Day 18 – Rides galore
Learn the ASL signs for ‘ferris wheel’ and ‘jump’
We got to Myrtle Beach around dinner time and decided to walk over to the Pier 14 restaurant for dinner. It’s nice to be able to walk to a restaurant from our hotel after a long drive. This was a nice restaurant that was on the Pier (hence the name) and had a great view of the ocean and the big ferris wheel.
Of course the kids wanted to go over to it to see it up close. After dinner we walked over to where it was. It’s called the SkyWheel and it’s all enclosed. It probably needs to be enclosed as it is 200 feet above sea level! This thing is HUGE. I decide that it would be fun to take the kids up in it. I asked my husband if he wanted to join us and I got a quick, NO! from him.
He is afraid of heights and there was no way I was going to get him on this thing. I decided to take both kids on as Hartford would be sad if we went on without him. My husband was afraid that he would freak out on the ride but he didn’t. Both kids had a blast and couldn’t believe they were up so high.
After the SkyWheel we went over to the area with the rest of the rides. We took the kids on one more ride as it is crazy expensive in Myrtle Beach. It was also very late and past everyone’s bedtime. I’m happy that my kids love rides as I’ve finally got companions to join me. We are having a blast. Myrtle Beach is very touristy but if you go with the attitude that you are going to soak up the cheesiness it has to offer then you’ll really enjoy yourself.
