As you may have read, my husband and I were on vacation last week. We love the North Myrtle Beach area because it’s relatively quiet (especially in late April!). They’ve added lots of great shopping and restaurants in that area, too, making it one of our favorite places to retreat! Today I am sharing some of our favorite places and activities when we’re there!
Walking/Running on the beach.
We love to get up early and walk/run while the sun rises. It’s invigorating, it’s beautiful and it’s fun! Time together strolling later in the day is also fun. Hand in hand, we stop for a look at the pier or a beautiful shell, or to watch the parasailors do their thing. It’s just so relaxing to walk the shoreline!
Enjoying an ocean front room.
We spend lots of time on the balcony. I had my quiet time out there each morning. We ate our meals out there. The door is kept open so we can hear the beach any time we’re in the room! Being ocean-front is like living ON the beach without the sand!
Eating at Fun restaurants.
There’s a breakfast place we love – Golden Griddle. It’s so inexpensive, but the food is great. I always order from the kids menu and it’s plenty of food for the morning! There’s always a line out the door, letting you know it’s really good (and worth waiting for!)
We also make sure we eat at Sea Captain’s House. Their hush puppies alone make it worth the visit! We had salmon fixed with a Southern twist and it was delicious! We always share a meal and both of us are filled!! The view from the window is spectacular!
Another favorite place not pictured is California Pizza. The pizza is great, but we also love the atmosphere of sitting in their open air restaurant and enjoying the sights and sounds around us!
What’s better than not feeling in a hurry to get to the next thing? Time together at the beach is great for our marriage, even as empty-nesters!
These pictures are totally unfiltered. Every day the view is different and beautiful, pointing to an Awesome Creator!
We’re home and back into ministry and our daily routines, but how fun it is to look back at our pictures and remember our time away.
How good the Lord is that we vacation at the beach and come home to the mountains! We are indeed blessed!
Where do you love going on vacation? What do you do to refresh yourself?
