Myrtle Beach, SC

We're in Myrtle Beach! And we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather! We got here a little before 2pm on Friday afternoon and it was 75 degrees and sunny! It was an easy trip. We stopped overnight Thursday,in Aiken, SC which was about 4 hours from Atlanta and then got up Friday morning and came on to Myrtle Beach, another 3.5 hour drive. Of course I had to get a picture of another river - the Savannah River, as we drove into South Carolina.

We're staying at Lakewood Camping Resort. This is a Christian-owned campground and it was really neat to pull in and see a Scripture verse on the marquee! It is a HUGE complex. The office looks more like a four star hotel lobby (not that I've been in many four star hotels!) They have many oceanfront campsites but you still can't see the ocean 'cause the dunes hide it from view. You can hear it, though! Then they have many, many other campsites as well as park model villas for rent around the two lakes they have. There's also annual lease sites as well as a small mobile home part onsite. There are many activities planned even though it's the off season. Can't imagine what it's like during the summer.

Got up this morning and walked around part of the complex. Was lucky enough to get a couple of pictures of the sunrise on the beach.
Also saw some of the birds that call this home; cranes, herons, mallard ducks. So cool.

We are going exploring tomorrow. There are a couple of plantations for touring south of here - in Georgetown. Who knows what we'll find! But, we'll share it with you, I promise!

Take care of each other. Until the next time . . .

    Thanks for stopping off in Birmingham. We had a great time with you. Cammy is missing Blackie though! (Was there some kind of romance happening that I wasn't aware of?)
