(**UPDATED**)

Pictures being posted on FaceBook at CLICK HERE

Saturday - We left Saturday (Sept 15, 2012) morning (5am) and slept over in Wytheville.

Sunday - Arrived today at 330 at Compass Cove and got the exact same room as last year. They even fixed the drawer in the bottom of the stove that my wife broke last year :). Had a good drive. Took down the instructions here about continuing south from Winston salem. Updated out Garmin with the latest maps and sure enough, it already knew of this new routing. A little rain and fog today on the way but nothing long or major.

Monday - Had a busy Monday. Got in some shopping, beach and swimming, dinner at iHop and an evening game of mini golf at Spy Glass. We were going to do some more shopping at the beach stores for souvenirs but was surprised to find many closed for the day at 10. As we recall from last year, these places stayed open late. Didn't seem so last night.

Tuesday - Woke up on Tuesday to lots of rain. Very heavy at times. Took advantage of the rain and did an indoor activity. We went to Ripleys Aquarium. 3rd time for me to go there but it never gets old. Took many pictures and videos. Here's one of the Crabs, Matthew and MayAnn, Turtle, Shark and Fishies. (*more videos added*)

Wednesday - Slept in and went for breakfast buffet in hotels Compass Rose restaurant. Left mid afternoon and did more shopping, this time at 501 Tangers. Found the new Walmart north of there. Then went for drive south on 17 and drove through Murrells Inlet and Garden City. Walked through many souvenir stores. Finally decided around 8 we were hungry and tired so stopped at Applebees. What a full day. Sorry we missed 2nd Ave Pier :cry:

Thursday - Got up and headed for the boardwalk. Did the sky wheel and after missing the meet up and hearing so much about the 2nd Ave pier, we had lunch at the restaurant and then walked out onto the pier. Later, did more shopping and souvenir hunting south on 17 again. Dinner was at the Outback. Good food.

Friday - Matthew and his girlfriend did para sailing this morning. They enjoyed it and haven't stopped talking about it. Shopping and beach time, Dinner at the highly acclaimed Ultimate California pizza. Oh, it was sooo good. Finished the day/night with another walk on the boardwalk, an ice cream at Iggy's and a few pictures of the sky wheel at night. Video of Sky Wheel at night

Saturday - Had a lazy day today. Slept in, heard a lot of noise and saw the Shriner's parade going south on Ocean Blvd. Our corner suite has a wrap around balcony so I sat on the side and watched the parade. Family went down to the beach until about 2. Only went out today for dinner. Tomorrow's our last day :(

Great pictures. I hope that is the last of the rain. Enjoy your time at the beach.
