After our soggy days in the Smokey's we were looking forward to fun in the sun at Myrtle Beach. You know hang out all day at the beach get our garbage sacks full of wet clothes and gear dried out in the sun, that kind of thing. Well Myrtle Beach would have none of it. It continued to rain for another two days. We pulled into a lake at our campground and campsite. Water everywhere and coming down in buckets with no relief in sight to get the camper setup, more wet clothes.
So instead of the beach, the next day we hit the town while it rained and got tickets for Medieval Times for the evening. We all had a blast at Medieval times so that raised our sprites a bit after a pretty gray and depressing day (week). The next day was our last day at this site and it was dreary and cool, the red flags were out in force with alerts of a strong coastal current. We waited out the morning around the camper and then figured if we want to get in the Atlantic this was our last chance so we decided to do a little swimming anyways with rules for the boys not go in below their knees (which switched to their waist after a few minutes, they're still short after all). Everyone had a lot of fun but it was really murky water which freaked Becky and I out (sharks?!?). After a hour or so everyone was getting pretty cold so we called it good. Here are some pictures from our stay at Myrtle Beach State Park.
