Morgantown, WV, to Charlotte, NC, to Greenville, SC, to Charleston, SC, to Myrtle Beach, to Columbia, then Greenville, then Columbia again, and then Florida. Hmmm, maybe I should join Uber…
After saying goodbye to Charleston, I drove to Myrtle Beach to help my sister endure family vacation. We visited the labyrinth that is The Gay Dolphin gift shop; a myrtle beach tradition. The store has been there since 1946!!! I just love it.
The store is actually 5 stories… I think… But this tower climbs even higher. They used to let people walk all the way to the top for $1, but they don’t allow it anymore for safety reasons.
Another traditional Myrtle Beach landmark we visited was The Sea Captain’s House. The restaurant is actually a 1930s cottage that overlooks the ocean. The home has an interesting history, and the foods pretty great too. My mom went to it as a kid, so it’s pretty special.
Blogging about horticulture related adventures since May 2015.
I attended West Virginia University, where I graduated with a bachelor of science in Horticulture. My interests are horticulture, science, art, video, travel, and alligator wrangling.
