North Myrtle Beach

Since our resort once again doesn't have wireless, Chris and I are now sitting at a smoothie place down the street that offers free wireless. It's pretty cold in here, so I'm going to make this a quick one. lol

Our resort, despite it's internet deficiencies, is gorgeous. Our suite has 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms. haha It's soooo great.

Yesterday, we went to the beach. We were out there for not much more than an hour, yet today, I am pretty much as red as a lobster. The back of my legs are so burnt that it actually hurts to walk. Needless to say, we're taking it easy today.

After the beach, we ate dinner--let me rephrase that--we ate a feast at this place called the Crab House. Oysters Rockafeller, lemon sea bass with crab orzo, crab cakes, fried fish, and plenty of fruity drinks with names like Green with Envy and Tidal Wave. It was amazing. We were soooo stuffed afterward, it was all we could do just to stumble over the Ripley's Aquarium. All of this was in the giant boardwalk-like area, called Broadway on the Beach. The aquarium was amazing. You walk through this glass hallway and the fish and sharks swim all around you. There was even one huge sawfish thing that was just hanging out on the glass top. But I'll let the pictures speak for themselves now.

Also, as we were walking over to the aquarium, we noticed this huge group of fish, waiting for tourists to give them food. lol
