Spring Break in Myrtle Beach

A great deal, some days off, the beach, what a perfect combo. We were in need of some R&R and what better place to get that then the off season at the beach. We didn't have to fight crowds, we had the beach to ourselves, and traffic was minimal. Growing up, this is one of the beaches we went to as a family. It was fun to go there with my own little family this time.

The favorite activity on the trip had to be combing the beach for shells. Cora loves to look for them and has quite a collection. She and my Mom could spend all day looking for shells if we'd let them.

Myrtle beach is in South Carolina but is really close to the border of North Carolina. There is a little town called Calabash right near the border and it is famous for their seafood spreads. They also have restaurants down in SC so of course we had to go partake. A buffet of Shrimp, crablegs, and every imaginable seafood dish. I was in heaven.
This is Cora looking a little crabby @ the Giant Crab Calabash. She was done taking pictures I think.

All in all we had a wonderful time. Our little taste of summer in spring.
