Ooooohh...you gotta love a campsite on the beach. We've heard lots of things about Myrtle Beach, SC and it all seems to be proving true. The Atlantic ocean beaches are so different from the Pacific side. Clean, for one thing. The sand is like talcum powder. Even though it's November, and we were walking on the beach at night, it still wasn't horribly cold. At our beaches on the Pacific side, it's freezing as soon as the sun goes down, even in the middle of summer. Here, yes a coat was handy, but it wasn't freezing. It's absolutely beautiful.
The campground has every amenity possible, including an indoor pool. It's enormous and has RV sites, mobile homes, and beach houses on stilts. A lot of people actually live here. Others own a home, rent it out during the summer (for tons of of money) and live in it during the winter when it's quiet but still warm. The front section closest to the water is for transient RVers like ourselves. Can't wait to see eveything tomorrow in the daylight.
So this morning when we were packing up to head down here, we had a small mishap. Dad had gone up on the roof of the trailer to sweep the enormous amount of acorns that had collected up there. A few minutes later, all we had left to do before leaving was to close the slides. Dad was watching me do that, but he had a feeling something wasn't right. It looked fine to me. So it's all closed and we step outside. Suddenly Dad is panicking. Apparently he had left the broom on the roof, on top of the slide, so now it was all wedged up against the wall and looked to be bending the frame. He felt TERRIBLE. I didn't think it was going to be a problem. I just opened the slide, Dad went up to the roof to retrieve the broom, and I then closed the slide again. No problem. As the day went on, Dad was convinced that he had broken our trailer and just couldn't stop thinking about it. Of course it was fine, no damage done, but he was quite nervous. So tonight, after that beautiful walk on the beach, he decided to take us all out for a fancy seafood dinner as an apology for the possibility of breaking the frame. And wow, was it good. We went to Drunken Jack's- a restaurant recommended at the Myrtle Beach visitor's center. I had fish smothered with crab and yummy sauce. Everyone else had lobster. Check out the pictures! Mmmmm....Thanks Dad!

sounds great!
hey guys, ran across your blog and it sounds like you're having great fun! I travel frequently and been to most of the places that you've gone through and love to see what life is like on the other side of the fence......what is the trip about and what kind of work are you doing? I sing gospel music and have been considering doing it full time and just traveling wherever the doors are opned. Living in an RV is really pretty nice for a few years!
you can email me at ramcc07@yahoo.com...would love to hear form you!
