That's Usually Not There

Monday, April 21, 2014

This past weekend at the beach has been very interesting. It's been cold, slightly raining and full of interesting detours. Who knew coming in the off season could be so different.

Okay so I expected the cold and raining but what I wasn't expecting was so much construction. We've been down in the off season plenty of times but there has never been so much roadwork.

My families condo is in North Myrtle Beach for those of y'all who are familiar with the area. Well for those of you who don't know, NMB has a problem with roads flooding when it rains a little too much. So apparently the city decided to start working on it currently. They are installing newer bigger drainage pipes under many of the roads near our condo.

I usually run along a road a block back from Ocean Boulevard because there are nice sidewalks and much less traffic, but this time I was sorely disappointed with my running trail.

That small body of water there... yeah, that's usually not there. That used to be compete woods. But not anymore. I guess when I come back in the summer we will see how my running trail looks. Maybe eventually it will get back to normal.

By the way this is what normal used to look like. Thanks Google Maps because I never knew I needed a picture of this area before!

Oh well, hopefully the drainage system will work now.

PS besides cold weather, the beach wasn't that bad. I did wiggle my toes in the sand, but no miniature golf this time. It's a tradition to play with John and I didn't want to break that tradition.

  1. It is so cool that your family has a condo there. I'm not really an ocean person... but my parents have a lake house and I'm the biggest fan of it!

  2. I love NMB!! It is such a beautiful place.

  3. WOW! That's a whole lot of water there lol it looks like an actual lake!

  4. I wish we had a condo there! And I cant believe that looks like that! I hope it clears up!!!

    Love Always,
