Around this time each year, we head to Myrtle Beach for a quiet family weekend. You couldn’t pay me to visit during the summer when it’s unbelievably crowded, but late January or early February is the perfect time to go. Admittedly, the weather can be cold and a handful of activities or restaurants are closed for the season, but there are few tourists, hotel rates are very inexpensive, and it’s a nice break to keep the winter “blahs” from setting in!
We spent a good bit of time at our hotel reading and relaxing. We fit in a little bit of shopping – and of course, we had to check out a few restaurants! We had Mexican food, tasty pizza, and huge, delicious burgers! (Yeah, not such a good trip for the waistline, but I did walk on the beach twice!)
My 11-year-old enjoys collecting seashells, so she always joins me for my beach walks.
We got home in time last night to get unpacked – and I was able to get several loads of laundry done, too, so I have a head start on that today!
Hope you found a few moments to relax this weekend! I’ll be back on Wednesday to talk about my recent step outside my comfort zone.
