Road Trip to Myrtle Beach





We love going to Myrtle Beach, SC in late October and early November. The water is still warm and there are almost no crowds. The reason we go is for the PEZ in the Sun PEZ gathering but that’s really just an excuse. This year we tried to find a few new things to do as well as our old favorites. Eating is one of the highlights of Myrtle Beach area. Of course, I have to make a trip to Bubba’s Fish Shack in Surfside Beach for a serving of Pickle Nickels. The other two awesome places we ate during this trip were Amici’s Italian Bistro and the fabulous Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse. You can’t go wrong by eating at any of those spots.

Peg and I are big car freaks so we thought we would checkout the new Wheels of Yesteryear Museum. There was I nice collection of cars but I wish the displays weren’t so squished together. Lots of Mopars. Peg was happy that they had her new favorite car which is a Nash Metropolitan.

We took in a show once again and this years choice was The Magical Spirit of Ireland at the Palace Theatre. Peg liked it but I thought it was just okay. When they say intimate setting they really mean SMALL. We sat in the front row and I wished we were back a few rows for this venue.

When at the beach you have to play Putt-Putt. This year we played both courses at Captain Hooks. This has to be one of the best themed courses in Myrtle. There were all sorts of extra details based on the story of Peter Pan. I highly recommend playing a round or two. 

We stayed once again at the Springmaid Beach Resort since this is where the PEZ event is held. It is at the southern most side of Myrtle and very quiet. A plus is that they have a nice pier that is free with your room. Not the best resort on the beach but it is pretty clean and best of all it is cheap.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
