The Beach


I thought I would share with you some photos of our beach vacation.  We were in North Myrtle Beach, SC.  When I gathered everyone's schedule to plan a vacation it was immediately clear that the only week available was in May!


That means if you want to swim in the ocean and not become an ice cube you must travel south.  We wanted a family atmosphere (read that as:  quiet, clean, and less crowded).  That is how we picked North Myrtle beach.  It was lovely to have oceanfront accommodations, the balcony view was perfect.


I believe that I am fully recovered from the eternal ride coming home from the vacation.  Long car rides do me in mentally and physically.  My house is mostly tidy.  The laundry is caught up. I am now in the "summer" time of the year with both kids home.  It's nice to have a full house again.


Another great way to kick off the summer is trying some new recipes.  My sister and I are both participating in the 30 Day Vegan workshop which started yesterday.  I have no goals.  I just want to experience new recipes and focus on a healthier eating life style.


This last photo is someone's beautiful sand creation that I needed to photo.  I don't know who made it but I love their style :)

    I hope you and your sister enjoy the class, I had wanted to
    take it myself, maybe another time.
    Give Frodo a pat for me.

    PS- I think I could eat a whole loaf of sourdough
    bread by myself too! :)

  12. Love the pictures....puts me really really in the mood for our family vacation mid-June just south of Myrtle Beach (Holden Beach); 13 of us---guess we'll be bringing our own "crowd"!!
    Anxious to hear about the 30 day vegan course; I thought about it, but I'm going to be in and out most of the time it was running. Hope you get really inspired!

    the only reason i like car rides is because i get to knit for long stretches of time. my husband knows better than to ask me to drive ;o)

  15. Looks wonderful. As a kid we vacationed in Myrtle Beach every summer, I have some very fond memories. In fact my parents head back every year for the month of October and then again for February and March, they love it there.

  16. Thanks for sharing your beach photos! Your trip looks wonderful! We camped in Myrtle Beach last summer...it was nice but I would have much preferred North Myrtle Beach and less hoop-la. Thanks for stopping by today....with our upcoming move and the busyness, I have been a less frequent visitor to blog land and missing it!
