If you are ever in the Myrtle Beach, SC area, you should make it a point to spend a day at Brookgreen Gardens. Brookgreen Gardens is approximately 18 miles outside of Mytle Beach as you head towards Charleston on Highway 17S. Brookgreen Gardens is a sprawling outdoor museum that cover many acres and is chock full of sculptures, gardens, walkways, fountains and ponds/pools. Make sure that you give yourself most of the day to casually stroll, view and photograph all of the works of art that are available here. It really is quite impressive. Above are some photos that I took several years ago. I apologize for the quality of the photos. At that time, I was using an inferior quality camera. I hope that you enjoy these photos.

Back in the 80s, I went to visit my folks in Fairfax, VA. I believe it was around the 4th of July. They had a parade and fireworks. They also had a carnival going on. While at the carnival, I ran into the Washington Redskins cheerleaders and of course I had to get my picture taken with them.....who wouldn't????
I have taken numerous beach sunrise/sunset photos. I will add more in the future. I love the colors and reflections off of the water. These were taken at Myrtle Beach, SC. I apologize for the inferior quality of these pictures. They were taken quite some time ago using a lower quality camera.
In 1973-1974, I got my very first new car. It was a Toyota Celica ST with a Landau roof. If I remember correctly, I paid about $3500 for the car....fully loaded with all of the extras After a number of years and after I paid off the car loan, I decided to fix the car up a bit. I put on duel exhausts rather than the single one, air shocks in the back and wider tires on brushed chrome wheels. I also had a Thrush muffler on it. Boy did this baby sound nice and look sharp too!!! It was my pride and joy. It was a sad day when I ended up having to get rid of it.
