Today was Lon's actual birthday! We wanted to do something fun, something we had not done before. We thought that going to lunch in Myrtle Beach would be fun! So that is what we did.
A question arose on why it was called Myrtle Beach. The answer is a nice lady came up with the name for a contest. She called it Myrtle Beach because of the wax myrtle trees growing wild along the shore.
Not as far away as it seemed on the map
We drove by 12 different mini golf courses. We decided when we come back we will go to the Montezuma mini golf
Lon had been looking forward to it!
Jr. Cheeseburger in Paradise. Lon really did like it. He ate it all with a big dill pickle!
We ordered special drinks that were supposed to come in souvenir cups, but when they were served, they were in plain cups. I asked and she said they were out. But she mentioned it to us when we were ordering! I was a bit annoyed.
The desserts were chocolate bread pudding, key lime pie and a HUGE thing called a chocolate hurricane. That looked good, but it was way too big, and it was 17 dollars. We passed.
I was hoping they would do something for his birthday, but they did not. Even though I said something to the wait staff four different times!
The food was good, but the service was odd
Good news was there was a Cold Stone Creamery next door!!
Lon with his ice cream and sprinkles!
When we got home, Lon wanted pizza and ice cream cake for dinner. We took a little trip to Harris Teeter, and got a pizza there. The ice cream cake was fun.
It was a really fun birthday day!
