Friday, September 20, 2013 Myrtle Beach

Tuesday, Tom spent some time cleaning the outside of the motorhome.  In the evening, the gang went to an Italian restaurant to celebrate Rita Fordham's 70th birthday.  The food was good and the socializing even better.  A delicious chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and icing was the finishing touch on a fun evening.
Wednesday, a repairman from Saf-T- Glass came to repair our windshield that got a chip on the way down here.
Thursday, Tom and I met a school classmate of mine at Gordon Biersch Pub Brewery for lunch.  Faye Copenhaver and I were classmates all through school and she is now living in the North Myrtle Beach area.  It was a nice get together talking about the past and catching up on our lives.  In the evening, the gang assembled for a fajita potluck dinner. Fajitas, black beans, chips and salsa followed by a dessert of pineapple upside down cake.  Yummy!!
Today, Friday, Tom and I went to the Tanger Outlets. The Croc shoe outlet was our first stop with both of us getting flipflops.  Then we roamed around stopping at various stores and ending at the VF outlet.  In the evening we went to Broadway at the Beach, another shopping, dining and entertainment area.  We decided to eat dinner at Carlos and Charleys, a chain restaurant that we had seen numerous places and had not eaten at.  We were very disappointed in our meal- this was the first Mexican? restaurant that we had been to that did not have chips and salsa unless they were paid for extra, the beans were more like baked beans and the portions small for the cost of the meal.  Tom voiced our displeasure but the only response we got was because this location only had 4 months of good business they had to manage this way.  Sorry but we ate at Johnny Rockets in this same location earlier in this month and found good prices for good food.
