Greetings this Thursday from Murrells Inlet, Horry County, South Carolina, part of the Grand Strand. The Grand Strand is a continuous stretch of beach which runs along the northeastern part of SC.
The Myrtle Beach metropolitan area, including Murrells Inlet, has a year round population of around 450,000 but attracts more than 14M visitors each year. How do these beaches stack up against others around the world? Well, the Travel Channel ranked in the top ten beaches and Myrtle Beach was #2 behind Hawaii.
Since tourism is the main industry, there are over 1,900 restaurants to choose from when dining out. So, as all good visitors do, we are trying to contribute to the health of the SC economy.
This week we visited Bubba’s Fish Shack. Now, doesn’t that sound like a place you want to visit when you are staying right on the beach?
I forgot to take a picture of the food before I started eating hence there are a few bites gone. 🙂
When I’m not walking the beach, I’m admiring the beautiful snowy white egrets that we see as we drive around.
Here’s to a good weekend for everyone, and an opportunity to support your local restaurant community. We must do our part. 🙂 Have you eaten someplace fun or made a new recipe lately? Do tell.
As always, this post is linked to Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors, January 11, 2017. Norm lives north of most of us, but he keeps all the door aficionados corralled each week so we can appreciate a variety of doors from all over the world. Check it out.
