The Captain’s family has a condo in Surfside Beach, and when we lived in South Carolina, we were fortunate enough to visit a few times a year. This was my first trip to the beach, and we actually didn’t go to the water at all! We spent our time doing touristy things, like Ripley’s Aquarium, Broadway at the Beach, and eating lots of yummy seafood.
And of course there were cheese poofs on the roadtrip down there.
Annnnnd we had to use a paper map to get there, because it was 2005.
In just a few years, this place came to feel like a second home to me, and I miss it.
