After breakfast the 3 of us piled into our Pontiac G6 and drove up the coast to Myrtle.  The drive itself was quick and painless as we cruised up the coast.  Car Talk on podcast is a great way to pass the time.  I think I might almost know something about cars, besides how to roll down a window.  But once we got to Mytle, we made the mistake of taking the business route through town.  I think we got caught in EVERYONE driving through town to either their pancake and waffle breakfast or on their way out of town.  It was a big traffic nightmare.  Big hint to anyone who is driving, stay on the main highway til you have to exit. 
Well we made it finally up to the hotel.  I think it took close to an hour to make it through the town.  But anyway.  The check in was a zoo.  I was surprised the front desk only had 2 people working at that time of day.  After checking in we headed to North it.  Myrtle Beach and found the Sticky Fingers for lunch.  The food was good.  I have to disagree with Erin that its great.  I think I like the Texas BBQ best of what I have had.  But the food was still quite tasty. 
After lunch we slowed down and went down to the waterpark for some relaxing in the sun.  And that we did.  We even got a couple steps onto the sand and put our feet in the water.  So this makes 2 oceans for me this year, Atlantic and Pacific.  I am not sure I ever want to get in the Arctic.  Maybe walk on it.
We after a simple dinner back in the room we headed over to Barefoot Landing.  The place had a bunch of shops and some of them were kinda nifty to browse through.  We only found the candy stores to be exciting.
