We had a great time in Myrtle Beach, but that was in huge part to the people. The hotel, on the other hand, was less than satisfactory. After a 10 hour, all day drive, maintenance knocked on our door at 9:15 pm to put Draino in our tub. We asked for them to come back the next day because we were sleeping, but alas, they never came. The third day, maintenance was upstairs "working on something" and suddenly, a monsoon was falling through our ceiling. "Great," we thought, and ran to the front desk for some assistance. There was debris everywhere from a previous botched patching job including what we can only assume was black mold. Sweet. After going to lunch, and an assurance from the staff that it would be taken care of, we came back to a dry floor and the same debris all over our clogged tub. We talked to the front desk 4 times that day to get someone to take care of the tub, and when someone finally came, we were out at dinner. Upon our return to the hotel, whoever "cleared" the drain left the blockage of hair and "gunk" in the unflushed toilet. What stellar service.
All maintenance issues aside, this hotel is in prime location for the beach, boardwalk, and bars. The best part about the hotel is their restaurant, The Patio. The staff there is friendly, outgoing, funny, and knew how to pour a fantastic drink. We loved The Patio and its staff of eclectic and wonderful people who quickly became friends. It was home away from home.
If you can get passed the clogged tubs, stay here simply for the staff of The Patio.

... pleasing and surprising end to the evening, Archie appeared on the field and the big screen as they asked him to pick the winning ticket in the prize draw! He asked the between-inning entertainment lady if he could get involved and she obliged! A video will follow when we can get it off Louise's phone! Another great day
... the challenges of the local 'mini golf' courses. They are mini-golf courses like nothing we've ever seen before. One even has a volcano (about 25 feet high) that spews out pink water (simulated lava)!
Oh and I also spotted an alligator in the golf course lake just outside our condo this morning …
More news soon … hopefully tomorrow when the Internet connection is sorted.
Much love to all
... sculptor and also imported a lot of other artist’s work. The zoo area was all native species to the area with an emphasis on birds and animals which were hit by cars and survived other accidents which would prevent them from surviving in the wild. The next plan was to get some ice and cold beers in town before heading back to the campground to cook dinner, but we “accidentally” took a wrong turn and ended up in Murrell’s Inlet, a ...
So, my brother in law, Craig Flanders, owns a small tiki hut style bar right on Myrtle Beach and invited us to come down and celebrate the 4th of July with him and his fiancÚ, Ashleigh. This worked out great for us as we arrived on July 2nd to discover a hurricane warning in effect for South Carolina for the 3rd of July! Really? Only 4 days into our adventure and Mother Nature throws us a hurricane? Come on!
... for dinner somewhere near here tonight. Tomorrow we are off to Georgetown on route to Charleston.
After our workout at Golds Gym we enjoyed a lovely lazy day by the pool today our first full pool day on this trip and the last I'm sure so we took full advantage of it. Lots of happy American folk hanging ...
