Thoughts about life, and things we like and do, and how we get through life together with laughter. Life is hard enough. Don’t be sad, come with us on our journey and laugh about it instead.
Surfside Beach has a nickname – “The Family Beach”. Less than 5000 people populate this small area and it is a part of the Myrtle Beach strip called the Grand Strand. I didn’t necessarily see a lot of FAMILY at this beach but I saw a ton of retirees or soon to retire couples. ThenContinue reading “Surfside Beach, SC”
South Carolina has a lot of places to visit that is near water. I’ve been to pretty much every place at one time or another in my life. It’s farther to drive than NC beaches but it has some waterfront property that I can’t find in North Carolina. Murrells Inlet also has tons of seafoodContinue reading “Murrells Inlet”
