The Beach Trip 2009

Our usual vacation is a trip to the beach and a few day stay at the Springmaid Resort and this year was no different. We drove down Sunday morning and arrived about 2 PM and check in and got settled in our room.

View from our balcony
After a little rest and a short walk around the grounds and on the beach we headed for our favorite restaurant Sara J's in Garden City and by the way unless you are a big eater and you order the fish plate choose the senior plate it is more than I can eat for one meal . We always choose a table inside but there outside tables on the  porch and the view of the inlet and buildings in the back ground are breathtaking . Just to the left of the restaurant is also a great place to take pictures  here are a few .

The next day after a buffet breakfast at Marlins restaurant we headed for the beach. As usual we did not come with the chairs and umbrella , because we had always rented one on the beach which is easier than setting one up and taking it down ever day and washing and drying it off before putting them back in the car. Well to our surprise the rental service on beach at the motel had closed for the season. So day one and two we sat on the beach sand and Delores spent time looking for shark teeth while I walked to Myrtle Beach State Park pier and back several time each day. We decided to spend the last couple of days around the pool where there was plenty of chairs and nice cool water. Stopped in Columbia at the mall on Harribson Rd.on the way home at streached our legs and did a little shopping . We had a great vacation and can't wait till next year .
