I had a terrific week swimming, shopping, overeating, strolling the beach, playing putt putt golf, visiting the Aquarium, attending another famous stars impersonators show and playing pinochle and euchre into the wee hours with two nieces and one of their husbands. The other couldn’t make it.
We rented a 3 bedroom – 3 bath condo in a high rise on the beach in Garden City a short distance south of the city of Myrtle Beach.
Our condo was on the 7th floor in the middle. There are swimming pools and hot tubs at ground level on each end of the building which we took full advantage of. If you enlarge the photo you can see our balcony – it is the one in the middle of the building half way up with a red beach towel left on a chair to dry.
I took this awful photo from the balcony of our condo at dusk using my camera’s maximum zoom. The fishing pier in the foreground is exactly 1.2 miles away. In the distance is the murky skyline of Myrtle Beach. I performed all the magic I am capable of using Photoshop and produced the following slightly better result. Incidentally, this is not the pier shown in any of the following photos.
Here are a few of the photos I took during the week during my morning walks:
I took this photo and the following two on a morning walk. It looked like we were in for nasty weather but the day turned out beautiful. I really like this photo. It is just possible that I am learning about composition.
