Can I tell you about our day?
Sure, I could show you pictures of us walking on the beach and will do that before the end of the post. But, first, here is something we found far more interesting.

We were up in North Myrtle Beach for some shopping, but drove back through some of the affected area. The pictures speak for themselves:
