A Day At The Beach


Well, we’re back from our boomerang trip across to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The traveling was easy and uneventful and on-time and while we were there we enjoyed an excellent unconventional “southern boil” feast for Thanksgiving with Susan’s folks who are within a stonecrab’s throw of a magnificent stretch of white sand and surf that’s loaded with all sorts of shells, seabirds and stuff. Susan and I took two good walks on it, one to the north on Thursday and then another south this morning.

We got home to find my mom’s nerves a little frazzled from having to care for our zoo, but she managed, and all our four-legged fiends were none the worse for wear.

I’m hoping the next time we’re down Myrtle Beach way we can stay an extra day and go explore Charleston which is only about an hour’s drive.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
