Back from the Beach

Back from a wonderful week with my girlfriends in Myrtle Beach!

We hit a fair amount of Memorial Day weekend road traffic on the way down, so it took almost 20 hours to get there, but it was worth it. Beautiful weather (almost) all week. I spent most of my mornings on the beach, and we also spent a few days looking for alligators, visiting various fun bars, restaurants and nightlife areas, and took a day trip down to Charleston (my personal favorite part). I thought I’d quickly share some of my instagram photos from the trip (I will likely do a follow-up with camera photos later, because there was lots of other fun stuff I didn’t capture on my phone):

The Bostonian

We stayed in a condo owned by the father of one of my girlfriends. I love that we drove from Massachusetts and stayed in the Bostonian.

View From Condo

A view of the beach from our third floor condo.

The Four of Us

All 4 of us getting ready to go out for drinks (and a big plate of nachos) early in the week!

Nutella Banana Crepe

On Tuesday (I think), two of us went in search of WiFi and ended up at this really great frozen yogurt/smoothie/crepe place. I got a Banana Nutella Crepe. It was very delicious and I had leftovers for three days! I daydreamed about opening a yogurt/smoothie/crepe place back home.

Humidity and Me

It was pretty hot and super humid all week so I had a lot of bad hair days, as you can see, haha. You can also kind of see the nice view from our front porch and how bright and sunny it was most days!

Ice Cream Waffle Cone

Ice cream, of course! Key lime on top, Oreo cookie on the bottom (and a bright orange manicure I’ll share this week)!

Trying on Masks

Before a dinner at Dick’s Last Resort, we found this great curiosity shop that had a wall full of fun masks. I wish I could have tried them all on! I need to find an occasion for such a thing.

DC_Traffic

On our way home, the GPS routed us through DC on 395 which turned out to be a horrible thing. We got stuck in traffic for over an hour. It was nice to pick out the Washington Monument (far, far away in this picture) and the Capitol building, and various other buildings on the skyline while we sat in traffic, though.

Radar the Skunk Lover

It took about 15 hours to make the trip home. I arrived back here at 1am to a dog that had been sprayed by a skunk the night before. Eww. The home remedy we tried (peroxide, baking soda and dish soap) didn’t work so well so he went to the groomer today. D managed to keep the skunk smell out of the house so I was very thankful for that! Now Radar is skunk-stink free, clean, fluffy and even has a new collar and ID tag for his troubles.

Radar's New Collar

It was really nice to get away for a while and top up my Vitamin D levels. I really needed the vacation. But it’s back to the grind tomorrow! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
