Soaking in the Sun

It has been a long, cold, snowy winter in the Northeast.  We have been missing our friend, Mr. Sun, so we went in search of him.

On Spring Break we headed south.  South to where the temperatures are about 15 degrees warmer, and even if it rains, it feels warm.  South to where the beach is beckoning in early April.

Myrtle Beach, SC was our destination.  We left on a Friday, and stayed overnight in Staunton, VA.  It was beautiful - just to the west of the Shenandoah National Park.   If the beach wasn't calling my name, I probably would have been perfectly content to stay there and enjoy God's beauty.

The next day, we headed out on the road again.  The kids loved traveling in Romeo (our camper) vs. the truck.  They especially liked that they can "eat on the road".

We enjoyed a great week at PirateLand in Myrtle Beach, and God gave us a such a blessing with perfect weather!

This way to the beach!!

Even Bandit loved the beach!

Easter Sunrise Service on the beach.  He is Risen!!

Our spirits were lifted by our trip, and can't wait to start planning our spring break trip for next year!
