This is where we are headed!

Mom and Dad took a little cruise to check out the beach house we rented at North Litchfield Beach. This is the view right in front of the house we rented. This beach is at the south end of the Grand Strand Trail. It is directly connected to Huntington Beach, my personal favorite beach. North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach are lined with sky high condos and tourist attractions.
This is certainly the end of the Grand Strand where you want to be. Matt and I have been researching local fun spots. Located not too far from the "Driftwood" is the "Calypso Beach Bar and Grill." This oceanfront restaurant and open-air bar is the center of activity, serving breakfast & lunch daily and dinner 7 nights per week. Also not too far away is the "Pawleys Island Tavern." Home of shrimp, beer and blues! A locals' favorite! Speaking of locals, Mom and Dad have promised to do some cooking! The beach house comes equipped with a gas grill for our own culinary creations, as well as beach toys. Somebody pinch me!!!

Big doings!

Not only did the first big snow storm of the season hit, but Matt is having a colonoscopy tomorrow. He will love me for announcing it on the world wide web. We didn't get a foot of snow as everyone and their brother anticipated. However, the snow we did receive was mixed with freezing rain and made for a lovely coat of ice on the roads and a rough commute. A fresh coat of snow covers up all the dirty snow, including the dog poop in the yard, and gives you a reason to leave work early. Yippee!!!
Matt is not doing well with a diet of chicken broth, green jello, and herb tea.

Flights are booked!!!

Thanks to Matt and Kim's extensive web searching, we are booked to take the big old air jet liner outta here!!! We leave Bangor at 12:57 on Saturday, April 14th and arrive in Myrtle Beach at 5:17 pm, by way of Philadelphia? We have rented a car at the airport, so they tell me, but I'm sure Mom and Dad will be there to greet us. We booked our flights with travelocity, so everything is subject to change. Dad, I still don't have the address of the "Driftwood" in North Litchfield, but will get it to you soon so you can check it out.

Happy Valentines Day from our house to yours.

We do love a holiday! Annie got a new pink Valentines Day collar and new dog toy today. She loves "new stuff." She is her mothers daughter after all.

I'm sorry I missed Mom's birthday celebration. It looks like a good time to me and it doesn't appear to be 20 below zero.
