7/10 Sunday, wake up and all the same pool routine, this was our last time in this pool for the year so we stayed a little longer than usual, but we were moving on to a bigger place which was neat. That night we got ready and headed to Wild Wing Cafe in BL. The wings here are the best, I love all the different kind of bbq they have. I was even courageous and tried some ones I would never think of only because Corine wanted them. We walked around Barefoot Landing again, and I bought a hat finally at Lid's there which was a hybrid of the 2 I seen on our other 2 shopping experiences. (keep in mind the pool area and when we eat are only the only times the whole group is together my brother, gf, and I usually split up after things like that) We then went to some more beach shops and called it a night.
7/11 Monday, move out day, and move in day at the North Beach Plantation. We had to be out of the Barefoot Resort by 11, which we were so we headed to BATB to hit up Margartivaville for lunch. I had the bacon cheeseburger and everything was very very good. My brother wanted to go get some new flip flops at a shop so he went with my parents as Corine and I headed down to find a gas station, then we wen tto the Tanger Outlets near the Walmart. The PacSun store is gone? I was also very close to buying a button down in the Vans store for $10 but forgot lol. My family was already at the Plantation but the room was not ready, so we just got changed and went to the pool area and went in the ocean a bit as we waited. Around 2 or 3 I think it was done, we were on the 8th floor in the building facing the ocean. We were supposed to be in the other building, but who cares I like this one better. We got dressed and settled in a bit then went for groceries at BiLo on Main Street. Got a lot of beer for the night, and then headed to Just Chicken to eat, as my family went to Taco Bell again lol. Got back around 9, watched WWE Monday Night Raw for a little then went down to the pool area. We met some nice people from Maryland there who we talked to throughout our stay.
7/12 Tusday is to be the ultimate lazy day as nobody really does anything. We laid around and then went down the pool area for what seemed like forever, went in the ocean, came up ate lunch repeat. My mother made a skettie dinner for us that evening. It was very good, and we just kind of laid around watched tv and kept going back and forth from the pool to the ocean and decided to go mini golfing, in which I won!
7/13 Wednesday, days certainly start flying by on vacation and I hate it. Same deal, we wen to the beach had a blast went in the pools and got ready to eat at Hamburger Joe's which is only right across the street. We stumbled upon this place last year and it is rather amazing. The gold wings are to die for. I give everything 2 thumbs up, this may be my favorite place to eat athe beach as of right now. After we ate we cruised around for a bit then headed back to the condo. Just walked around a bit then fell asleep early I think lol.
7/14 Thursday...the day before the last day, don't want to think about that. Same beach deal alllll day. But when we came up for lunch my father offered to pay for all of us if we went on the banana boat as they were doing it right in front of our builidng all week. 20 minutes later and there we were. The ocean was very rough this day and our driver said it was the best day to come out, for some reason he took out out way further than he did other people. I asked him how far we were and he said close to 4 miles off shore, which looked crazy. On the way back in he set us up so a wave hit and my brother and Corine both fell off which made me fall off due to the shift of weight. I struggled and wanted to get back on that boat as fast as I could and couldn't I was so scared. The driver then helped us up and we were back on our way in. We then met up w. my parents in th epool sat around for a while then went up and ordered Papa John's again, lazy night afterwards.
7/15 Friday, the worse day mentally. We wanted to do something neat, we had no more beer so we drove to the gas station right outside the plantation and got these man cans of Joose, they were very gross but hit you rather quick. We drank them in the sun as we laid out, not a good idea. Friday is bittersweet as it is th elast day, but we get to go out at the Outback Steakhouse. We went in the pools and ocean for the last time, went up got ready and headed out there. Didn't wait too long, but our food was great, I have no idea how I eat so much when I'm there, I surpass my limits. We went to a few beach shops then called it a night and packed got ready for the dreaded ride home.
7/16 We didn't leave til about 11 thinking all the traffic would miss us, but we were wrong. We sat in Virginia on 95 for 2 hours and only moved 4 miles, this was horrible. We stopped a whole lot, took a different route home, and didn't get back into Frackville til about 130 am...not doing that again.
I hate leaving this place, and hope to relocate after I finish my degree. Any good jobs down there for someone with a BA in Political Science and a minor in Public Administation? I also want to get my real estate license, and maybe get into grad school, but my gpa is not the best
