So glad to be home...

It was a nice vacation. Really. I love the beach and, living in South Carolina, some very nice beaches are within a 2-4 hour drive. Last week, we went to the Grand Strand (SC coast, from Little River to Georgetown) and had a great time. The water was still to cold for me, but my children loved it, jumping waves and trying out a boogie board.
On the days when the weather didn't cooperate for beach time, we went to Broadway at the Beach, a shopping center/attraction a few miles inland. There are specialty shops, restaurants, and attractions for families. There's an IMAX theatre, traditional movie theatre, WonderWorks (children's museum), mini-golf and MagiQuest (a sort of walk through video game). The attractions themselves can be pricey, but there's no charge just to walk through and window shop.

We ate lots of seafood, walked on the beach, built sand castles and had as much fun as we could stand at Broadway at the Beach. So, it was a nice vacation. Really. But I am so glad to be home.


  1. It looks like you had a great time. Was the water very cold? We are going to Outer Banks at the end of the month.

  2. EvenAndy, the water was too cold for me to jump in, although I was fine walking on the beach and getting my feet wet. My children were fine with the water temp.

  3. Sounds like a great vacation and the kids never get cold, even when the water is freezing! I'll never understand that...

  4. Looks like you had a great time. I miss not living by the sea.

  5. Love walking on the beach picking up shells!
