Beach vacation

After completing the Bike MS double century, we had a much needed vacation. On Monday, our big decision was beach or pool. We decided on the beach in the morning and the pool in the afternoon. I read my book and rested my eyes periodically in both locales. The water was nice. The sand was soft. What more could I ask for?

We did some outlet shopping as well. I had a quest to try on 100 pairs of jeans but stopped just short of that after finding a few pairs that fit nicely.

DH and I went to Friendly's one night. That is something that I like to do when we are in Myrtle Beach. In high school my friend Pam and I went to Friendly's frequently and dealt with our teen aged angst by splitting Jim Dandy's.

Another night we saw Burn After Reading.  I really had to see it after catching a glimpse of the trailer where Chad (played by Brad Pitt) says, "He thinks it's a Schwinn!"  I enjoyed the film quite a bit.  I like most of the Coen Brother's films though and I generally enjoy Frances McDormand's roles in their movies.

The beaches at Myrtle Beach are really great. The traffic there can be pretty bad but since we tend to go at the tail end of the season, it's OK. I do wish that the food there was better. Whenever we are there, I feel like I am in the chain food capital of the world. You'd think that since it was a beach, good seafood would be abundant. Someday we'll find some good local places!
