Site 313, 50amp and water
We like the sites on the back row. It is just quieter and they seem to have a little more room between sites. There are some full hookup sites else where in the park, but they are in very congested areas. We are fortunate to have LARGE holding tanks, so a sewer connection is not critical.

Once we got set up, it was off to the grocery store. Traffic is terrible!!! The park entrance is on Business Hwy 17 , one of the busiest roads in Myrtle Beach. It took at least 10 minutes to make a left turn out of the campground;o(( We stopped at the produce stand just outside the park and then headed to Walmart to replenished our fridge and cupboards. We seemed to be able to go two weeks between fill-ups;o)) That's nice until you get to the checkout and have to pay;o(( But except for a visit or two to the little produce stand, we are set for the length of our stay!!
Once we got the groceries put away and had some dinner, I was beat. Hard to believe we had breakfast at Lake Wateree, moved to Myrtle Beach, got set up, did the grocery shopping, had dinner and there is still daylight left!! So I decided to just enjoy the rest of the evening from my relaxing spot;o))
Tuesday morning, June 19th, we were up and out walking early. This is the best time of the day as most campers are still sleeping!! We walked the State Park roads as it was high tide and walking in the soft sand is just too difficult.
Fishing Pier from a distance
Early Birds catch the FISH!!
View to the south - ocean was sooooo calm :o))
As we were leaving the fishing pier, we saw this enclosure and sign on the beach. They make a real effort to protect Loggerhead Turtle nesting sites. I guess they know when to remove the grate and fence in order for the baby turtles to make their way to the ocean :o))
Along the state park beach property we have seen about 6 of these grates and signs. There is a stiff fine for messing with these nesting sites !!!
As we finished our walk and headed back to the motorhome,
we passed some really pretty flowers :o)
After showers and breakfast, we headed to our post office;o))
We are so lucky to have good friends, Bill and Cris,
who are willing to accept our mail
until we change our residence to Florida in October.
