Day 3 - Myrtle Beach

Today was a beautiful day in Myrtle Beach. Weather was perfect, the ocean was warm, and the atmosphere was one of normalization: people being people again, most respecting other peoples' spaces. Spent the day with long-time friends, Jim and Maureen Purcell. Jim was my Sergeant and then Lieutenant at the Attleboro Police Department, some 40 years ago. We reminisced about "the old days" way back, when things were so different, especially in light of recent policing news. It's great to catch up with people we were so close with, a tight-knit group of some mostly really great, caring officers. Jim is now a TSA training officer and Maureen works at "The Alabama Theater", the greatest live variety show in Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach is a great vacation resort on the Atlantic Ocean in South Carolina and is the hub of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of beaches. Along it's beachfront boardwalk are restaurants, arcades, souvenir stands amd the great SkyWheel, one to the tallest Ferris wheels in the country. Mist interesting to me is the Bungee Machine that I watch just outside my window. I have sky-dived but I do not have any desire to get on this contraption. Scares the daylights out of me!

Of course you did.
You won’t go on the bungee drop? I have a hard time climbing up a “small” step ladder, much less willfully jumping into space with a rubber band holding me up. But you have dived out of a perfectly good plane. You never cease to amaze me.

It's called a Sling Shot
Hi Mike, They shoot you like a Sling Shot from the ground up into the air, there is no jumping on this one - lol.
