North Myrtle Beach, September 1, 2012

The plan for today was either the beach or golf. We all chose the beach. But first we had a little shopping to do at the outlets before they got crowded. Then Don and I had lunch with an OLD friend of his, John, and his girlfriend Dee. John and Don have been friends for 51 years, since they were boys marching in Drum Corps. They took us to the River City Cafe at Barefoot Landing and we had a great time. The food was good and the guys kept us entertained with stories from yesteryear. (I'm talking the 1960's!)
Upon returning we all spent some time at the beach, but today was even hotter than yesterday, so we had to be careful. The ocean water was almost warm due to the hot summer. The beach was very busy today, busier than yesterday probably because it is the weekend now.
I asked Jessie, the bride, to give us a recommendation for dinner and therefore Steve, Donna, Don and I went to Rockefeller's Raw Bar. It is a cute little local place just up the street. Because of its size we had to wait a bit to get in, but the food was great and the atmosphere was fun. The younger of our group went to the Boardwalk area of Myrtle Beach. They had dinner at another local place and did a lot of people watching.
We all headed to the House of Blues next for party time after the rehearsal dinner. The dinner ran a bit longer and it was so humid that none of us stayed too long. It felt really good to get back to our condo's air conditioning!
The high today was at least 92° with so much humidity we felt as if we could wring ourselves out . Mostly sunny during the day with some clouds arriving in the evening. No rain.
