Yet Another Reason I love the Pee Dee

22 Jun

This week one of my friends (Flossip) tweeted that if she wins the lottery, she will be movin to the mountains. I basically answered that, as a hillbilly myself, if I win the lottery (which would be an outright MIRACLE) I will be moving to the BEACH. I love those hills, but they do not compare to the beach!! I guess when you grow up looking at the Blue Ridge Mountains everyday, they just don’t hold the luster of the sand and surf of the Grand Strand. But that is just me …

Yesterday we went to the beach. No evening worship last night at EBC (in honor of Father’s Day) so the Wike clan loaded up and drove to Garden City. Yes, it was hot. But it was worth it!! The beach was packed, and I think a guy that works out at the Y was beside us in the beginning. We spent about 3 hours on the beach and packed up to go to Carrabbas to eat supper.

All in all, it was a great trip!! And that is one of the things I LOVE about living in Florence!! Being close enough to make a day trip like that, and yet far enough away to go on vacation down there and it really feel like a vacation!!!!

And after a brief conversation on Twitter, I am now praying for Flossip to hit the lottery: She promised the Wikes would be some beach time out of the deal if she wins!!!
