryl and Jack and, last but not least, Delaney Rose, come on down.  Let's all get together.



LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

WE ARE TIED TO THE OCEAN.  AND WHEN WE GO BACK TO THE SEA, WHETHER IT IS TO SAIL OR TO WATCH, WE ARE GOING BACK FROM WHENCE WE CAME - John F. Kennedy
