Beach Trip '08

It was a really great week at the beach with my parents, my sister and her family, and Jason, Casey and me. North Myrtle is MUCH more crowded though than I remember. We are going to the OBX next year instead. It's quieter and also has our favorite restaurants there.

I was able to see 2 of my very dear friends from Virginia, Nicole and Rhonda, while I was down there. We ate at some really great restaurants and had wonderful weather. Casey and Jason both love German food, so we found this "hole in the wall" German restaurant. They LOVED it! I prefer seafood at the beach. We did get plenty of that while we were there.

The pool area/hot tub area was very nice, but the water in the pool was freezing. I wasn't able to do more than sit on a float or take a quick dip because it was so cold. It didn't bother the kids though. They are immune to the ice cold temperatures I believe.

We visited the Alligator farm, did a little shopping, bought a kite and had fun with it on the beach, and of course spent most of our time on the beach and by the pool. Casey and her cousin Caroline read most of the time. The adults also got some reading time in. It was relaxing and a lot of fun, but I'm happy to be home.

This week is going to be a busy one as I start IV iron tomorrow at the infusion center in Charlotte, have a bronchoscopy this week at Duke, and we also have Casey's open house at school. She starts back a week from tomorrow.

Hey Christy! I just wanted you to know I was thinking about you! Sounds like you had a great time at the beach. I agree about North Myrtle Beach. It is as busy as the South part now if not more. I am going to OBX in October. I haven't been there in years. I can't wait!
