My Love of the South

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

A few weeks ago we drove down to my inlaws condo in Myrtle Beach for the week. We had such a fantastic time and it was a much needed week of R&R. Jeff and I have both been pretty unhappy in our jobs lately so we planned it on a whim and are so glad we did. The weather was a little cooler than usual, however, we still spent several days walking down the beach or laying by the pool. We also decided to drive an hour and a half down to Charleston,SC. Jeff and I had been enjoying the John Adams documentary on HBO so we were excited to do some historic sight seeing. Charleston is such a beautiful city and a great place to visit and explore. We walked all around downtown looking at all the beautiful old homes, we walked through Battery Park, and also had lunch at Bubba Gump's. Anyone who really knows me, knows how much I love the South. There is just something about the history, the warmer climate, and the way people treat each other in the South. It just seems so much friendlier and relaxed down there. Not to mention the Charlotte and Triangle areas of North Carolina both have booming economies and neighborhoods. The cost of living down there is also reasonable. I always ask Jeff half jokingly how much it would cost to move our new home down there. In all seriousness, if it weren't for our friends and family, we would seriously consider moving down there. Lucky for me, my inlaws have a fantastic condo in Myrtle Beach where we can visit anytime we want, and I can live vicariously through my visits. Enjoy the pics!

  1. It looks like you all had fun! I'm glad you made it to the South! I think Southerners are pretty nice folks as well (being that I'm a Kentucky girl). :-)

    P.S. DH and I watched the HBO Documentary "John Adams" as well. It was good!
