Outdoor Wednesday - Myrtle Beach, SC

These are some pictures from Myrtle Beach, SC. We've been going there every year since I've been born. We're leaving in a couple of days so I was just looking at some pictures from several years ago. Look at the service that you now get on the beach....anything from drinks to suntan lotion. You never have to leave your seat. How convenient!!! Also, Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune was staying at the same place we were. Travis just had to get his picture made with her. She is from Myrtle Beach and was there with some friends. For more outdoor pics, please visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.


  1. What a wonderful tradition. Have a great time resting but don't forget the sunscreen.
    That Vanna, seems like a real jewel. MIL and I were just talking yesterday after watching the WHEEL. That show has never had bad press (that we could think of).
    Anyway back to the beach...looking forward to pics from this year.

  2. Love the photos, how lucky to be to be there while Vanna was. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Wow. I can't wrap my head around seeing vehicles on the beach. They would never allow that here for any reason other then an emergency.
    Come to think of it a margarita is an emergency in my book.

  4. Very nice pics! It's great you continue to carry on this tradition.


  5. Gina, you are not going to believe this, but Vanna White dated (for a short while) my husband's college roommate after he graduated and moved to California. He brought her to a reception for us (we had married away and went home to have a party after Christmas) years ago! I had no idea she was from Myrtle Beach. If I had had my wits about me that night (of course this was in the days before she was truly as famous as she is now), then I would have had a picture made with her. As it was, I never got out of the receiving line. It went on through the entire party!!! I got the last glass of champagne punch. LOL!

    Loved seeing this, and she is still GORGEOUS. Amazing.

    Happy OW...

  6. Oh Gina! I was born in Charelston S.C. and my folks used to take me to Myrtle Beach as a baby in my play pen. One day I will post pics. You would not believe it is the same place. I was born in 1957, so it definitely has changed quite a bit. I love the south tho, and ended up married and in the desert in Phoenix. I loved your post. It's a good thing you got that pic with Vannah, because nobody would have believed Travis, they would have thought for sure he was yanking their chain. Great post. I have signed up to follow your BLOG. It looks so interesting. Please pop over and say Hi. I would love to have you sign up to follow mine as well. Country Hugs, Sherry

  9. Gina,

    I thought this was a picture of YOU with Travis until I read on!! Vanna sure is gorgeous, she never changes! Travis isn't bad either!!

    I was in Myrtle Beach for the 1st time in April. We stayed at the Hilton. I just loved it!! I'm a little green with envy that you are going, but have a wonderful trip!!


  10. Wow, it's gorgeous at that beach!

  11. Hey Gina,
    wishing I was at the beach right now....I live in Eastern NC !

  12. It is wonderful that you are able to continue your holiday tradition. That is one fantastic photo of your husband and Vanna :-) Enjoy yourselves this year.
