Roadtrek Roadtrip, Part 3: Conway and Myrtle Beach, S.C.

This small neighborhood Decorates for Halloween. Two of the houses put an amazing amount of effort into it. If you can, zoom in on the porch shown in the daylight; there are things I didn’t see until I did that!

Today was a beautiful day, with comfortable temperatures; we spent a lot of time on the back deck, knitting, reading, throwing balls for Amber. When her humans went in, she lined them all up –

For dinner, we went to The Captain’s House in Myrtle Beach. We were met by a wooden Captain at the door. The food was excellent, as was the view:

Roadtrek Roadtrip, Part 2: Conway, South Carolina

Spending several days with cousins in Conway, we’ve spent some time exploring downtown. This is a bustling place, just inland from Myrtle Beach and its touristing economy. The town has clearly put some effort into encouraging the arts – there are murals scattered around town, of which the following are a representative sample. The very helpful people at the tourist info center downtown were happy to talk history, and share maps of the murals and the Conway Critters.

Conway Critters are scattered through the downtown, with a few along the River Walk.

Apparently last year the town workers wanted to do something for the youth who were struggling with pandemic lockdowns. They decorated for Halloween, and continued the tradition this year. No, those are not orange trees with oranges – they are pumpkin trees, with pumpkins. Plastic, though –

This was next to and around City Hall, with hats and “cobwebs” blowing in a stiff breeze.

Amber came along for the ride, and a walk by the river. Between activities, she gathered her strength!
