Today was a great day here in Myrtle Beach-the day started off bright sunny and hot. We took the fur kids for a big walk on the beach-and they dipped their paws in the ocean.
Upon our return, they rested in the air conditioning in the motorhome and we donned our beach apparel, hopped in the golf cart and spent a few hours at the beach just relaxing.
Later in the day storm clouds started to roll in, the wind seemed to pick up instantly, and there were beach umbrellas flying everywhere.
Talk about a gaggle of folks packing up fast and taking off. We came back, battened down the hatches, pulled in all the awnings and just sat back to watch it roar. We got some thunder and lightening and lots of rain. I feel bad for all the folks pulling in and trying to set up their rigs in the rain. The park is suppose to be filled to capacity this long easter weekend.
We have a family of ducks here which incidentally are driving Tucker crazy..he is so focused on watching them out the window even a treat won't bring him off the sofa.
After a rest from the hard job of beaching it-we decided it was time to tackle the sandy dogs. We have been picking sand burrs from their coats all day every day. Seems like its been a gazillion trillion at a time. I decided Miss Lilly had just too much coat on her so we got out the clippers and did a job on her then I showered her. As for Mr. Tucker? After the 3 hrs it took to do her I think I'll just take him to petsmart or another groomer on Saturday. I'm tuckered out!
This park has a lovely Easter display-the 40 days of Easter and the life of Christ set up in the lake. The pictures just do not do it justice and I will get some more in the day light. Each evening there is a narrated Easter story which is told through narration, lights, and music daily at 8pm lasting 35 minutes. We attended from the comfort of our golf cart last evening. It was a very nice production.

I'm looking forward to attending the Easter services on Sunday. On Saturday there is a car show here on the resort at the conference center so we will attend that also.
Tonight for supper we whipped up a shepherds pie. It was very tasty. We had planned on grilling but the rain put a quick damper on that. At times it is raining quite heavily. I feel bad for the folks that are here just for the Easter weekend. I sure hope the weather clears up for them.
Take care all, be safe out there and have a wonderful long weekend! And remember..
