Myrtle Beach with Bobbi and David, South Carolina

A wonderful bonus of our vacation in Myrtle Beach was getting to meet Bobbi and David. Bobbi is Joe's cousin, and a fan of my blog, so I knew I would like her :-)  She and her boyfriend, David, came to visit us for the weekend and we really enjoyed their company!

Lots of walks on the beach and...

 a visit to downtown Myrtle Beach.

Joe, Bobbi and David. 

An enlightening encounter with Erik, the World Guy, who is walking to raise awareness of diabetes.
He charts his progress on his blog, and spends the night at a different place every day. Walking with his dog and his canvas globe, and depending on the kindness of strangers. It works!

Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina

Good photography advice that has stayed with me goes something like this: If you want to take more interesting pictures, stand in front of interesting things. Brookgreen Gardens in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has an abundance of interesting things to stand in front of, and Joe and I thoroughly enjoyed walking around here on a lovely spring day.

February and Heading South to Myrtle Beach, SC

In an attempt to make our winter a little warmer, Joe and I used our timeshare to go to Myrtle Beach for 2 weeks. Much nicer than Boston, no snow! and we had some great beach days. No swimming for us, but the heated pools had some young people in it. Joe and I liked the jacuzzi, and I enjoyed the morning stretching and yoga classes.

At the beach.

 Marriott Ocean Watch Villas, actually more like condos, and really well taken care of.

Football in the waterfall, looks like fun.

A day trip to beautiful, historic Charleston, more on that later.  

Our beach.

Life is good!
