Myrtle Beach day 6: a day without food porn

Yeah, somehow I didn't take pix of any food today. But honestly what I ate isn't anything you haven't seen before.

Ladies, happy 90th anniversary of being able to VOTE! Today in 1920, the 19th amendment was passed!

Shortly after the start of a new day:
somewhat after dawn of a new day

Beautiful clouds!

So my new room doesn't have a "do not disturb" sign. So I made one myself using the back of a receipt. I took it off this morning before hitting the beach. I come back from the beach and at first I think I'm at the wrong door. There's a "do not disturb" sign on my door, and it's plastic, but it's not a "best western" sign. I have no idea who put it on my door! I took it off again....but housekeeping never showed up.

Guess what I had for lunch? Lovin' the breakfast buffet open til 2pm every day.
the shoney's sign

Across the street from Shoney's is a t-shirt shop and Krispy Kreme. Camelot is in the middle on the ocean.

I rented beach chairs and an umbrella today. I swam before lunch and only got my feet wet shortly before dinner

Here was the view from my chair

The beach sand is SO HOT. It didn't help the blisters on my feet (which were obtained during my donut mission the night before).

If I looked up:

One of my more favorite beach plane signs:
Crabby Mike's

My hotel is on the left and in the middle (I'm staying in the building in the middle).

I actually fell asleep in my chair. when I woke up, I expected to be in my hotel room. And my hands were numb like they get in acupuncture! I didn't even read that much this afternoon. It was truly an unusual afternoon of doing nothing.

Around 4:30 the umbrellas are dismantled and you are kicked out of your beach chair. Now I'm left on the sand. To the right you can see the thunderstorm about to roll in

I had dinner at K&W and surprised the grandfatherly type worker. He is just incredibly nice. He wanted to know if him saying "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" made me change my mind about leaving. Hee! I ate way too much again. At least this is only one week of the year!

Mother Nature was putting on quite a show tonight with the moon. I wish I could have recorded the moon's ascent into the sky, while it played with the clouds. It felt very much like it could have been a meditation video. It was red and orange and the clouds were all around it...over it...cutting it in half, striping it like a tiger...all sorts of patterns.

  1. Was this some serious personal retreat or what? Amazing that you took all this time for you alone. Must have been really peaceful and healing.
