We were much in need of some family time away from work and the hustle and crazy that the last month has held for us. So when the people of Myrtle Beach offered to put us up in a hotel for a couple days, we figured a couple days before Thanksgiving would be a great time to go.
Everybody say “ROAD TRIP!”
7 hours later, and a quick stop in our room to drop off our bags and grab sandals and we were on the beach. One girl has some hesitations…she was convinced there were crabs on the beach that were going to get her.
Once she realized there weren’t any crabs nearby, she tiptoed on the sinking wet (and freezing cold) sand with the rest of us.She even found a nice shell.
With all of those toes with no shoes and the beach (the first trip for the youngest two that I can recall) I had to document it. About 0.2 second later, B was gone because she didn’t like the sinking feeling.
It was cold and the tide was low, but we were able to go pretty far out, even with reservations.
We just got here tonight, but I think the kids are already in love. I suspect there will be more trips to the beach in the next couple days and more requests for beach trips very soon.
