More Dogs

Sometimes our neighbor's dog (the huge golden retriever) comes and plays with our dogs too. It's like a big fur reunion.

Myrtle Beach SkyWheel

Well, now that they have sadly torn down our iconic Pavilion, they have erected a big ferris wheel in its place, called the SkyWheel. It's supposed to be the biggest ferris wheel in the US.

This wheel is not really worth the money ($12 adults, $8 kids, 3 spins around, 30 minute wait in line) but since they tore down that Pavilion, I guess this will have to suffice.

This was taken up close.

Couldn't take any pictures of the city inside the ferris wheel because the air conditioning was fogging up the windows. That pretty sucked.

It's great to be a kid

 Sunshine Saturday at Myrtle Beach Primary School: Waiting in line for the inflatable rides.

I'll admit it, even I wanted to try this slide out!

Everyone has a dog in MB

That's Diamond

 That's Hunter. We got Hunter to keep Diamond company.

Ducks Everywhere

For a free, fun time with your kids, bring a bag of old bread crumbs and let your kids fatten up our local ducks! They are all over town. These geese (duck? I'm no avian expert) live at Market Commons.

These ducks live at the little pond near Seaboard Commons.

Sometimes you will find a line of cars stopped, and you are wondering which idiot is holding up traffic....don't worry, we're just waiting for a duck to finish crossing the street!

Market Commons!

After raining all week it was a thrill to see the sun this weekend! Here is Market Commons, one of my favorite spots in Myrtle Beach. There are cools shops and bars here, but for me the main attraction are the big sprawling outdoor areas where you can relax, have picnics, or take a leisurely walk.

Where Myrtle Beach People Shop

Forget that overpriced mall. OK, we shop at the outlets too, but when we're too lazy to drive there, we come here: this is Seaboard Commons on Seaboard Street between 10th Ave. North (or Joe White Ave.) and 21st Ave. North, right in the middle of town! Seaboard Commons has a Target, Ross, World Market, TJ Maxx, Le Nails, and AC Moore. Next to it is also: Lowes, Sams Club, Office Max, Pier 1, One Stop Party Shop, and I'm probably forgetting a few stores here...

Speaking of Target, what kid doesn't love that $1 section in the front?! It's the one place where kids can always ask for stuff and never hear the word "no."
