Murrells Inlet 2015

This year, Cousin Bill had invited us down to Murrells Inlet, just south of Myrtle Beach, to stay at his "Flip Flop Inn".  Of course, we said yes.

So, we set out for the airport one Friday morning, to catch the short flight down there.  4 hours of delay and next to no updates, the airline canceled the flight due to technical issues with the plane and told us to come back for an 8am flight the next morning.  How frustrating!!!!

Luckily, they did fix the plane, and shortly before lunch the next day, we were settled into the Flip Flop Inn.  Bill and Whitney had converted a two-car garage into the perfect little apartment.  We loved it.

We spent an absolutely lovely week.  We enjoyed the beach at Huntington Beach State Park (even in the pouring rain one time), visited Brookgreen Gardens, and spent some time on the Boardwalk in Myrtle Beach.

One of the highlights was Cousin Bill taking us out on his boat on a ride through the Saltmarsh and some time on a deserted beach.

We also met Will's half-brother Rick, had delicious food at various restaurants and spent many a lovely evening with Bill and Whitney, sitting outside chatting and having a drink.

We most definitely plan on taking Bill and Whitney up on their kind invitation to go back.

I did bring my camera, but didn't use it once.  Instead, I took a bunch of pictures with my phone.  So, if the quality of pictures isn't the best, that would be the reason why.

I'll try and get more photos up in the next couple of days.  In the meantime, here are some from the Marshwalk in Murrells Inlet one evening.
