An Off-Season Day in Myrtle Beach

Friday, November 9, 2018


6:00 a.m.

Oh the joys of traveling with dogs!  We woke up to Charlie wanting to go outside really bad - but I didn't get up in time - he ended up peeing on the floor in the kitchen.  Thankfully it is linoleum and cleaned up easily.  The sun was just starting to come up and Charlie and I took a relaxing walk on the beach.  It felt great outside - upper 50's.

11:00 a.m.

We were lazy this morning and took our time getting around.  After breakfast we headed out to explore Myrtle Beach.

I'm sure during the summer months, it would take quite a while to drive up and down Ocean Boulevard but for us, it didn't take long at all.  Looking at all the high rise hotels was OK but we really enjoyed the luxury homes that lined the streets.




12:30 p.m.

We really didn't see anything we wanted to do on Ocean Boulevard so we drove to Market Common.  Market Common is a beautiful town by itself!  It has beautiful, new townhouse homes, quaint streets with sidewalks and bike paths, and awesome stores and restaurants.



Tupelo Honey was the #1 restaurant for this area so we decided to give it a try for lunch.  We were so glad we did!  It was so good! They bring out these delicious fresh made biscuits with jam and honey before your meal - yum!

Clinton got the Mountain Harvest Bowl which had roasted sweet potatoes, sauteed kale, grilled chicken, goat cheese, Granny Smith apples, toasted almonds, wild rice blend, and a white balsamic dressing:



I got their lunch special - pick 3 - I picked the spicy avocado & egg sandwich, creamy tomato soup with pumpernickel croutons and the kale salad with rainbow beets, watermelon radish and butternut squash.  The salad was amazing!



It was such a healthy lunch!  We really loved Tupelo Honey!

After lunch we walked around the shops.  I enjoyed a cute shop called Southern Living Store.  They had the cutest things in there!  When you're living in an RV, you're not tempted to buy stuff.  But it was nice just to look!




We also stopped at a yoga place, Yoga in Common, where you can take classes and also buy items.  On my morning walk with Charlie I saw a flyer of a free yoga class on the beach at night with glow sticks!  I have always wanted to take up yoga so I thought now was the time.  We were helped by very nice ladies inside the shop who helped me pick out my first yoga mat!  

I got a Hugger Mugger mat.  I tagged them in a post on Instagram and they immediately reached out to me and gave me recommendations.  What an awesome company!  I highly them if you need any yoga supplies. 



6:30 p.m.

After we returned to the campground, I attended my first yoga class.  I had to drive there since it was a ways down the beach (still in the state park).  It started at 5:30, just as the sun was going down.  You were supposed to wear glow sticks.  I picked some up at the Dollar Tree.  There were seven of us all together.  It was an awesome experience - doing a relaxing workout on the beach, in the dark, with the sound of the waves and the light from our glow sticks!  I felt so good afterward.  

Clinton fixed dinner while I was working out.  He grilled pork chops and baked sweet potatoes on our wood pellet grill.  

Instead of working on the blog, we watched the new Ghostbusters movie instead since we have satellite here.  It was really funny.  

Here's a breakdown of the costs for our day:


This journey is so interesting!  It's not perfect and it's not always what you expect but if you stay open to new possibilities, it will lead you down roads you never expected.

Stay happy Campers!

Michele and Clinton
