Sights from Myrtle Beach, SC
(from when I was there on vacation two weeks ago!)
We always go shopping at Barefoot Landing. Not only are there great little shops, but there are birds and fish and turtles to admire.
We spent a few hours at Ripley’s Aquarium, which was very neat.
Well, this is definitely a blowfish. I’m not sure if the previous one was, but it might be! Hey, how’s that for educational? “This is a fish. It might be a blowfish, might not. I wasn’t really paying attention, I just thought it was neat.”
I made a couple of videos inside the aquarium that I thought were cool.
When we were finished at the aquarium, we went over to Broadway at the Beach and browsed through the shops. Then we fed some of the fish.
We didn’t spend much time on the beach, because the sun refused to come out. It was never stormy, but it rained a few times, and was cloudy pretty much the entire time. Some years we get sunshine, some years we don’t!
Requisite shot of me, on the beach. I like last year’s better.
(In fact, all of last year’s pictures are better. Go admire those.)
Despite the lack of good picture-taking opportunities, I had a good (and very relaxing!) time at Myrtle Beach this year. I need a few days away every three or four months just to recharge.
Miz Poo in the sun. I don’t know if it’s the change in the weather (we had a cold snap for a few days, and now it’s warmed back up) or if she’s going through a second childhood or what, but Miz Poo has been SUPER vocal lately. She’s been carrying toys through the house, keening. She’s been running over to join in on conversations that Fred and I are having, and sometimes if Fred’s on the phone (for work), she runs in and tries to take part in that conversation, too. She cracks me UP.
