A Beach Weekend

After spending a weekend in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I can still remember the first view of the ocean and hearing the sound of the waves.   Add a bright blue sky and a light breeze and it was just about perfect.  As I walked toward the beach I saw seagulls, sand dunes and people walking their dogs.  This was a great start to the weekend.

But on Saturday the weather changed and it was gray and rainy most of the day.  I didn’t mind because it gave the beach a dreamy appearance.  I decided to spend time looking for seashells as souvenirs.  I also went to a nearby public sculpture garden to see some beautiful flowers and scenery.

Late Saturday afternoon the rain stopped and it was time to enjoy another view of the sand, water and the sky.

This was a weekend of interesting contrasts.

    • Thank you and I’m so glad to know that you like the beach and looking for seashells! I really like Old Orchard Beach too – it is a delightful place to visit in the summer… :)

  1. I grew up vacationing on Myrtle Beach. Back then, it had a pavilion and was a lot less commercial. But the broad beaches of SC and NC are especially inviting, even in the changing weather patterns. It gives it a whole new personality.
