South Carolina Vacation: A Beach Walk and Lunch with Friends

Bob went for a walk the morning of Thursday, February 10th, leaving the house around 6:30 am.  He walked to the beach and back home. Bob saw the sunrise at the beach.

I saw the sunrise from the front porch of our Airbnb “Seaside Cottage”.

We picked up our grocery order at Walmart at 8:00 am.  We drove back home and put away the groceries.  For breakfast we ate instant oatmeal and fresh fruit.  It is a gorgeous sunny morning.  I sat on the front porch and enjoyed the sunshine, as well as the heat from the sun, while drinking a cup of tea.

Around 9:15 am we drive to the Surfside Beach library.  Bob printed the Erie Insurance auto insurance card from the website.  We left the new card at home, and he wanted to be legal.  

From the library we drove to the post office, where we mailed Valentines Day cards to our two granddaughters.

We returned home from the post office, where we rested and relaxed until 10:20 am.  At that time we drove to our friends Marge and Neil’s condo at One Ocean Place in Garden City Beach.

You can see the Surfside Beach Pier (under construction) and Myrtle Beach beyond the pier.

The four of us went for a walk on the beach.

After our walk we drove the short distance to River City Cafe in Surfside Beach.  All of us rode in Neil and Marge’s car.

River City Cafe is known for their burgers.  Burgers is what all four of us ordered for lunch.

The River City Cafe burgers are huge!

After lunch we drove to our Airbnb “Surfside Cottage” to show Marge and Neil where we are staying.  

Soon we were back in the car, driving back to One Ocean Place.  We parted ways at this time, making plans to possibly get together before the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Here is an interesting tidbit.  Back in Pennsylvania it is an approximate 20-minute drive to Marge and Neil’s house from our house. Here in South Carolina we are an 8-minute drive only from each other.  

Once we returned to our Airbnb, we were in for rest of the afternoon and evening.  We ate dinner at 6:00 pm.  Dinner was tuna casserole, green peas, grapes and chocolate pudding.

    What a nice day! The ocean front condo looks wonderful!! And the burger looks delicious! Good idea to get a Walmart order for your airbnb. The weather looks so very nice.

      We have been ordering groceries at Walmart for curbside delivery since 2020. I like the convenience, and I believe it says us money by doing so. We try to eat at “home” at least half of the time, when on vacation.
