I mentioned the other day we are having major work done at our house. It’s been going on five weeks now, and we are seeing progress. The living and dining rooms are done, except for a few minor things. We’ve got a working television finally. The kitchen has progressed but still behind. There’s a few floor tile that still needs to be mortared in. They had miscalculated the quantity and fell short. So that will be put in when the backsplash behind the countertop is mortared on. The cabinets are all in and the counter top is on. We have electric power and ceiling spot lights in, and the microwave is operational. But still need the plumbing completed and the gas line hooked to the oven.
I also mentioned I took the family away for nearly a week to get away from this. We drove down to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. It’s a ten hour drive, but we broke the trip into two five hour legs in both directions.
I don’t know what’s so special about Myrtle Beach. It was a nice beach. It was not as nice as our trip to Ft. Walton Beach Florida earlier in the year. That was the purest beach I had ever seen. I would say Myrtle Beach was as nice as the New Jersey Beaches, which are also very nice, but I could have gone to the Jersey Shore with just a couple of hours driving. I guess what makes Myrtle Beach renown is their golf courses. I don’t golf, so I guess that allure was wasted on us. Still we had a nice time. The first day we got there the weather was brutal, something like 95F (35C) and 100% humidity. But it rained at night and the weather was more pleasant, though still hot, the remaining three days.
Here are some pictures of Matthew at the beach.
With his Batman Beach towel;
No we didn’t dig this hole. We found it and took it over.
The water was so warm. I would love to live near an ocean beach with water that warm.
And Matthew just loved the water, though he was afraid to go above his belly.
