This past weekend, we headed down to Myrtle Beach. I'm not fond of larger cities these days, but I have been spending more time at Myrtle, usually at writers retreats, and it's growing tolerable. It is, after all, a beach. But the city itself wasn't our goal. We wanted to explore the state park on our new bikes.
Ironically, it was the start of Bike Week in Myrtle Beach. A time when motorcyclists from across the country converge on the city and cruise up and down Ocean Blvd on Harleys. Our bikes, however, are a little more fuel efficient.

They're also hybrids, so we had a great time exploring the parks and the trails. After locking the bikes on those racks, we strolled down the pier and then enjoyed a cup of Blue Bell Ice Cream at the gift shop. Photos from our trip are below.
The bikes are turning into an adventure. Just last night, a pitbull chased us down and attempted to grab me off mine. That has created quite the conversation. Next time.
