I love the sounds of the surf, the ocean waves lapping on the shore.
Growing up in New Bedford, Massachusetts, right on the coast, I spent lots of time at the beach. Lou grew up going to Miami Beach!
We figure we can get at least one beach trip in during hospice.
We sure have nice beaches here in North Carolina! But I wanted to go somewhere new.
That's why I kept thinking about Bermuda's pink beaches. But realistically the flights would be too hard on me.
Lou figured out a way to get me to Myrtle Beach in a white limo!!! I can stretch out on the back seat, totally comfy, for the 4 hour drive.
Next we had to find a nice resort where I can plunk down in a lounge chair in some shade and not move for hours, if need be.
Our friends Gail and Mo suggested that we look at Kingston Plantation Resort in north Myrtle Beach, and it looks perfect.
So that's where we are headed.
I will be able to walk as little or as much as I want.
Worst case scenario, if I never make it out of the hotel room, I can watch the Atlantic Ocean from the balcony.
Picture me on the balcony, looking down at a tiki bar, trying to figure out which little person down there is Lou. He's the guy drinking margaritas and beating me at Words With Friends. (As if he would leave me alone for in a minute!)
