Myrtle Beach Report #1

After a ten hour bus ride and a one hour shopping spree at Kroger, we got to Myrtle Beach at about 1:15 AM on Thursday morning. By the time everyone got luggage and groceries into our condominiums, and the chaperones made sure the students were all in their rooms, we got to bed at about 3 AM. We woke up at 7 AM and had a nice day at the resort yesterday before going to the Hard Rock Cafe for supper and Ripley's Aquarium.

Our resort has six swimming pools and a huge stretch of oceanfront beach. So, when we are at the resort, the chaperones all spread out and watch kids swim. Some of the chaperones are slightly pink today and some of the kids are red. One girl who fell asleep on the the beach wins the Red Lobster award for worst sunburn ever.

Here's a photo of Joshua in the ocean yesterday. What you don't see here are the three girls who were with him.


Here are some of our students playing football on the beach, with some of the parents cheering for them - and watching out for the kids in the water.

Last night we all got a full night's sleep, so we're ready for the three concert bands and two jazz bands to compete today. Joshua is playing in the three concert bands and one of the jazz bands. His chops are going to be so sore he probably won't be able to talk this evening.

That looks like fun. What is the ocean temperature?

Wow, whats up with that? ^^^^^^

Stephen said...

Definitely a great lead! NOT!

How does something like this happen? Can this person be traced? Blocked?

Okay - I got rid of the rude spam comment #3.

Christian - I don't know what the ocean water temperature was. It was a bit brisk upon entry, but I adapted within a few seconds, so it could not have been too cold. The pool water was nice, probably in the high 70s, low 80s.

Oh! I missed the rude comment???? That's what you get for coming in late.

Looks like a fabulous resort and looks like the kids are having a blast!

This must have been tough, but if born with pleasure, bearable. You did a good job not to take a picture of Joshua with the girls together, such things makes boys think they are more attractive than they are, which makes them less attractive if you understand what I mean. I'm glad you had a good time and you are back again, and appreciate that instead of taking some days rest you switched on the blogs again. Admirable!
