I'm not happy about it one bit.
The clouds we woke up to this morning certainly did not brighten my mood, but we still had a really fun day...especially once the sun came out.
Since it wasn't prime beach weather (it was a tad on the chilly side), we decided to visit the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. There are some fighter jets on display there.
We also did a little shopping.
Once the sun came out, we left the mall & headed to the beach for about 4 hours. Then, it was time for dinner with Kim & Andy. After dinner, we headed back to our hotel to pack.

Me in front of the fighter jet.
Our rental car...yep, the one I couldn't see over the dash.
This private jet kept circling "hotel row" waiting to land at the airport. It was flying pretty low & I actually got a little nervous when I saw circle for the 4th time. After that, though, it landed.
Me watching the water. How do you like that piece of neck fat between my hair & where my bathing suit ties? Lovely.
I know, I know...you're probably sick of me blogging about this stupid lemonade cart, but I had to post this picture. The girl that was pushing it, just all of a sudden took out her backpack & left. Yes, just up & left the cart in the middle of the beach. She came back about 30 minutes later, so I guess she was taking her break.
Ahhhhhh, the ocean.

Kim & me outside the restaurant where we ate dinner.
My dessert. Look how pretty that is? I hated to eat it & mess it all up, but I did! It was worth it...so good.
Matt's key lime pie. And, yes, the flower was edible.
Another picture of Kim & me after dinner.
I knew that when Kim & I started this, the day would come when we would have to tell each other "bye" & "see you soon" & I really thought I'd prepared myself for it.
I think we hugged 3 or 4 times & that last time, I fought so hard not to cry. And, I did really well until I got in the car to go back to the hotel.
Cue the tears.
Meeting Kim went better than I could have ever expected. And, I promise to write more about that in the next few days!
Kim, I love you & I know without a doubt that our friendship is going to last a lifetime!
