Litchfield Beach!

So, later that day after we finished our 5k race, we met up with Jake's parents here in Columbia for a brunch of sorts at Waffle House before hitting the road to Litchfield Beach for the week! The beach was perfect. We had perfect weather the entire time until our last night there, when it finally thunderstormed. We spent our days on the beach, in the pool, in the hottub, visiting Myrtle Beach, shopping, eating, but mostly just relaxing. We spent our nights going out for dinner (usually AMAZING seafood - especially the conch fritters!!!) and hanging out in the condo and hottub with Jake's parents. It was a great time, and a very much needed vacation from work. I had not been to the beach for a week in forever, and definitely not since I started working! I definitely did not want to leave to come back home. And, on our last day there, I just happened to get stung by a jellyfish for the first time in my life! It hurt SO BADLY. I never did see the jellyfish, but I definitely felt it. Thanks to Jake for pouring some vinegar stuff on it to take the stinging away. And as a side note, a week after the sting, just when you think it is all okay and going away, it comes back ITCHING like nothing has ever ITCHED in my life. So, if you are ever stung, be prepared for that. But, I did get a fairly decent tan. And, a big thanks to Jake's parents for letting me join them on their family vacation! Here are some photo highlights from our week.

Our caricature we had done at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach! I love it!
Do you think it looks like us?


  1. looks like a fun trip... except for the jelly fish sting. i agree that it is one of the most painful things ever!

  2. hahaha - that's a GREAT pic of you two! :)

  3. Haha, that was a fun time. Props to the parental units for providing the good time =D. She is so overplaying that jellyfish sting... psh... she was playing in the sand on the beach the 2nd after it happened.

    The worst of it was about a week later when it began to itch...

  4. I wasn't "playing" in the sand, Jake. I was pacing back and forth wondering what in the world that awful pain in my legs was from. Must have been a jellyfish! However, you are right about the itching being the worst part!!
