Easter Sunday on Surfside Beach

This is the start of the busy time of year at Surfside Beach, so the Police are patrolling more often.

There was a lot more activity on the beach today.
Children making sand castles, kites in the air, footballs being tossed
and the braver ones were in the water.
A nice surf today.  Lots of rolling waves...
This little guy was playing out on the beach in front of our condo.
He was busy picking up shells and filling his yellow bucket,
maybe an Easter present.

We enjoyed a stroll and saw

A swan in a nearby pond
Interesting blooms on the pine trees
Potential seaglass?

This was our last group lunch at the Fowler Dining Room for this season.  Paul and I will be going back next week to enjoy one more dining experience before we leave here.  We are already making plans to dine there again next November.

Burke's Day

It must be Monday...
For those of us here in the Myrtle Beach area, and for anyone whom has visited with us here, knows that Monday is known to us as "Burke's Day".
The Burke's Outlet store here in Surfside Beach is our favourite discount store to shop in.  Although it is already an outlet store with great prices, they have two discount days with an additional 15% off; Mondays are for those 50+ in age and Fridays are for those 49- in age.  It is a Bealls franchise store which is very well known in the Florida area.
We only have one Monday left here in Surfside Beach for this season, so do I make a last visit to Burke's?  My duty is almost used up and my suitcase is more than full...
