I have become something of a professional vacationer lately. I’ve hopped from Martha’s Vineyard straight to Myrtle Beach where I’m beach bumming all day and dancing all night with friends from Albany. While both destinations may be East Coast hot spots, they could not be any more different. It’s quite the contrast.
This is probably my seventh time here over the years; a recurring vacation spot thanks to my bestie Kristin’s family condo. I’m so happy to be back! Myrtle Beach is definitely a guilty pleasure.
Myrtle Beach is all about the condos. While they might not be as subtle at thatch-roof cabanas, they are a definite part of the landscape here.
I went for a long beach walk and came across almost a dozen dead stingrays washed up on the beach, a phenomenon covered by the local news. While I was sad to see some of my favorite little sea creatures in that state, it was interesting to get a close-up look!
