Surfside Beach, SC

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.

Why Is It Called A Bucket List?

We have some interesting idioms in the English language. I mean what other language uses “Kick The Bucket” for dying? It’s kind of dark as it evokes suicide by hanging. You’ve seen it in the not so funny cartoons where the guy stands on a bucket with a noose around his neck. Once he “kicksContinue reading “Why Is It Called A Bucket List?”

Cruise Travel Is Back!

Of course like all things, plenty of people were cruising way before the CDC lifted the COVID-19 risk warning.

There was less turnover and we would not be constantly running into people in the elevator or the lobby. We have discovered that we really enjoy renting through VRBO so the T-day tripContinue reading “VRBO”

Walks On The Beach
