We weren’t sure about camping in Myrtle Beach, but Bill selected it because we could camp on the beach! We had vacationed there in 2000, taking our daughter and two of her friends. We rented a condo on the beach and to put it kindly, we weren’t impressed! Maybe because we had three wild and crazy high school graduates!
But after this stay, I can tell you that we ended up falling in love with it! Because we were right on the beach and we do love the beach. We discovered this is the best beach to walk on that we’ve seen in all of our years of visiting beaches. Bill’s parents told us it was their favorite beach as well-and for that very reason.
This is a picture of the walk way from our campsite to the beach. We were able to walk on it twice a day, except one night when it did get too cold and windy.
We really liked the campground, but the sites were a bit too close and was more expensive than we would have preferred! BUT, we were right on the beach.
We had brought own prepared dinner, baked ziti, but ran out the last night. So we had to decide what to buy for dinner. And this is why we decided we didn’t like Myrtle Beach the first time, we weren’t impressed with the restaurants. So we decided just to get a pizza since we had lots of fresh salad. Can you believe we couldn’t get a decent pizza? So we have to make sure we plan our home made meals better next time!
We were more or less under time constraints to get to our daughters to take care of our new grandson. Plus we were really just learning how to camp and travel with our new RV. She had two months off and he was going into daycare. I thought it best to keep him out another month, so that was really what the push was for us to buy and RV! I needed a place to live for a month. Our daughter had converted the guest bedroom into the nursery.
We really didn’t do much and found out you can’t in three day and two nights. So other than checking out the campground, walking on the beach, and finding no decent pizza, we went to Camping World when it rained one of the two days we were there!
We decided we would return and come for a longer time next time. But we decided we would try the other large campground next time, for comparison purposes.
We are continuing to praise and thank God for His many blessings! In spite of the not so great weather for a beach visit, we had a great time! We continue to “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV)
Here is the latest picture of Colin, sent to us the day we were heading to see him! Look at that great smile!
