Vacation Day Five: Photographing Strangers

Mom and I spent our last day of vacation in Myrtle Beach.
We had amazing crab salads at the pier.


I wrote a bunch of postcards (and then actually sent them which is sort of a vacation miracle for me).


We rode the Sky Wheel. Apparently, its very fancy name constitutes a very fancy ticket price but I’m a sucker for a ferris wheel. 



I was walking down to Ripley’s Believe It or Not and these guys offered to pose for a picture. This is the kind of thing that makes me want to be a photo journalist who can walk up to strangers and ask to take their picture all the time.


The Gay Dolphin is supposedly the largest gift shop on the East Coast and it’s been a landmark spot on Ocean Boulevard since 1946. It was seriously enormous and had absolutely everything you could possibly imagine buying in Myrtle Beach.


Mom indulged my curiosity about the other big draw in Myrtle Beach, the never-ending seafood buffets. This place, The Original Benjamin’s Kalabash Seafood, had 170 buffet items. 170. I can’t even think of that many different kinds of dishes. We both tried to be adventurous and I can now tell you that Oysters Rockefeller is as awesome as its name. Really awesome.


Also, I had fresh crab legs for the first time. I love crab but I’ve never been brave enough to order it in the shell. It’s a lot of work to eat but it makes an excellent moustache.

Thanks for letting me share all these pictures with you. And now back to regularly scheduled programming…

love, elizabeth
