Where I stayed
We came into Myrtle Beach yesterday afternoon, and found this most wonderful campsite, that is really like a little town. There are street signs (and stop signs), supermarket, café and fast food outlet and golf cart hireage place (which in summer has 1000 golf carts hired out just for this park!). It has its own church, and the lakes within this community that are lit up at night, and sprouting fountains and you can fish in them. They have also built self contained units, which an individual can purchase, and lease the land. And of course, there are the large RV sties right on their own mile of privately owned beach. Amazing place. I'll attach the website so you can have a look. (By the way, only cost about US26 per night to stay here at this time of year - another great reason to travel a little bit off peak.)
But anyway, the story continues ..
Well, we couldn't just turn up last night and leave this morning - the kids wouldn't let us! We hired some bikes for the day, and a golf cart for 24 hrs (only $14). Tara and Harrison did the Scavenger Hunt last night, which involved being split into teams and given 45 questions about the campsite, (remember the campsite is huge) and they had to go on their bikes, and find out all the answers by torchlight, within the hour
On the campsite is a Recreation Centre, which includes a huge indoor arena in which they accommodate different shows and performances as well as a fantastic indoor/outdoor pool complex, and we all enjoyed a swim this afternoon, after being down at the beach.
It's been a fun day, full of activity and sunshine, and as I write this it's 9.30pm, you can hear the waves crashing in and Gary has taken all the kids for a ride on the golf cart, right around the 300 acre site - just for fun .. which is what this day was all about.
