This March Break I wasn't planning on doing anything but homework (and I still have a whole boatload left to finish before class on Tuesday!!!), but a friend invited me to go to Myrtle Beach with her and another friend, so off to the south I went.Our first few days were cloudy and rainy, but it was still warmer than at home. We drove straight through the night and arrived in the mid-afternoon. The ocean's nice even when it's cloudy.
This was the sunrise on our last day. Thankfully things had cleared up and gotten sunnier towards the end of the week.
Our second last night we went to Original Benjamin's Calabash Seafood, which was an all-you-can-eat seafood place. 170 items in the buffet. I wouldn't go again, but it was a neat unique experience. On the way out I saw my old pastor on vacation with his golfing buddies, chowin' down.
Waffle House. I don't get it. They're EVERYWHERE down there in the Carolinas. And they say that they sell a waffle every two seconds. We stopped at one of these establishments on our drive down, but our waffles weren't quite cooked all the way through. And I had forgotten that some places you can still smoke in restaurants. Food doesn't taste good with cigarettes.
Last night on our drive back home we stopped at a Cracker Barrel somewhere in Ohio. I had Chicken n' Dumplins, with turnip greens and fried apples. I wasn't sure what turnip greens were, but I could guess. The biscuit and cornbread were very good, as were the apples. You can also see some deep fried okra there in the picture, which I had experienced at Benjamin's... although there they called them "Oysters Rockefeller". I like pickled okra better than deep fried okra, but they didn't have any from what I could tell.
I found this Samsung L200 camera in the surf on the beach. It didn't appear to have been there very long, had minimal water inside, but a lot of sand. The battery appears to be fine, and the memory card has a few dozen pictures on it (some girl and her friends, same girl kissing a guy, same girl and her new tatoo, some pics from Christmas, and a set of twins having a birthday party).
I've been trying to take it apart... I can only find 5 screws but the backplate won't come off the top section, I can't figure out how to get it apart where the dial is for the different picture modes. Couldn't find any info on the internet on how to take apart this particular model of camera. Anyone have any info or suggestions?
