Next Up, Myrtle Beach

We arrived in Myrtle Beach late Sunday night and spent the next day at the beach. Well, actually, Colin and I spent the morning in our beautiful hotel room finishing up his online Spanish course, since Monday was the deadline. The rest of the kids got more than enough sunshine, and were thoroughly cooked by the end of the day. So how do South Carolina beaches measure up? Well, let's just say we're glad Grandma and Grandpa still live in San Diego!

We ate a wonderful Southern dinner here. Notice that, although the kids got plenty of sun today, I managed to maintain my beautiful lily white complexion.

We finished off our evening with a friendly game of putt putt golf (as opposed to miniature golf, which is what we call it out west). Apparently, Myrtle Beach is the putt putt golf capital of the world, and they have courses on every other corner. (The other corners have giant hotels and gargantuan t-shirt and souvenir shops.) The golf courses are unique in that they take up a smaller footprint than the courses we're used to playing. By the time we finished, we were three stories up!
