I'm actually going to do one. Yay! I also hope to put a picture I pick at random from my beach pictures. Let's see, so, like I said, I only found out on Tuesday that we were going down that Thursday. I spent Wednesday washing clothes and packing. I didn't sleep worth a damn on Wednesday night so I was extremely tired Thursday when we got there. We found our room very nice and clean. As I mentioned, it was a bit small, but it was perfectly fine. 10/10 we would both stay again. That first night, we went to Victoria's to eat and then got a few groceries. We'd brought soda with us so we only had to buy a bit of food for the room. We did that and then settled in.
That night I had a hard time sleeping again because of the pillows on my bed. They sucked. I always carry my feather pillow with me when I travel, so at least I had that. I had to double over my pillow on top of one of the ones they had to finally get comfortable. Their pillows were weird! I was tired on Friday too but luckily, we didn't leave the room. I spend a lot of balcony time as I did on the September trip. I had my beach chair out there and just camped out. That was nice. I was out there when I heard about Betty White and was so upset. I went in to tell my friend. It was so sad to hear. She was such a sweetheart and will be sorely missed by so many people. The rest of the day, I spend either on the balcony or in the room relaxing. I was able to watch the ball drop on ABC and did that. People were shooting off fireworks on the beach for a long time after that. The bad thing was, the fog had rolled in THICK that night and if the fireworks were not right next to the hotel or really close by there was no use to look. You couldn't see anything! lol We ordered two meals from DoorDash. One from Hungry Howie's and one from Charlie's Cheeseteaks.
So, Saturday, we went out to do our thrift and pawn shops. We found a new Goodwill we'd never been to, so that was nice. Sadly, the pawnshops he likes were closed. We did make it to four more Goodwills. Two in Myrtle, one in Surfside / Murrell's, and one in North Myrtle beach. I didn't get a lot, but I did get a few things. I found a Fossil bag in one Goodwill that had the key still on it and a bonus! Someone had bought one of the key and lock Fossil keychains and attached it to the bag too. Score! :D I was very happy to have that and the bag rang up a whole $2.00! Nice! We at that night at King's Famous Pizza in NMB and I got baklava to carry back to the room. YUM! I packed up that night and had everything ready for an easier day on Sunday.
Sunday we got up and ate some of the last of our leftover pizza and get our things together and checked out. We drove up to NMB and went back to Goodwill. We were looking for something my friend had seen the day before and told me about that I wanted, but sadly, it was gone. :( We headed on and went to Long's to the Goodwill there and then on. We stopped in Tabor City and got some fries and drinks at McDonald's there. We also stopped at the Sandwich hut in Rockingham NC.
We at in Reidsville, NC, and went to the Goodwill there. I found a black leather Fossil bag! :) Atter that, we headed home. All in all a nice trip. I got several fun thrifting items. My favorites are the Fossil keychain that I found on that one purse, and a nice Speck case for my iPad Mini! So, I finally did a Myrtle Beach trip recap. Yay! Now, let's share a random picture and hope it isn't one I've already shared. lol Ah, the fog. I never did show a good picture of that. It was much more ominous in person, btw!
Neat, yes? I like the way the hotel next door is the only light you can see.
