Day 25 – Virtual Tour of Myrtle Beach


February 7th 2015 – Day 25 – Tourist Day (videos and pics)

The countdown begins…UGH!

I have to admit I really like being a tourist at times.  It was still “cold” for many but I found it perfect as usual.  Around 60F with a light breeze.  I am not really going to say much in this post.  I know I say that all the time but I am tired not only from walking about 10 miles but from dinner at Margaritaville and 2 beers.  Yep only 2. 

Tomorrow, Sunday it is supposed to get to 70.  I have checked the weather all along the east coast for the next week and I believe I can make it to Long Island.

Although it got busier as the afternoon came the beach and shops were not ever really busy.  I have said this so many times, coming to areas in the Winter that thrive in Spring, Summer and Fall has worked out so well for me.

My little bike all by itself

Good view of the Beach boardwalk

I liked this sign…Love Dolphins and well???  I am…

My new decal

OMG..this candy store is a diabetics NIGHTMARE…😵

After the beach I went back to my hotel, washed up and went for a walk around the shops inland a bit.  I walked a lot today and ended up eating way too much for dinner so had to walk more.  I am beat.  I can see everyone in this hotel getting all doled up to go out while I have PJ bottoms on and a t-shirt waiting for bed.  😉  Such a rider eh?

Cool place…upside down

Many of the rides are not open and some of the shops but still enough.  There is a BEST mini golf course ever here.  👍  All I did was walk around and people watch and went in and out of stores.  There are all these feeding stations for the fish in the lake.  Not sure how I feel about that.  You lean over and there are hundreds of fish begging for food as well as ducks.  Seems weird but then again I guess they are well fed.

I had an Epiphany today

While I was walking around a picture of my youth was posted on my FB personal page by one of my cousins in Florida.  Has to be part of this post…can you figure out which one I am?  Such a funny picture I bet I was maybe 9 or 10?

and…one more thing…I saw this T-Shirt in a store window.  Another flash back to my past.  I used to LOVE Farrah Fawcett and this shirt just killed me.  I had the poster and so did my brother.

So that was my day mainly on foot but also on the bike.  My mileage so far is…

Tomorrow I am heading to Williamsburg, VA to visit some friends.  Each day from now on I will pay close attention to the weather and I also need to find out if my parents long driveway will be plowed.  Now wouldn’t that be something?  I make it all the way to my parents drive and can’t get my bike up it?  Soon this incredible trip will be over and back to BC I go to finish up my life there.  Not sure when I will be actually moving but I hope by early Spring.  I need to find a job eventually too.

That’s it for today…another nice time as a soloist.

    That same Farrah Fawcett image…I had it on a pillow that I used to sleep with when I was in high school. Kind of strange for a gay boy, eh? Maybe not. 🙂
