Spring Break at Myrtle Beach



We had a great trip to Myrtle Beach last week thanks to some of our family members who provided accommodations for all the Howards. Here are some highlights:


BIKES:
  • The folks at Bicycle World got our Fujis in shape after 3 years in storage. But I had no idea a "tune-up" was so extensive or expensive! It was worth it, though.
  • We explored the Rail Trails system in Florence on 2 separate days. It was fun to ride from Ebenezer park to Magnolia Mall for lunch.
  • Security at the yet to open Freestyle Music Park don't like you riding in their parking lot.
  • The bikes provided us access to the old draw bridge that crosses the Intracoastal Waterway.
  • 2 F-16s flew right over us while we were out riding. I thought it was cool, but the noise was a little much for Harrison.
FOOD
FUN
  • Building a Corvette with Lil' Man at RideMakerz (it beats Build a Bear!)
  • Myrtle Beach State Park!
  • Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. I've made fun of this over the years, but Laura got us tickets and I enjoyed it a lot. The food was very good, and the horses and riders were excellent.
  • We took Harrison to the NASCAR 3D Imax movie-- he made it about 30 seconds. Loudness really gets to him.
R+R
  • The Ice Soldier by Paul Watkins. Now a new favorite author.
  • Pinks on Speed Channel and re-runs of The Office.
  • Indoor Pool at BlueGreen
  • Harrison's first experience with Swimmies
  • Kite Flying
  • An ambitious sand fortress with a channel to the Atlantic and vintage G.U.T.S figures.
