On vacation

We got to Myrtle Beach on Saturday. It is soooo hot down here :) We love it! We stopped overnight to break up the long trip and it was so much better. We had a nice roomy room and a good dinner, it made it so much easier to continue with the long ride. We hit a few traffic jams, but we made it. The room is very adequate, the beach is quite nice. Yesterday we had a half a day of thunderstorms and it's storming right now. I don't mind it if it's at night, I just hope it's going to be sunny again in the morning. The beach was a ton of fun this morning, we bought a boogie board and took turns with it.
Last night we had dinner at Carrabbas,

at first I didn't realize that it was that famous place that Sean Hannity always talks about. It was packed! The wait was really long but the food was good! Doesn't it look cool with those trees on the roof?
Tonight we went to Kono, which is a Japanese Steakhouse. That was good too. I would really like to go to one of those Seafood Calabash places, maybe tomorrow.
We drove to downtown Myrtle Beach this afternoon (I guess that's what you'd call it) There is a new boardwalk, which is nice, not too much there really.

I always think it should be more like Virginia Beach, I really liked all the entertainment they had a every corner and that you didn't have to drive around to everything. Oh well....
Gabby misses Karate, so she did a few moves on the beach tonight. It was interrupted by thunder and lightning though.
It's so good to get away, Phil is sleeping so much better, that alone makes it worth it :)
We are making breakfast and lunch in the room, since we have a small kitchen. It's actually quite convenient. The other night I caught this moon shot, I had never seen a moon look like that. I just happened to look from the balcony and there it was
Yesterday I got a few shots of lightening, it's a little blurry, but it was my first try

I actually scrapped too. This one I just did today :)

This one I did in the Hotel room where we stopped on the way down here

and some more...

I am also caught up with my 365 pages, here is the rest of them

that really made me happy! I still have to do last week's, but I will probably wait til we get back home. Okay, everybody, I promise I will stop by your blogs when I get back :)
