This week is Bike Week in Myrtle Beach. That means there are thousands of motorcycles cruising the streets around here. Most of the action is north of us, so we just headed south… just below Brookgreen Garden and launched the kayak at Sandy Island boat ramp.

The weather was beautiful, a pleasant 75 degrees with very little wind – perfect for kayaking. We paddled towards Sandy Island, across the Inter-coastal Waterway.

We have never been able to paddle over there before as the wind and wakes were always too strong. However, it was an easy paddle and we got all the way across to see the few building on the edge of Sandy Island. As usual, Nancy snapped quite a few pictures, but accidentally deleted them while downloading ;o(( Oh well, we will get more the next time!!
Later this afternoon, we had a call from Steve Conrad, one of our RV-Dreams friends. He and his wife Evin were in Myrtle Beach tending to family business. I gave them directions to our home and they came to visit for a couple hours before heading home to Winston-Salem, NC.

We had a pleasant visit and swapped stories about the problems we are having trying to sell our houses, what RV’s we are looking at buying and how we are dealing with family issues. We have many similarities to our lives right now. Steve and Evin are very nice people and we are thankful to count them as friends. Our visit was short, but as always, we find lots of subject to laugh about. Today was no different… can’t wait until our visits occur out there on the road somewhere!!
