I am currently riding in the car towards my home to pick up my dog after 4 days in Myrtle Beach for Spring Break. The one day we got on the beach this is what it looked like…
You’re wondering why no one is out there playing in the sand and the water, right? Well, the highest temperature we saw on the whole trip was 60. Keep in mind we slept in tents and the wind was brutal. But that didn’t stop us from having a good time. The motto of the trip became “we are haveing a good day” with a slight sense of sarcasm due to the miserable weather. However aside from the weather situation we had a good time.
Day l: (March 10th) Arrive at 11:30 p.m.ish after several missed exits and minor arguments. Set up and went to sleep for the night.
Day 2: (March 11th) Woke up to sunny 61 degree weather. Cooked hamburgers for lunch and finished setting up our camp. Drank… played on the beach. For dinner that night since the temperature had dropped significantly we ate at a restaurant called Bimini’s. Highly recommend it! There was live music and a cool atmosphere it also was fairly inexpensive for a seafood restaurant. We then had to go buy traps to cover our tents and space heaters for the impending monsoon that was actually the south part of a nor’easter snowstorm! Then we sat in a tent with heaters and played Cards Against Humanity and drank.
Day 3: (March 12th) Woke up approximately 10:30 a.m. to SNOW next to the beach ( I mean literally on the beach, our campsite was probably 50 feet from a beach access point). Obviously it was cold so we all decided to get up and go to brunch at Waffle House and then went back and swam in the heated indoor pool and drink. Then we decided to go to Margaritaville and eat dinner. Then we walked around alittle in Broadway at the beach which was a lot of shops and rides and restaurants that are actually really fun in warmer weather. We also went to the boardwalk for a while! (They have an awesome candy store there.) After that we went back to the campsite played a little more Cards Against Humanity and drank some more.
Day 4: (March 13th) We woke up around 11 a.m. and made pancakes and bacon. We all got dressed up and packed up a bit so it would take us too long the next morning. We went to dinner/ happy hour at a place called Nacho Hippo (highly recommend it and it has great prices!) and then we all went to see a movie. The girls went to see Table 19 ( Not recommended) and the boys went to see Logan (idk they said it was great though). Then we were all hungry again so we went to Steak and Shake and laughed and talked!
Day 4: (March 14th) About 5 am the wind got crazy and our easy-up tent ended up upside down on the other campsite which was startling to wake up to. We broke it down in about 35 degree weather and then went back to bed until about 9 and the got up and packed. And so here we are now writing this as I’m passing through Columbia South Carolina.
Spring Break 2K17! Kinda a success unfortunately no one actually got hammered like your supposed to on spring break in college but we will try again this summer hopefully!
