This is the fourth and final post about Myrtle Beach Bike Week and my experience as a first timer.
One of the things that was a bit of a surprise to me about my trip to Myrtle Beach is that actually going to the beach did not seem like much of a priority. Me? At the first sign of the ocean, I pulled the bike over, breathed in the ocean air and relaxed into the view. I’m an Outer Banks, NC kind of woman … the Outer Banks is “beautifully natural, formed by centuries of wind, water and sand blown from the Atlantic Ocean, and home to a rich history; a place that inspires a true sense of adventure” (http://www.outerbanks.org/)
Even though Myrtle Beach is vastly different than a less developed beach community, it was during the very early morning hours that I found the ocean experience that I love.
We rode our bikes to the 2nd Avenue Pier, enjoyed breakfast at the Pier House Restaurant, and marveled at the view.
There’s just something about a beach, whether developed or more remote and quiet, that makes me so incredibly happy.
As did this fun time away with friends that I adore.
Again there’s that beautiful natural light. How I love sunlight!
I think you’d go gaga for our beaches in Australia Laurie. If you ever want to come over, consider yourself welcome here. We have so many awesome beaches.
I will so take you up on that offer! and extend the same to you!
You so should. You and Fitty would have a ball taking/talking photos!!
EEK! You’re best post ever. It’s too difficult to choose a favorite from these.
Thanks! I was so glad to spend a little time on the beach! It was just wonderful!
Now that’d be the life of Riley! Woah Nelly they must really have to batten down the hatches in a hurricane in those apartments/condo’s. Gorgeous to live near the beach.
No kidding! Could you imagine being in one of those tall buildings during a hurricane? Yikes!
