7/4-The drive down to Florence was fairly uneventful, little more traffic on 77 than I was expecting, great weather though. Stayed at Comfort Suites in Florence, very nice place, slept great (and I rarely sleep well at hotels).

7/5-Good breakfast at the hotel, then on to the beach. In town around 10, so we hit Broadway to kill some time. My girls abusing this poor cow... Image

Had a great lunch at Sweet Carolina's per recommendations on the forum. Checked on the room around 1 o'clock and it was ready. Dumped our stuff and my mom and I hit Food Lion (just me, the wife, our two kids and my mom on this trip). They were kind enough to let us use the 'store card' to get all the discounts, saved us a good chunk of change, I'm now a fan. Finished up the day with a light dinner and some swimming of course. Image

...condo's a little rough around the edges (Ocean Park Resort #1208) and could use some touch-up, no big deal. The view is awesome as we're on the top floor, and one of my favorite things to do is finish the day on the balcony with a cold beer and look at the stars and listen to the ocean. However, our balcony happens to be right under one of those big lights that shine down on the front of the building and completely illuminates our balcony...it SUCKS. Totally kills my nighttime, beer chugging, star gazing activities. Oh well...more later, as I'm being summoned to make pancakes.

7/6-Awesome sunrise this morning, cinnamon rolls for breakfast then off to the beach... Image

...swam till lunchtime, then a glorious nap...the girls are kicking my arse. After naps, off to dinner at Hamburger Joe's (great as usual). Usually grab dinner around 4:30-5 o'clock-ish to avoid waiting. Then to Barefoot Landing for some browsing. I could spend all day at Kryptonite (comic book/nerd store). My Chloe hamming it up... Image

Back to the condo to finish the night up with some delicious Shiner Bock on the (freaking bright) balcony. More to follow...

I am at the beach and I still took time to read your report. LOVED your pics. It just makes a trip report come to life. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your trip.

Your girls are adorable! I love the way big sis hold little sis's hand. Just as cute as can be.

Thanks for doing alive report. Everyone loves reading them.

I wonder if you complained about the distracting light they might have another room. Probably sold out this time of year. Tell them you will take a discount on your bill instead. It never hurts to ask 'cause if you don't ask, the answer will be no.

Looking forward to reading more.....

Thanks for the kind words everyone :)

7/7-Per our standard operating procedure, we hit the beach/pools from about 8am until noon, then lunch and naps. While we were sleeping, moms was kind enough to do the laundry and wash dishes, thank you moms.

Stayed in for dinner, spaghetti w/ Italian sausage and garlic bread...my kids will destroy some spaghetti, it's insane.

Then off to Murrell's Inlet to hit the Marshwalk and the fireworks...fireworks didn't happen because Chloe (the little one) was getting tired and a wee bit cranky...although the girls did get to meet this follow who was vacationing too..Image

Stopped at Books-a-Million so the wife could restock on reading material, then back to the condo for some ice cream before bed (Pistachio Ben & Jerry's, the best).

More later...

Ninja edit: Forgot the obligatory family shot. Hint: I'm the big ugly one.

7/8-...another beautiful day at the beach.
Image

Stuck to the pool with the girls today as I got a bit too crispy yesterday. Then lunch and naps as usual. The girls wanted pizza so we hit Mellow Mushroom...girls had been there before, but my first time. GREAT pizza, we even ordered an extra pie to take back to the condo to graze on later.

After dinner, we went to Broadway again so moms and the wife could do some shopping (so painful). Me and the little ones ran around, fed ducks, and engaged in general shenanigans.
Image

With shopping done (thank goodness), back to the condo to wind down with some leftover pizza, ice cream, and a cold beer. Yeah, weird, I know. More later...
