View from my room in Myrtle Beach last month.

  Stayed at the Jamaican, a part of the Caribbean Resorts property. Great view and newly remodeled rooms.  Very inexpensive,at only $78/night.  Good food right next door at the Sea Captain’s House where I hit the breakfast buffet several days.

The bridge at Confluence Park
