What a night last night! Lots of very loud raindrops from the time we went to bed til we got up. In my case that was 4:00am. Raindrops on an aluminum roof that is a few feet from your head are VERY LOUD! However, even though I didn't get much sleep, since I was awake so early I got to take a very long hot shower since no one else was waiting for one -- at 5am :-)

We drove to Myrtle Beach today and found a campground on the beach (Lakewood Cpgd).....another pull-through level site -- life is good.

Our nephew moved to Myrtle Beach last summer to work on the Hard Rock Amusement Park that is being built. So our trip to Myrtle Beach is primarily to visit him. We went over to his house and took him to lunch at Joe's Crabshack (great coconut shrimp), walked around a tourist area called Broadway on the Beach (which has nothing to do with Broadway and is several miles from the beach), showed him our RV and then ended the day at the acquarium. It was a fairly nice day and we had a good time. Unfortunately I was tired from lack of sleep and my back was still sore.

We took Kevin back to his house, stopped at Wal Mart for more pain medication and then went back to spend some time at the indoor pool and jacuzzi. I'm hoping the hot water will help the back.

It turned really cold and windy tonight. It's supposed to get down in the 20s. The jacuzzi and heated pool felt really good :-)

Highlights today:
Coconut shrimp at Joe's Crabshack -- so bad for me, but oh so tasty :-)
Jere complaining to me about having to do all the driving -- it's only the second day of the trip -- this could be a long trip. I'm nowhere near ready to try driving this big thing.
Camping a few hundred feet from the ocean but being too tired and sore to walk on the beach :-(
