1: Myrtle Beach May 14-22, 2011 Every year around our anniversary, we like to go on vacation. We try to go to a new place each time. After throwing out ideas and going back and forth, this year we decided on Myrtle Beach, SC. On Saturday May 14, 2011 we left our home in Van Wert, OH to spend a relaxing week in Myrtle Beach. We left later than we originally planned, but we accomplished everything that we needed to so that we could leave work behind and have a great time. We stopped in Lexington, KY to eat supper at Chipotle and look at the map so we could figure out where to spend the night. We decided that we could make it to the Asheville, NC area near the Biltmore Estate. The hotel rooms were full there, so we drove a little further and stayed at a nice Hampton Inn in Hendersonville, NC. After a great night's rest, we had breakfast and made our way to Myrtle Beach. It was a week of relaxing, reconnecting and having fun. Come along with us as we report our stay at the Island Vista Resort...
