Friends, Womens, Country Fans, lend me your ears! (I’m 98% positive that’s a real saying) I will be departing tomorrow for Spring Break 2012 ROUND TWO! However, this time I will be headed south, way south. In fact, I will be going all the way from North Carolina (SB #1) to SOUTH Carolina; I’ve heard it’s quite a hike.

Anyways, I’m going to the infamous Myrtle Beach with my family minus my mother (I’ll miss you, mom!). I’ll be gone for about 6 days, from this Wednesday (4/4) to next Tuesday (4/not 4). We will be there with most of my dad’s side of the family, so it should be a good time!


Now if you guys aren’t familiar with Myrtle Beach, let me familiarize you. Let’s look at some facts:

  • Myrtle Beach is in north(ern) South Carolina, so essentially you get all the Carolina’s have to offer.
  • It’s the oldest vacation spot around. I mean, I’ve been going there since I was THREE. I know, crazy.
  • It has more miniature golf and putt putt courses than the moon.
  • Dr. Suess’ Yertle the Turtle was based off Myrtle Beach. They couldn’t use “Myrtle” because it was copyrighted by The Beach.
  • Both Moaning Myrtle (Harry Potter series) and Myrtle Wilson (The Great Gatsby) were born in AND named after Myrtle Beach.
  • Myrtle Beach is often abbreviated BAMF. This, obviously, stands for Best American Myrtle Foundation.
Those are the most commonly known facts about Myrtle Beach, and now that you’re caught up, I shall continue. . .

That said, I’m done.

In summary, I’m going on a family vacation to Myrtle Beach for about 6 days. It should be fun. I’ve been going there for awhile, so I know what to expect! I will post pictures from my trip, as I did after my famed return from Spring Break 2012 round one — North Carolina.

Finally, let me leave you with some pictures of BAMF.
