Last week, a friend and I ventured to Myrtle Beach despite an impending hurricane offshore. It it ended up not being any problems for us. Thursday and Friday there was on and off rain and Saturday was sunny so we actually got out on the beach!!
Thursday we spent some time shopping at the outlets then went to a paint night at Paint and Unwined. The class had several 'regulars', that were super nice and welcoming. I definitely recommend this place if you are in the area! After we painted, we had dinner and saw a band.
Friday, it was on and off rain, so after lunch we tried out a local winery. While neither my friend or I are big wine drinkers, this turned out to be one of the best things we did! I mean we got to sample 15 wines, have our own free cheese/crackers and a glass of wine all for only $10! Plus we got to keep the sampling glass. The people at Duplin winery were super nice and very knowledgeable about their wines.
After spending a majority of the afternoon hanging out at the winery, we went to check out a local brewery. The outside did not seem very inviting, but once we got inside, it turned out to be a cool place. The beer wasn't bad either! We both sampled a light beer at New South Brewery. After dinner, we headed back to the condo to watch a movie.
Saturday the sun came out and after lunch we sat on the beach to enjoy the weather and some people watching!
