After the Retreat, Jon had a week of leave so we decided to stay in Myrtle Beach for a week! We checked into our new hotel that was fantastic! We spent the week relaxing at the beach, Shopping, and eating at some fantastic restraunts! Monday we spent the day at Broadway at the beach shopping and exploring! We had lunch at Margaritteville, then we went to the aquarium! It was great! After the Aquarium we shopped the rest of the day and then had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe! Tuesday was my Birthday and we layed on the Beach and then went shopping at the outlets before going to Medival Times! The rest of the week consisted of the Beach, Fishing, and relaxing in the many pools! More Pics to come!
