Beachwear Stores Feed

Afternoon post

Whoo whee.  I'm a tired pup! I walked quite aways own 17.  I went to a bunch of stores and spent way more money than I should have.  I got some popcorn balls, a Dew, and a pen at Dollar General.  They get the popcorn balls at Halloween and Christmas and they are good!  I always get some.  I stopped at several beachwear stores.  I got two shirts at Bargain beachwear. My favorite beachwear store at the beach.  I got a cute MB shirt with a whale on it and a Pokemon Go shirt that has the three teams on it for $3!  I saw it in June and meant to buy it then, but I didn't.  I was surprised it was still there!

I also got another hoodie. :P . The Eagles I went in had some cute workout capris and I got a pair of those.  While I was browsing around the store, I saw that the hoodies were 16.99!!!  I have a yellow one, two blue, and two grey ones.  This one is pink!  It is cute and I couldn't resist for the price.  It's good quality because it's the same brand as my other ones.  

I also bought a cute mug in another store.  It's green and says cappuccino on it.  It's really cute but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking I won't be able to use it for coffee, it's too small. lol . I might use it as a pen cup!  I took some random pictures while out.  Here are a few:

Thursday afternoon

I slept a little later today than I have been all week.  I got up at 10:30, the same time I do at home. I ate some leftover pizza.  We ordered some late last night.  I walked to the Pavilion / Sky Wheel area.  I went to the Gay Dolphin.  I got several small things, a cute little wallet that I looked at last trip, and a shirt.  I left there and hit the boardwalk and walked to the 2nd Avenue Pier.  I was going to go out on the pier, but when I got up to where you pay to go out, there were too many people. I decided to not go out on the pier.  I came back here and changed shirts and sat down to cool off and relax a bit. I'm going to share some pictures I took and then heat up some more left over pizza!

Afternoon post time

I just took an extremely long walk.  I am exhausted.  I walked from where we are at about 29th avenue South to 21th avenue North.  I went to the Gay Dolphin, and several beachwear stores.  I went to a Starbucks I've been to many times.  While I was there, the barista told me about a new Starbucks location that was oceanfront.  I had to check it out.  I stopped there and it had fabulous views!  I took this picture at the table I was sitting at:

This is the cutest little Starbucks.  Here are a few more pictures that I took:

I will definitely return to this location.  I am glad to be back to the room at the moment though!  I was so hot and sweaty when I got here.  I took a quick shower and changed clothes.  We are heading out to eat about 6.  I am pretty sure we are going to Victoria's Country Cookin.  We ate there twice on our last trip down here.  I am looking forward to that.  I don't really want to move, but I need food. lol


Afternoon post!

I finally got up, got dressed, and got out!  I walked to 17 and walked down a ways.  I went in the Dollar General, Big Lots, Food Lion and a LOT of beachwear stores.  Not one of them had the decal I was lookingi for.  Boo!  I will keep looking.  I know I'll walk to the Pavilion area at some point during this trip.  There are lots of beachwear stores there including the biggest one of all.  The Gay Dolphin.  It's huge and has a little of everything.

I stopped at the McDonald's on my way back to the room to rest for a bit.  I got a Coke and some fries.  It was nice to be able to sit for a bit and relax.  I did that and then after a nice break, I headed back here.  I forgot all about turning on Pokemon Go until I was almost back here.  I did hit a Pokestop and catch one.  I'll do more later when I walk on the beach.  I like getting those.  

My friend is getting ready.  When he is done, we are going out to eat.  I think we are going to Checker's.  We loved Checker's the last time we ate there.  This is a new location.  The one we went to last year closed.  This one recently opened.  I hope it's good.  I also wouldn't mind getting some Starbucks while I am out! :p lol


Friday fun?

It is really hot here.  I went for a short walk and I will be going back out later, but I had to come back and cool off a bit.  I walked to two beachwear stores.  I wen to I <3 MB and got a couple of gifts for friends.  I went to Beach Life for another water bottle.  At only $5, that was too good to pass up!  I also found a couple of shirts that were bogof. I got a dark grey and a fuchsia one.  They are nice and the price was great!

I stopped at the McDonald's that is near our hotel to cool off for a bit.  I then came back here.  I want to walk some more, but it's so blooming hot.  I would like to go somewhere, but I just don't know where.  I will probably walk on the beach but I may wait until it gets a little later.  

In other news, we may have to go home early. :(  I hope we don't, but it's a possibility.  I want to stay until Sunday.  I'll try to update later.


Posting again? Yes.

So, I spent some time on the balcony and I relaxed a bit and then, I went back out. LOL  I went to a beachwear store and got a cute keychain that I'm going to convert into a bullet journal charm. :D  I went to another store that I went to earlier.  I had a coupon that had S'well type bottles for $4.99.  I didn't see any earlier. I had seen them in other stores and they were 12.99 and up! I went back in there tonight and decided to ask. They did have them behind the counter. I saw a light yellow one in other stores and I was hoping they had one of those.  They did. I got what is basically a S'well bottle and it was only $5! Yay!  I love it.

It's so pretty. Let me take a picture of the bottle and the keychain....

A random Scoob decided to pose with them! :p 


Beach trip recap...

So, I'm finally getting around to doing a recap of the trip. I'm pretty sure I told you everything as I was going along, but I was really tired on that trip so maybe not!  I went through my trip journal and pictures and took notes. :P

So, Thursday morning, my friend came.  We loaded my things in the car and then had breakfast.  He'd picked up biscuits from Hardee's on the way.  We ate and then headed out.  We stopped in Greensboro.  We don't usually stop until Rockingham, but he wanted a soda and I figured it would be a good chance to use the bathroom.  I did and I got a coffee! ^_^  We headed on and when we got to Rockingham, we topped off the tank and then went in the Sandwich Hut to use the restrooms and get snacks.  I usually get a drink and a Reese's, but I only got a Mountain Dew.  We drove on and when we were close to the beach, we stopped in Long's SC at a Goodwill there.  We found it on our last trip and stopped in.  I found a cute little purse/pouch.  It's fabric and it has two straps.  One to make it a wristlet and one to wear it around the neck.  The little purse is about the size of two decks of cards side by side.  It was only a dollar and I really liked it.

We left there and then headed on down to North Myrtle Beach.  We arrived at the Red Tree Inn and checked in.  We were able to get the same room we had last year. ^_^  That is always cool.  We put our things away and I had to go on the balcony some.  We were both hungry, so we headed out after a bit to eat.  We were going to Steak and Shake, but my friend decided to Golden Corral instead.  That was a good meal. I tried their honey sesame chicken and it was delicious.  I had put various things on my first plate and one piece of that.  I liked it so much, I went back and ate a plate of it.  We left there and went to a Dollar Tree and then back to the room.  We stayed in awhile and then headed out to a few places.  We went to the Goodwill and Dollar General.  We got some food, drinks, and snacks for the room in Dollar General.  My friend got a milkshake and then we went back to the room.  We ordered a pizza later in the evening from Hungry Howie's. I took a nice walk on the beach.  I was so tired, I forgot to look to see what the hotel looked like from the beach! LOL  Luckily, I did recognize it and I had my friend come to the window so I'd be sure.  I finally got back to the room.  I was exhausted, so I crashed a little bit after midnight.

I woke up at 6am on Friday. Yikes! My friend was up and he put on the Scoobynatural episode of Supernatural.  I watched it to the end and was fully awake, he was asleep! LOL!  I decided to get in my walk so I did.  I went to Starbucks and got my first cascara latte in a while.  BLISS.  I went in a few beachwear stores but didn't buy anything.  I went back to the room and ate some leftover pizza.  I was wanting to get out again but my friend was asleep so I decided to walk again.  I ended up walking about 3 miles from the hotel.  Keep in mind my first walk that morning was a total of six miles!  At the 3 mile walk on the second walk, I spotted a McDonald's.  I decided to go in and use the bathroom and then I got a frappe and a small fry to give myself a break from walking. I did that and then headed back.  I was one tired person that night!  I did go down and walk on the beach just a tiny bit. I have to have feet on sand everyday during the trip!

So the next day was our last full day.  My friend was going to hang out around the hotel for awhile, so I decided to head out.  He gave me some money so I could grab breakfast while I was out.  I stopped in at a pretty cool McDonald's and had biscuits.  After I finished there, I headed to the Starbucks and had another cascara latte. :D  On the way back to the room, I stopped in Tuesday Morning.  I got 2 rolls of washi, a card case, some stickers, and candy.  I walked to Ocean Blvd. and walked back to the hotel that way.  I went in three beachwear stores on my way back. 

I got to the room and then got my tumbler and went to the lobby to fill it with coffee.  I went on the balcony for a bit and then decided I wanted to go down on the beach.  I took my trip journal, my bujo, my coffee, and a beach towel.  I sat on the beach for a while and then went in.  My friend was ready to go to dinner soon after that.  We headed to King's Famous pizza. One of our favorite spots to eat while at the beach.  Later, after we'd gotten back to the room, he decided he wanted a Milkshake at Cookout and I wanted some Starbucks.   Yes, I had Starbucks twice in one day. :p  I packed up most everything to be ready for the ride home.

On Sunday, I got up and packed the last few things that I couldn't the night before.  I went to the lobby and got coffee and I also walked on the beach a little bit.  I took lots of pictures.  We loaded up the car and then checked out of the hotel.  We went to Myrtle for the first time since the trip began.  Our destination was Lenny's Country Kitchen in Myrtle.  We've eaten here many times while in Myrtle.  They have a nice breakfast buffet.  We got that and it was good.  We left there and were heading out  I needed to use the bathroom and forgot to go in Lenny's, so I told my friend if he saw an easily accessible McDonald's to stop and i'd use the bathroom and get a frappe.  We passed one and I got a frappe for me and a soda for him.  We got on the road again and didn't stop until we got to Rockingham.  We stopped at the Sandwich hut again and then headed home.  We got here a bit before 5.  It was a good trip, but way too short.  I'll post some pictures soon.


Last full day. :(

Today is our last full day here.  We check out and head out in the morning unfortunately.  I slept a little longer today than yesterday.  I got up and walked.  I stopped at a McDonald's and got a couple of biscuits for my breakfast and then walked to Starbucks to get a cascara latte.  ^_^  It was delicious.  I was able to get a spot to sit too, so that was great.  I stayed there long enough to drink my coffee and then walked on.  I went to Tuesday Morning.  I got two rolls of cute washi, some stickers, and metal card case holder with JFK on it.  As in JFK airport.  They also had LHA for London's Heathrow airport.  I thought they looked cool.  I got the JFK one because I'm a Kennedy fan.

I left there and headed back towards the hotel.  I found the perfect coffee mug in a King's beachwear store.  I had been looking at coffee cups in every beach store I went in.  This one was cheaper than the others I'd liked and so cute.  Unfortunately it had a chip and a crack. :(  I didn't get it.  It was the only one they had, too.  I was so sad.  I went in several other beachwear stores around there, but none of them had it either.

I finally got back to the room and relaxed a bit.  I went to the lobby and filled my tumbler with coffee.  I went to sit on the balcony for a bit, but then decided to go out on the beach.  I carried my beach towel, my coffee, and my backpack.  I had my trip journal and my bujo in my backpack.  I sat on the beach for a while and just enjoyed it.  I took pictures.  I'll share a few with you here:

It's been a nice little trip, but it's gone by way too fast.  We are heading out for dinner in a bit.  Not sure where we are going to eat yet.  


OMG OMG OMG

I am sitting on my balcony of the room with my Starbucks tumbler filled with delicious hotel lobby coffee. lol  I woke up at 6 am this morning.  Yikes! My friend was up too, and he pulled up the #ScoobyNatural episode of Supernatural. I've never watched the show before, but I'm a long time Scooby fan so I had to see it.  It was hilarious.  I loved it.  After watching that, I was totally awake and he was asleep!  I said phooey on this.  I'm not going to sit in the room and be quiet until he gets up.  I decided I'd take an early walk.  That is exactly what I did.  A six mile walk baby! I walked to the Starbucks and back.  Let me tell you about that.

So, I get to the Starbucks. I've been to this one once before.  Nice location, busy.  I get up to the counter and I ask the barista if they happened to still have any cascara sryup left.  i figured he'd say, no.  Well, he says, "We just got that back in."  I goggled at him and said, "Are you SERIOUS"!?!?!?!?!"  lol  He said he was, so I ordered my beloved cascara latte with almond milk.  I got a venti since I had free drinks.  OMG was it delicious.  I was so happy.  That first sip just soothed my soul.  Ive been smiling ever since.  I sat in there while i drank my deliciousness.  I wrote in my trip journal and posted to Insta.  I then headed back.  I did stop in one Bargain Beachwear store but i didn't see anything I wanted... well... I saw a lot of things I wanted, but i only have twenty dollars on this trip. lol  I got baqck to the hotel and stopped in the lobby to fill my Starbucks tumbler with coffee.  The coffee here is just as good as I remember it from last year.  

I am sitting here squinting in the sun typing this.  i see people walking two cute weiner dogs on the beach. I love those weiners!  I got to pet and love on an adorable Golden Retriever at Starbucks.  She was a sweet old girl.   I'm not sure when my friend will wake up.  I'm starving as I've only had my latte, this coffee I'm drinking now and a granola bar that I carried with me.  I have leftover pizza from a late night order, but we have no plates to heat it up on. lol


Friday evening....

Wow, what a day.  I walked on the beach this morning and got splashed by some waves.  I had to come back and put my shorts out to dry. lol  Later, I went walking to 17.  I went to Bargain Beachwear to get a few postcards.  I also got a keychain.  I headed further down 17 and then turned and headed back to Ocean Boulevard.  I got part of the way back and then took my shoes off and walked on the beach back to the hotel.  I came back and relaxed on the balcony a bit.  My friend and I went to North Myrtle Beach.  We went to Tuesday Morning and I got three more rolls of the washi that I liked so much.  I also found some other goodies.  A package of Halloween stickers and some craft tiny clothespins.  After leaving there, we headed to King's Famous Pizza for dinner.  That was delicious as always!

Since we were right near the Goodwill, we went there.  I got a MB shirt and a package of full page labels.  I can use them to make my own stickers at home. YAY!  There were twenty left in the box.  I'm pretty sure when you buy a small package of them, they come ten to the pack and they are over $10 a pack!  Crazy!  These were $1 Yes!  We went to the Dollar General that is next door to the Goodwill and got a few things and then headed back down the strip.  There was another Starbucks that I hadn't been to yet, so he swung by there and I went in and got myself a latte. :D  He wanted ice cream, so he stopped at Burky's.  We've eaten at Burky's before.  It's pretty good.  He got ice cream and then we headed down to the road where Market Common was.  We had seen the sign before and looked for it but didn't find it.  We found it tonight!  It was late, so most everything was closed, but at least we found it. :P  It has a lot of high end stores, it seems.

So we then headed back towards the room.  We saw a miniature golf place that looked pretty cool.  We went and one sign said they closed at 10:30, the sign on the building said 11.  The lady said they closed at 10!  It was about 9:32 by then, so we didn't get to play.  Phooey! We headed back here and I did my workouts.  I'm posting this and then I'm going to take my nightly beach walk.  I'm really tired, but I still want to at least walk a little bit. ^_^
