Vacation to Myrtle Beach 3/11/2012 Day # 2

Dan got up at 6:00AM and I got up at 6:30AM. I made some coffee and started getting ready for the day. We have about a 6 hour drive until we reach our destination which is Myrtle Beach, SC. We left at 7:20AM and stopped at Mc Donalds and got breakfast. We ate and I started drinking my coffee and I will be darned if they didn't put sugar in it. So we stopped a few minutes later to get another cup. Now we are on our way. Once again beautiful scenery.

I just loved this one with the crosses on the hill and the barns and stuff behind it.

                                                    The beautiful Mountains.

                                               We can't forget the cows.

                                      We arrived in North Carolina at 7:57 AM.

               We had another beautiful day of driving. Sunny and in the mid 60's.

We arrived in South Carolina at 11:03AM. Gosh it is so nice to see green and the trees are all getting leaves. The flower trees are all blossom's. I did notice that they were in bloom in North Carolina also, but more so in South.

The flowering trees and palm trees. We are getting closer to Myrtle Beach. I am so excited. Its been along couple of days riding and my bum is numb. It is worth it though.  I was hoping the whole way here that our hotel is as good as the reviews we read. Oh I forgot to mention that when we got in to South Carolina we were on highway 38 I believe and right along side the road was a chicken. I was really supprised to see that. Well we are just about to Myrtle Beach.

We arrived in Myrtle Beach at about 1:10PM and had to stop at Walmart to get some groceries. We decided that we would buy sandwich fixins and other snacks to have for our lunches. It will save on money and nothing like a fried bologne sandwich on the balcony watching the ocean waves. Right? After Walmart we headed for our hotel. Check in was not until 4 PM but sometimes they will let you check in early if the room is ready.

We arrived at our hotel at 2:04 PM and they were finishing our room. I told them don't bother with the bed because I brought my own mattress topper, sheets and quilt for the bed. So they let us check in and we got the very top floor. The 15th floor. We got a a queen suite. It has a bedroom with 2 queen beds, dresser, closet, tv, alarm clock and phone.

This is our little living room. It has a leather loveseat, chair, another dresser, tv, phone, dinning room table and chairs and a wall bed.

After we got unpacked and settled in we were hungry so we decided we would go to one of our favorite pizza places in Myrtle Beach. The Ultimate California Pizza. All the years we have been comming here we always find our way there. The have the best Pizza I have ever tasted. After eating we wanted to go check out our pools and the beach.

After walking on the beach we came up to the room and we go on our computer for a while and then I was wanting a sundae. We went up to Dairy Queen and I got a Hot fudge brownie sundae and Dan got a hot fudge sundae.

We came back to the room feeling fluffy after our sundae's and took our showers and watched the amazing race. It was kind of cool to sit on the balcony and we were both exausted.  End of Day 2. Day 3 to follow.
