It was absolutely a gorgeous day on the beach, today. There were only a few small puffy clouds overhead and there was a wonderful breeze blowing in off the ocean. The summer crowd is starting to roll in. Lakewood is not full yet, but as more and more schools are starting summer break, it won't take long. Normally, I wait until late afternoon to go out on the beach...mostly because of the heat and during the peak summer months you will be hard pressed to find a spot on the beach to call our own. And then if it's high tide, you might as well lay out in the sand dunes. Although, I wouldn't recommend that. You might find yourself spending a little time in the pokie. Anyway, since it was so nice and I've been craving some beach time, I took my chances. Well, it was high tide, but the crowd is not here yet so I found a little spot in the sand and it was awesome. Here are some photos I took with my phone. Thought you might like to see a little Seaside this Sunday.....
I parked my chair by these Lakewood rentals.
Some good shade there, if you need it.
South facing view.
As you can see, there are still bare spots in the sand.
I predict in another couple of weeks, there will be wall to wall chairs and umbrellas.
The tide was high midday. It always pushes the crowd back near the sand dunes.
The water is still a little too cool to go swimming, at least for me.
But there are a few brave souls out there.

Myrtle Beach is just beyond those umbrellas and chairs.
Wish you were here!
