Myrtle Beach Vacation

A few pics to share with you all in this lull of mine. We vacationed in Myrtle Beach 2 weeks ago and of course my camera was by my side many of the days. I loved this rusty old lock. It has so much character. 

 You all know how much I love old chippy paint, well my heart started to flutter when I got under this pier and started looking at the nuts and bolts. The green on the wood is so pretty and the bolt looks like it has been there for a hundred years or more. Don't you just love it? I know I'm a little wacky but I do love it.
 This was my view from under the pier. It made me think of how comforting to know we are always watched over. The architecture is so neat under there. It's like a little chapel.
 This was our view from our condo on the 16th floor of the Sea Glass Tower. It was magical. Every night we watched the Sky Wheel lights change every second and the bungee towers on the right were always active. So many people being flung 300 feet into the sky and then that sudden drop back to earth and then back up again...and so on. Over and over. We could hear the screams from the excitement when our patio door was open.
                              I played around with the pier image and I really like how it came out.
 Yes we are a goofy bunch. From left to right toprow, our Daughter Alex and I, Alex, BIL Scott, Husband Jack, and niece Sarah, Bottom row left to right, SIL Lisa, our Daughter Alex and the rugged lock. We always have fun in shops with hats and masks. We can't help ourselves.

  1. Tammy your photos are breathtaking! I know EXACTLY what you mean about your heart fluttering when you see worn/distressed/rusty things - I guess I'm weird like that too ha ha!

    That's a lovely family portrait - your daughter is beautiful and you look gorgeous! I hope she had a fabulous birthday. Ah to be 20 again! :) x

  2. What a fun place to discover! I had a friend who used to live in Myrtle Beach- I always loved that name for some silly reason!
