    Default Aha!

    I found a way to show off the pics from the competion at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach. Go to www.guidoatthebeach.com and scroll down. They have 2 galleries. You may need to click on the pic for better resolution, or maybe my pixels need to be reset on my computer?

    Now if I get a minute I will post a few personal pics with the help from two brothers, thanks guys.

    PS. I just finished looking at the pics on-line. I was looking at the FF's competing and the next thing ya know, I see my friends in the crowd and then I spot myself. That was funny!

    No need to get defensive!! I wouldn't consider that an "error"!

    Trust me.. I saw all those pictures. I was down at Broadway not too long ago.. good times.. that I vaguely remember.

    Did you ever figure out your picture problems?

    I actually haven't been out to the Outer Banks since then, but my roommate just got back from spending 10 days at Nags Head.. so I'll see what he says about the beach. Litchfield Beach/Pawley's Island is my beach of choice in SC (unless I want to go "socialize" with some friends at Coastal)... in fact, I'm going down to Litchfield next week!

    Pardon me for jumping in, but I was in Nags Head last Sept. (wow, almost year ago.......) and they had recovered pretty well, still had battle scars, but they were coming along. Hopefully I can get back down there next month, (the last 3 years a group of us go down in Sept.) We actually got chased home by Isabelle that year.

    I haven't been to Myrtle Beach since '04. But I love it down there. Hope to go back there soon too........

    Okay, I think I'm done now!

    O.K. - all this talk about my 2 "homes" so I hadda jump in.
    Lived in SW VA all my life but spent enough time in Myrtle Beach that I ought to have to pay taxes

    On a serious note though - my entire family has spent so much time at the Beach (at the same place) that the Head Bellman and some of the other staff know all of us by name on sight and if one of us is there he will ask who else is coming and how we're doing.

    My Grandpa will be headed down sometime this weekend for the week & I'll be going down w/ the g/f for a quick weekend getaway next weekend bfr her school starts back up.

    My Dad has been retired for a couple years now and my Mom is retiring effective Oct. 1 this year and they are going down and stay for a month or so (so they say) and have talked about moving down there.

    Both they & my G-Pa own ajoining units in this place so who knows what they will do.

    I just wish I had more vacation time to spend down there.

    P.S.- Red - let me know if you need any more help w/ the pix.

    I knew it was a pier in NC, you know I was just busting your chops cause you said NC was better. I will honestly say I will take a NC beach over SC anyday but I have not been to Charleston, Pawley's Island or Hilton Head (I think that is in GA). Thanks for the pic it was nice to see. I went to Myrtle Beach State Park. We sat near the pier on the beach. We took a few pics but nothing that has the pier in it, (here I go again thinking nice, I know, I know, it's not the pier people want to see, haha).

    A relative if mine lives in NC, near Atlantic Beach. That's a NICE Beach!

    I miss the Outer Banks. I wish I could visit sooner. Schools starts Aug 8th. then Soccer, Gymnastics and everything else starts to heat up and go into full swing (which I love). The next thing ya know it's Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    I want to visit New York during the Christmas Holiday. A few of us are planning a trip. One of the guys visits a few FDNY's and goes on ride alongs. He is an instructor here.

    My heart is in the South but you can't beat visiting NY. I can't wait.
