Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA

Nice place to have a back yard patio deck...... I am calling the shrubbery in the foreground the area's namesake "myrtle" until someone more knowledgeable about plants corrects me.

North Ocean Boulevard hosts countless beachfront condos and private homes in addition to bike lanes on both sides of the road. I kept staring at the bike lane logo each time I passed it and was struck by the realization that the rider's head looks more like the little black plastic plug-in thingy for Mr. Potato Head's eyeball than it does a bicyclist's head.

This oceanfront home gets my "coolest tree overhanging the driveway award."

And if you're not rich or fortunate enough to have direct oceanfront access, the city offers numerous access points with some free parking at many of them.

Or, if your feet long for concrete or planks on which to walk, downtown between 2nd Ave and 14th Ave they have a recently completed "boardwalk."

The 2nd Ave Pier features a restaurant, bar, and fishing/walking pier.

A section of the "boardwalk" with recently planted palms.  This will be stunning when the palm fronds get bigger.

After all that walking, it's time for yours truly to rest the weary muscles.
(Sorry to blind you with the pasty white sun starved New England skin).
