Our Friend, Harold Bessent, at the Carolina Beach Music Awards
This trip to Myrtle Beach was from
November 11 through 17, 2009 with the primary purpose being to attend
the 15th Annual Carolina Beach Music Awards and enjoy the many related
activities occurring in that period. In some respects we probably over
enjoyed ourselves with way too many late night - make that early morning
- bedtimes. After this trip we felt like we needed another to do
nothing but just relax and rest (and as out of character as that might
be, we keep promising ourselves we'll do just that one of these first
days). We did have one glorious afternoon when we spent several
hours doing nothing but sitting by ourselves on a deck by the beach
talking and staring out at the ocean - much more of that would indeed be
nice and most welcomed.
However, let there be no doubt, as busy
as we were, we had a wonderful time.
Again, in recognition and consideration
of our readers' various interests in our write-ups, we've divided this
one into two major segments. Those of you beginning with our general
activities involving topics such as the travel, weather, accommodations,
and dining can easily move to the next major segment or skip to the
photo album for the trip without returning to this introductory page.
And, of course, there's the ever present Table of Contents which
provides an easy means to go directly to specific topics of interest.
Hope you enjoy what we have to share.
