I Finally Caught the ‘Vid

Hard to believe since I’m triple vaccinated and wear my mask so much and avoid dining indoors in restaurants I contracted COVID but lo and behold I sure did.

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.
