We started our trip off right with a couple of days at the beach.  On the way to the beach we got close to the coast and Yelped for seafood restaurants because I was looking for a salad and some boiled shrimp for lunch.  Yelp found this great little spot at the end of an old road in Orangeburg, SC called Hutto Seafood Market and Kitchen.  We had a very sweet cashier who was inquisitive about how we found them. Heather is always quick to tell people our story, which I certainly don’t mind, so they learned of our journey. We both ended up with a steamed plate of shrimp and vegetables along with some hushpuppies that the owner threw in when she found out we were traveling across country (now you see why I don’t mind).  The food was delicious and the service was great.

As we were leaving the market, a very curious and friendly man sitting in his car in the parking lot asked us where we were headed and after hearing our future plans, sent us along with good tidings of safe travels.

When we arrived at MB we had a great room overlooking the pools and beach.  We got all checked in and immediately went for a walk on the beach.  Ahhh sand, salt and seafood.

Walking down the beach in the morning. My favorite thing to do.

The lazy river pool. It doesn’t get much better than this.

While sitting at the lazy river catching some rays I was able to setup reservations to go horseback riding on the beach.  This has been a dream of ours forever but cannot find too many stables that have work horses for me to ride.  It felt awesome to get up on the back of that horse. Heather loved the ride but was very jealous about not being able to ride Mr. Tonka.  Of course she loves the biggest breeds of all animals.  Thank you Inlet Point Plantations.

The highlight of MB, riding horses on the beach. Me and Mr. Tonka.
