Back from an adventure!

Oh my gosh! Where to even begin??? The beginning is probably the best!
First of all, two things we said we would never do, again...go to the beach for July 4th and never to Myrtle Beach for the 4th or ever again...(we're dyed-in-the-wool Holden Beachers!)
Well, so much for saying that!
Day 1...went a new way via our brother-in-law, enjoyed the scenery until we hit some highway
and then it was bumper to bumper for over 20 miles and we barely even moved at times.
Everybody and their brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousins, etc. on the same road going the same place! BUT...we survived!
We arrived at our destination, Apache Campgrounds, Myrtle Beach. My sister met us at the entrance in her golf cart, checked us in and then to our "home" for the next 4 days.
It's a trailer...a tiny trailer and my parents had rented it for the week. (They are still there)
Our bedroom was the tiniest I've ever seen and the half bath...oh my! You couldn't walk around the bed, you had to go sideways and you would hit your elbows on the walls of the bathroom trying to put yourself back together! was clean! Mike's head was in the blinds and his feet and ankles hung off the bed! BUT it was comfortable for me!
After being in the car for what seemed like a zillion hours( a slight exageration) we got back in the car to go to Hamburger Joe's with my parents, my sister and her husband and his son and girlfriend and another couple. Food was good!
Back to visit and bed! Whew! What a day!
Day 2...the three Seas...the Atlantic, the sea of humanity and the sea of "wall to wall" trailers, campers, RVs, golf carts, cars, etc.! All my Dad could say was "Wow!" And how this was a new experience! He was absolutely right! We had a wonderful cooked-outside delicious breakfast and
then a 4th of July parade with almost 100 golf carts all decorated. I took one picture as you can see. That evening the fireworks lasted well over an hour and were beautiful!
Day at Tanger Outlet with my mom and sister
Day 4...breakfast on the pier and out on the beach with the other zillion people! Then one of our favorite places, Calabash! Good food and St. Nick Nacks! More visiting that evening and riding the cart all over the capmground! Back to pack and hit the sack!
Day 5...left at 7 and home by 10 am! There's no place like home!
All in all it was a really good trip! We just looked on it as an adventure and that's what we had!
The weather was perfect...not too hot and lovely at night!
And the company, well family is always special!
