Porch sitting and a break in Myrtle Beach

Sunrise over the Atlantic from the porch of the condo
The first week of November was one of our weeks at the condo in Myrtle Beach, but we knew we wouldn't go down for the whole week, so after seeing that Kristy's tests had come back OK, and that she would have an aide or sitter 24/7, we decided to come down for the weekend. KK and Karisa have kept us up to date on how Kristy is doing. KK said today that she looked better and was more responsive, so this is all good.
The weather here has been just wonderful; sunny with a bright blue sky and in the upper seventies each day. My oh my, I do love warm weather!! We have walked on the beach a lot and collected shells to take back for the kids. Seafood is one of our very favorite things and it is great here...lots of fresh shrimp, flounder, grouper and great oysters.....especially in November! So there's been some great meals at Bimini's and Nance's in Murrell's Inlet (favorite seafood joints) and a little relaxing near the pool. And lots of just plain ol' "porch sitting"....looking out over the sea oats and dunes to the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves. It is a peaceful place. It would be great to bring Kristy here when she gets better. It's a therapeutic place!!

This is truly one of our favorite places to be, so it is good to enjoy a couple of days here. We'll head back to Richmond early Sunday morning and I'll be heading back to MCV each day to see if I can be of any help to Kristy. Hopefully, she'll be improving every day!! Hugs to everyone!!

Hi Bob and Molly,

Glad you're getting to relax a little. I love the sound of the sound of the waves hitting the beach and the smell of "salt air". I'm an old Florida beach girl at heart.

Glad to hear Kristy is improving. We are checking her blog everyday and I know she has been really sick. Please let us know if we can help in any way.

Hugs to both of you.....Pat and Mike

Great post!!! That looks like a neat place, I hope you can bring Kristy there when she gets better. It would be enjoyable for her. She needs some FUN time after what she has been through.

We are so glad se is doing better. I check her blog every day and get quite worried when we don't hear something....

Keep us posted and we continue our prayers for her. Its a tough haul!!!
