If you had known, a year ago, that a global pandemic was coming in 2020, what would you have done differently? Me? I would have tried harder to see the world outside of my apartment.
One of my favorite Outside memories of last year was my weekend trip to Myrtle Beach. Prepare for a quick throwback post, everyone!
The best friends and I drove down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and one of the best friends actually drove the 10+ hours by herself. It was an insane feat, completed with copious cups of coffee, an endless playlist of any songs she requested, and occasional rest stops. What can I say? My best friends and I are a little crazy.
Anyway, behold! Myrtle Beach’s boardwalk, including the famous SkyWheel, one of the country’s tallest ferris wheels.
I’ve always loved ferris wheels and don’t have a fear of heights, so I had a fantastic time. My best friends, however, had slightly less of a fantastic time.
Best Friend 1: *clutches Best Friend 2’s hand for safety* Jade, can you PLEASE sit still? You’re shaking the whole car!
Me: *simply turns around in my seat* It’s fine, I want to see the view!
Best Friend 2: *shrieks as the passenger car sways in midair* Oh my God, you’re going to make the line snap!
Me: It’s not moving that much, we’re fine—let me take this photo over here.
Best Friend 1: I swear, if we die, I’m going to kill you!
I’m happy to report the best friends and I all survived the ferris wheel. Here’s my proof of survival—solo photo op.
And of course, I can’t do a post of Myrtle Beach without actually showing one of its beautiful beaches.
Last but not least, a shoutout to my two best friends, without whom I wouldn’t have enjoyed Myrtle Beach as much as I did. Yes, that is my forehead. I can only do so much with my non-existent photography skills and my best friends look beautiful, so this is the photo we’re keeping.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer safely. We will beat this pandemic together! Wear your masks, social distance, and wash your hands.
