To Myrtle Beach and Back

October 5, 2009 at 2:48 pm (broadband, Dial up, Internet surfing) (, , )

I’m back from vacation! *sigh* It’s ok–I wouldn’t want to be on vacation forever, and it’s nice to sleep in my own bed, but Ohio in October is shockingly cold after a week at Myrtle Beach!

Last week I attended a small wedding with the setting sun lighting the couple’s excited faces and the waves washing over their feet. It was beautiful! Here’s a few fun facts if you are considering having a beach wedding:

Pros:

  • Gorgeous free scenery
  • No flowers, music, decorations and big, long, poofy dress to pay for (at least, I wouldn’t recommend a such a dress)
  • Friends and family who can afford to come love it!
  • Honeymoon is within walking distance! Woot! 😀

Cons

  • Friends and family may not come because of expenses or schedules.
  • Said persons will probably complain, whine, grumble, and fume both behind you back and to your face that they couldn’t see you get married.
  • You either don’t get to wear that big poofy dress, or you’ll get it very wet and/or dirty.

Hmm.. I think that’s it. In other thoughts, Aunt Jemima and Mrs. Butterworth must make a killing in Myrtle Beach, because there is a pancake house on every block down there! And don’t get me started on the Bargain Beachwear stores. Large illuminated pastel buildings screaming deals exactly the same as the 20 other stores within 5 miles quickly lose their validity. The beach was nice, but I’m probably not going back any time soon.

Our hotel was decent and not too expensive, so that was a relief. We had a nice veiw of the ocean! I have never seen the ocean at night, and let me tell you, that is spectacular! Like most hotels these days, we had free wireless Internet services. I took my laptop, but I barely used it. Ever feel that itch in your fingers when you finally have broadband access right there but you can’t think of a website you wanna go to? I definitely felt that. It’s a dial-up thing, so some of you might not understand. Hehe!

Well, I’ll be catching up on news and info soon and keeping you informed on all things dialup and Internet–or at least my opinion. 😉 Have a great day!
