I was up super early again this morning...partly because of my sinus congestion and partly because I was excited to get on with the day and see the area. One great thing is that I managed to get my travel journal all up-to-date!
We sat and rested for a bit, taking in the lovely view and then headed back. We were back at about 12:50...just under 2 hours. It felt great to get out for a good walk...something I’ll have to make sure I do everyday...I need to walk off a few pounds!! Although Steve may need to wear his runners next time...2 hours of walking on the sand wore his feet raw...like a big emery board, I guess!
After relaxing with a bottle of water, I decided to take my ipod and earbuds/microphone over to the free WiFi zone and see if I could get connected on Skype and call my brother, Dwight, to see how things were back home. I had successfully tried this when we first started our adventure and were down in Washington State. I have Skype as an app on my ipod and with the microphone built in to the earbuds, it can be used as a phone. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to connect to Skype...I’ll have to try it another time.
After seeking out some shade for our chairs, we sat out and enjoyed our happy hour. With the late afternoon, though, we were soon seeking out the sun again but eventually it went down behind some trees. It’s getting darker and darker...earlier and earlier...
We’d had a great first full day at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina....I still have a hard time believing we are here...another stop of many in our adventure! What a blast!
