Myrtle Beach Dance Competition

Egee had her second dance competition of the year.  So, off we traveled to Myrtle Beach for the Platinum Dance Competition. 

Our trip started out well.  We made good time on the road and decided to swing by Schuler's BBQ.  We love watching The Profit and had seen the episode with Schuler's BBQ.  It wasn't really out of our way and we are glad we stopped.  Their food is great and reasonable. 

After eating, we headed on into Myrtle Beach.  I had made reservations by phone a month previous at The Mermaid Inn.  We were excited to be oceanfront and have two rooms.  That quickly changed when we arrived and were told they had no record of our reservation.  I had a confirmation number and they told me it would do no good.  Needless to say, I was not happy.  There was a car show, dance competition and something else going on that weekend.  Hotels were packed and no vacancy signs were rampant.  Luckily, we were able to get a room at the Marriot Courtyard and make the best of it.  Not ocean front, not two rooms, but it was a decent place to sleep.

The weather had been wonderful all week and of course when we were to be at the beach, a cold front decided to blow in!   We did make our way to the beach at Cherry Grove and walk around before the dance competition.  We were still making lemonade from lemons. 

Egee's dance team did wonderful and scored Platinum.  Of course, this is all that mattered!  Their hard work paid off. 

Until next year, good bye Myrtle Beach!
