2016 Spring Break - Myrtle Beach



In March we had scheduled a spring break week at Myrtle Beach with our granddaughters.  It did not work for them to join us, but Paul and I decided to go anyway, as we really do enjoy Myrtle Beach in the off season.  We've never been there when the summer crowd is there, when I'm sure it's bumper to bumper traffic.  We drove through the northeast corner of the Smokey Mountains, down through Asheville, NC, and out to the eastern seaboard.



Broadway at the Beach is a large shopping, eating, and entertainment complex.  A fun place to walk around.  Sometimes a hubby has to wait while the wife shops.  That's the Mystery House  on left, and a restaurant to the right.  We also enjoyed the Barefoot Landing complex, as well as the Tanger Outlet Mall.  But our favorite place to be was at our ocean side resort.





I loved getting up for the sunrise and walking along the ocean.  I was never alone...there were always birds to keep me company if not other people or dog walkers.  It was such a pleasure to hear the ocean waves roll in.




Our resort condo was on the 12th floor of the Marriott's OceanWatch resort.  We had a room looking directly out to the ocean, overlooking one of the pools on the complex.  I would sit out on the balcony in the mornings to have my devotional time, and listen to the sound of the ocean.  God our Creator has given us a beautiful world in which to worship Him!  Pause and do just that as you watch this video:

Back in Michigan!

Just a quick update post to say we are back home in Michigan after our winter get away to Crossville, TN.  Glad to be back home, but will be happier when it warms up to stay!  I plan to blog about our week in Charlotte, NC...later.
