Its been very long since myself and my wife went on a vacation together - alone, it doesnt meant we havent been touring. Yes we did, but with other family members too. Longing for an opportunity since she landed in US to go out, one more reason is there too. I bought a BMW car and wanted to take it for a longer ride. It took almost a month's time before we could travel because of the project schedules and late hours working.
As usual, asked friends who have been to Myrtle beach, and did a blogsearch for "Myrtle Beach" "Stayed In" "Photography" related terms and got a idea of what I wanted to do for two days and kind of came up with a plan.
Wanted to start from Raleigh around 5 in the morning so that I could reach the beach by 8.00 or 9.00 in the morning, after spending a while in the beach wanted to can check in to the hotel by 11.00. But we have started around 8.30 from house and we reached there by 11:30 in between we had some brunch in KFC, near Myrtle Beach.
When we reached there it was really very hot out there in the beach, my wife said lets go to the hotel. But that was my first beach in US, kind of a dream come true - after watching so many Hollywood movies. I dont want to go to hotel then, I wanted to photos - you know what kind - convinced my wife spending half an hour before checking in. But as the day progressed the climate became very good and we stayed there in the beach upto 3.00 in the afternoon. Then we checked in to the hotel, we stayed in Quality Inn, decent hotel. Its not on the shore - still we could easily see the sea from the the room balcony.
