Well then, good morning from Myrtle Beach! I am up and thinking about going for my walk. Not sure where I'm going. Probably to the pavilion area, but I'm not sure. I'm coming down with a cold dammit. UGH. That sucks! I would take the day to rest, but it's our last full day here. I'll rest tomorrow when I'm home!
We had a doozy of a storm last night. That dark sky that I posted yesterday was just a warm up. After that, the sun came back out and it was nice. Then, the real storm hit. It was insane out there. There was lightning (the streak kind too) and heavy rain and really strong winds. The front of our room (the part I'm in) was leaking! It was raining so hard with the winds, that the water was coming through the window and door. My floor is soaking wet still today. It was nuts.
The funny thing is, that I was about to go out to 17 to located a mailbox to drop a few things off when I heard this loud thunder. I went out on the balcony and realized that I was very glad I didn't go out! After the storm passed, I gave it a chance to completely be gone, and I walked down the beach to the pavilion area.
The beach was mostly deserted, which was nice, but the boardwalk area behind the pavilion was too! I had a pair of flip flops in my backpack and went up and put them on and went to the Gay Dolphin and walked through. I then walked back around and to the beach. The area down there that is usually booming at night was practically deserted. It was wild. I saw no one else on the street but a group of about four or five. In the Gay Dolphin, there was only one couple shopping besides me! So weird to have the whole store pretty much to myself.
I walked back here and came in and got settled in for the night. I'm going to eat something and then head out. I want to go back to the pavilion area. (Hopefully it won't be too crazy down there with the Sun Fun thing going on.) I might even stop in at the ocean front Starbucks. :P
Here are three pictures from last night. Two during the storm and one of the Skywheel. It was lit up, but it wasn't running. They must have shut it down during the storm and just didn't open it back up.
