Last Wednesday morning, around 2am, Morticia and I arrived at the beach. Even though we were tired and weary from our everyday lives, we felt a relief. We were at the beach. It was time to have fun. Misery and trouble could not find us here. Or so we thought.
Morticia's son, Travis, had purchased a new car. She got up that morning to go help him iron out some insurance issues. When she returned, we walked over to the Airport Diner. They have a great breakfast there. We sat down and I was eagerly awaiting my grits. Then...my phone rang. The health inspector was in my store and I was a the beach. The waitress picked that moment to deliver my grits. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy them at that time.
We went back to Morticia's place and I was on the phone for some time, back and forth, with the store. The inspection turned out okay but, it had taken some of the um-mph out of the day.
With all that behind us we decided to go to the beach. The sun was shinning, clear blue skies. A gorgeous day, at least for a while. Usually, we go to Garden City but, this time we went to Myrtle Beach. We payed our 2 dollar parking, started toward the water.
That's when we heard it. The sound of thunder. Within minutes we were walking on the beach in the rain. We had a great time although, I was a bit worried about my camera and several of my shots had blurry spots from the rain drops. I was actually glad I had a filter on it so the lens itself wasn't getting hit.
As the rain got harder we ended up under the pier. This too was fun. I had so much fun trying to get different shots of the water. The backside you see reflected in the water is Morticia's. LMAO
After this, we headed back toward the car (Moticia's NEW car). Wet but, happy. We had decided to go to The Palace Theatre to see "The Magical Spirit of Ireland". We called up to find out what time the show began and were informed that we needed to purchase our tickets in advance because this show filled up fast every night. We were only minutes away from the theatre so, wet and bedraggled, we stopped on by.
The inside was gorgeous. An amazing place. We were told we could take pictures of the inside of the Palace but, not of the show. We had a little time before the show began so, we went back home, checked out our camera's to make sure the rain hadn't caused any damage and had a bite to eat. Got cleaned up and off we went.
If you ever get to Myrtle Beach, this is one show worth seeing. The dancers were fantastic. The Irish Tenors, fabulous. The whole group was very friendly. We had a chance afterwords to talk with them and grab a few shots. Or, at least, Morticia did. When we got to the theatre and I opened my camera bag, I realized, my camera was still sitting on the kitchen table.
And this was just the beginning. There was also the death of a hat. The crazy lady on the beach and an interesting tale about fried green tomatoes.
Okay, so I had to play a bit. LMAO. I also did this in black and white but, It needs more tweaking.
