Thursday Doors

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 inΒ 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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚ 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.

    Bubba’s door from both inside and out has the perfect character to advertise the business!

    Judy, that’s a wonderful door. It looks like you had very good eats and were able to enjoy the water. I’d love to be there right now, not only for the food but also for the warmth and sandy beach.

    Loved the slide show! The door is very inviting. I can just imagine that place in a frenzy over peak tourist season – you’re there at the right time! What a place of rest for the soul on that beach with nothing but egrets to keep you company!

    Magnificent beaches! And as someone who is not a fan of fancy restaurants, I think Bubba’s sounds just right. We don’t eat out very much, but on Monday, I took my friend Esther to Joseph’s Fireside Steakhouse in Waterville, Maine. We were celebrating her 80th birthday.

  7. Who could resist a place named “Bubba’s anything?” I’m glad to read that your out of the cold and snow, enjoying the warmth although I know at least North Carolina has been quite cold and even snowy. I’m looking forward to Arizona and the mid-seventies next week. Enjoy more food, sun, and beaches!

    I could see going back to Bubba’s to get a picture before the first bite πŸ˜‰

    I hope the weather is closer to your expectations. It looks like a beautiful area.

  9. One of the great joys of travel is visiting local shops and restaurants. We may decide on a quick-stop meal while driving to our destination, but, once there, we opt for local flavor. Bubba’s looks like fun. Enjoy the sun!

    It’s a good thing I already had lunch cause I suddenly got a hankering for some of the stuff I saw on the menu πŸ™‚
    Nice doors indeed Judy. Enjoy the warmer temps and send our shivering regards to Bubba for the rest of us who are stuck here up north πŸ˜‰

    A well chosen break, Judy! We are watching 18in of snow melt on a 55deg day. And we are looking forward to a visit to friends on Emerald Isle NC in the early Spring!

  13. I’m pleased to hear you’re doing your bit for the economy, Judy. πŸ™‚ As far as food is concerned in this house, Mr ET requested and received from his Secret Santa this year a copy of Jamie Oliver’s new recipe book. On Wednesday night, he cooked his first dish from it – a salmon nicoise. Oh my, it looked incredible and tasted amazing. I am encouraging him to try another recipe soon.

    The beaches look lovely & what a contrast to the depths of snow you left behind. I’m going to have to talk to Australian egrets because they are just not as snowy white as the US ones I’m seeing in blog posts. They’ll have to step up & start preening!

    I could definitely go for a Bubba-wich πŸ™‚

    I’ve heard about Myrtle Beach for eons from Northerners seeking warmer climes, but I had no idea its beaches were so highly rated. I guess I should have known better when ‘Beach’ is part of their name.

    Hope you enjoy your time in the relative warmth!

    I’m really diggin your new header and this sweet pink background πŸ™‚
    I totally wanna eat at places called Bubba’s and Shack when I’m at the beach. I forget where it is I like to go when I visit my parents. They hate it, lol, but I like the grimy beach vibe and the kitsch! I had to go look it up. Pinchers! πŸ˜›

    If we’re going to support the economy, certainly it behooves us to do it WARM. Your photos of beach and birds look so inviting and soothing — what a great way to do winter!

    No eating out this weekend for me. Going to hold down the fort here and work on a new recipe or 2 πŸ˜‰ It’s gotten too cold for these cranky knees to get out much. Enjoy that porch sitting!

    Do they have tiki bars there? I’m all about a good tiki bar. It looks like a gorgeous setting–makes me very envious!

  27. Taking a few bites before remembering about taking photos is something that happens to me often. Maybe I should just take a photo of the food anyway.

    • That would certainly have a long lasting positive effect. I remember an Erma Bombeck segment years ago where she was going to have a piece of birthday cake. She took the cake and slapped it on the hips of her pants and said something to the effect of that was where it was going anyway. πŸ™‚

    Wow Judy, you certainly struck a chord with this one! Had to laugh at the name of the restaurant – so very southern!!! We love eating out here in the Charleston area, especially when the touristas leave and we have our world back to normal! We let them take over every summer and holiday so that the local eateries can remain in the black and stay in business but we all breathe a sigh of relief when they leave LOL. Bubbas looks like tons of fun – door and all!!
