Myrtle Beach September 13-15, 2019

Friday, Sept. 13, 2019

Left home at 2pm and arrived at cabin 9 around 6:45. We ran into traffic in Greensboro and Conway. After we started setting up we discovered that we left the cook stove at home. We went to Walmart and purchased a new one. Simple stew and rolls for supper and a small fire after the storm. 
We had a good nights sleep and awoke around 7am. There is no hot water here at the Kampground so we had to take cold showers.

We both slept late this morning and woke around 7am. We discovered that there was no hot water in the bathhouse and I had to take a cold shower. It woke me up but not something I care to repeat. When I arrived back at the cabin, Amy was up and ready for coffee. We finished off some coffee and left for the beach. We walked for about an hour along the shore. The waves were really rolling and I believe they were the largest white caps I have seen here. There were broken shells along the shoreline that have been washed up from the hurricane last week and the one currently churning in the Atlantic. We came on back to camp and started breakfast. We had beef sausage, eggs and fruit. I took Amy back to the beach after breakfast, so she could sit out in the sun. I came back to camp and read the newspaper, gathered some firewood and the just walked the campground.  Amy called and I picked her up at 1pm and then took her to a different bathhouse so she could get a hot shower. We at lunch which consisted of a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, pringles and cookie. Amy called her cousin, Susan Farmer, and we spent the afternoon with her and her husband at their beach house. When we left there we went to Bass Pro Shop where I was looking for a natural sharpening stone for my chuck box, but they did not have any. We came back to camp by a different route. We used 31 and that was nice because we missed all the traffic on 17. We started supper when we got back and it was a good one. Beef and shrimp with sweet potato cubes tossed in butter and cinnamon with green peas and roll. We got the campfire started and we had s'mores for dessert and they were good. We got into bed on time this night, 10pm.

We both slept well last night. I was up a little after 5 but laid in bed until the alarm went off at 6am. Amy is still asleep and I will let her rest while I enjoy the peace and quiet of a sleeping campground. I got Amy up around 7:30 and we had coffee, eggs, bacon and pancakes for breakfast. After breakfast, we broke camp and made ready to leave for home. We left around 10 am and headed for Tanger on 501, Amy wanted to see the Carolina Pottery store. We left for home about 12 pm and only stopped twice. Got home in time for the special service for licensing Justin to preach the gospel.
