Last weekend, a week before we even knew about tropical storm Arthur, we were in Myrtle Beach, SC. We had driven by it along highway 17 when we moved to Topsail beach last Fall/Winter for my hubby's contract, but had never been there long enough to take time to visit the different restaurants and see the sea.
It was a beautiful, sunny day and the hibiscus was blooming everywhere.
I researched places to eat ahead of time on Pinterest, and found so many good reviews on the Sea Captain's House. It's a charming Cape Cod style restaurant originally built in 1930. It was once an oceanfront family vacation beach cottage. These days it has won more awards than any other Myrtle Beach restaurant.
It had beautiful views of the ocean and the interior has a nostalgic charm.
My hubby had the jambalaya, and I had the crab casserole. Both tasted good, and our waitress was very friendly.
Afterwards, we walked down to the beach...
...and it'd definitely easy to relax with views like this.
This young girl was learning to boogie board, she took awhile, but finally got it! We were talking about how fun a trip like this would be with our future family.
We went in the water a few times, and then sat back, relaxed and talked about all the exciting things ahead.
Calm ocean waves, sunny days and no sign of what's to come.
We have several friends at the beach this weekend, please keep them in your prayers. Hopefully tropical storm Arthur doesn't injure anyone or cause too great a damage.
Have a happy 4th of July weekend!
