The Boardwalk & Piers, Myrtle Beach

Earlier this week Paul and I spent an afternoon on the new boardwalk in Myrtle Beach. The construction started just before we left here last spring. We parked at 2nd Avenue Pier where the boardwalk begins and walked north to 14th Avenue Pier, where it ends. Although called a boardwalk, some of the pathway is concrete.

I did a little shopping at The Gay Dolphin. When I was in Myrtle Beach in the '80s with my sister, we stayed at a hotel in this area and we often popped into this shop to browse. If one is looking for "sea related" items such as shells, candles, pictures, etc., this shop just might have what you want. I would just hate to have to do inventory in this shop!

There is such a nice view of the ocean and dunes along the walkway.

The new 2nd Avenue Pier has a restaurant and bar so we went in to see what they offered, other than a great view. When I asked for the drinks menu I was shown a surfboard on the wall. We stayed for a beer and enjoyed the view before stepping out on the deck to take a few pictures. With such a nice deck, we look forward to another visit when it is warm enough to sit outside.

  1. One of these days I'm going to walk there with you! The Gay dolphin will be must see as well.

  2. What gorgeous views of Myrtle Beach, Marilyn and Paul. Do you not, though, miss the weather in New Brunswick? Ha ha!! Though it is no colder than about 4 near Vancouver, snow is predicted for B.C.'s Fraser Valley this winter. Becky will love it!

    From our home to yours, Paul and Marilyn, the three of us wish both of you a very Merry Christmas. Joyeux Noel!
