This was a great beach just south of Myrtle Beach. I had never been to Myrtle, but after driving through, I could see all the commercialism, and was not very impressed. Luckily, we had a great deal from TravelZoo, and came down the coast a few miles to find a much more residential beach. The Holiday Inn at Surfside beach was great, and it was also great to not be sleeping outside on a HOT August night :-p.
I’ve been feeling really constrained since being home (the past like 36 hours, haha). Think it’s a combination of needing to do stuff for work, not being organized to the slightest (car not even unpacked) and I nothing is “normal” as far as work goes and schedule of events. Basically everything is new, and it’s kinda confusing. Today I tried to cure that by getting some exercise and I think that, plus a good nights sleep tonight will be the cure.

Last night I was able to barge in on “deadliest catch night” over at Mary Claire’s and got to see Richard as well. It was good to see old friends, and catch up. Richard and I had a conversation about Ayn Rand, well… mostly him, but I chimed in with what I know. Basically Ayn Rand’s Objectivism is really “Subjectivism” and something about Truism. My goal is to finish Atlas Shrugged which I started reading two years ago during my trip, so that when I get back, I can have a real conversation about this, haha.
UPDATE: Forgot to mention… I BIKED the ‘Loop’ haha, in like ~90 minutes or so.
