How was your spring break? Did you go anywhere interesting? What were the highlights?

N. Myrtle Beach was my spring break destination for the first time since high school and college. It’s not my usual type of getaway, but some friends offered their condo and the Scotsman inside me could not refuse. We really did have a grand time along the strand. We stayed at Crescent Shores in a 17th floor two bedroom unit. The wide angle view was stunning, especially early in the morning. I took a lot of pictures and I am including them with the blog. Let me know what you think.

I enjoyed the massive expanse of ocean in front of me with very few ships in the distance. Oddly, the view reminded me of our place in the mountains where it seems we can see forever on a clear day. My greatest accomplishment of the week was taking a CD course on basic meditation and reading a 600-page book on Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I also did some important spade work on a new music CD with a Scottish theme. I still love to walk and run on the beach. Even in my shorts with baseball cap and sunglasses people still recognized me and greeted me kindly.

The only downside was the occasional scream of youthful exuberance in the middle of the night from some of our neighbors. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation that I will savor for a long time. It’s good to know I’m not too old for Myrtle Beach. At the northside!

How about your spring break?
