myrtle beach: day 1

why is julia blogging so much? because i don't have any homework (that matters, anyway) and i never had the chance to post my photos from this summer. i'm typing from memory, so i hope i didn't forget anything!

now looking back on these photos....the photos are so sharp. T^T before my camera died.

day 1 {july 2, 2011}: departure & walmart adventures

in the beginning of july, i spent a week down at myrtle beach with claudia and her family. i was suprised when my mom said yes, seeing that she's quite...overbearing at times. it was a fun/relaxing/awesome vacation, thank you so much to the moreira family for having me! :D

day one consisted of a long 12 hour drive down to south carolina and settling in. the night before, my mom dropped me off at claudia's and we spent the entire night looking at autocorrect fails and playing words for friend. so by the time we had to depart we'd be tired enough to sleep. her dad likes to open the window during road trips, something i'm not accustomed to at all. (my mom hates the sound of an open window) so we napped in bundles of blankets and the smell of warm sunlight and wind.

claudia said they usually rented an apartment right on the beach, but this year a mishap happened - so the house was ~8 minute drive from the beach. i would have loved to wake up and just walk on the beach, but it doesn't matter!

then, we went to walmart to stock up on stuff/food for the week. i had to shorten down the bajillion photos we took to a few. XD basically us running around looking like tools. i love walmart.
