This blog hop was the idea of Lexa Cain, who needs cheering up after a laptop crash. Truly a bummer, but the worse part is not remembering all of her passwords! Here's to you, Lexa!
My first memories of vacation were the family trips to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It's wasn't that far from home, but when you're a kid, it seems days away. "Are we there yet?" My parents insisted on seeing the ocean before doing anything else. They'd park the car at the boardwalk, and we'd walk onto the beach.
Today I still do the same... park at the boardwalk and walk down to the beach. I could stand there forever, breathing in that wonderful salty air.
It's a popular spot for families, and they still use blue umbrellas!
We played lots of mini golf... but they have changed over the years. They are no longer ground level only.
We love playing in the foam at the water's edge. We love the sand castles that are here today - gone tomorrow. I agree, it's time to go and stake out a spot on the shore. Of course we love the late afternoon, watching the ships, and small boats come in to shore. Can you hear the roar of the ocean as you drift off to sleep?
