Hey Ya’ll. When you’re insanely busy with a kajillion things to do.. what do you do? You procrastinate, and you find other ways to occupy your time. What better time to start a new weekly post- Keeping Tabs. I am a woman of the interwebs and I spend a great majority of my time here. During that time, you can bet your sweet bottom I have tonnes of tabs open. In this weekly series, I’ll be sharing my favourite links, articles, and random things that sparked my interest this week. Grab a coffee and procrastinate with me ;).

Escaping to Myrtle Beach 3/3

Our last “full” day in Myrtle Beach was definitely our favourite. We had plans to go to to Brookgreen Gardens, which would have been STUNNING no doubt- but our lunch went a bit later than planned so we decided to just spend the afternoon exploring downtown Myrtle. It was so nice to just be carefree roaming the town.

Lunch at Collector’s Cafe

After a lively night down at the Marshwalk, both Kass and I were feeling that sleep in life ;). We got in some extra ZZZs before heading for a delicious lunch at Collector’s Cafe, a coffee shop and art restaurant. The restaurant boasts a gallery that spans 6 rooms and represents more than 25 artists. Many times during our trip Kass and I were told we looked like sisters.. well, we twinned out and both got the Pasta Du Jour for lunch, which was penne with Cajun Alfredo sauce and chicken. It lived up to the hype.

Exploring the City

I mentioned this before, but I will say it again- Always leave a little room for magic. As big a planner as I am when it comes to itineraries, I think sometimes you need to leave a little bit of breathing room for spontaneous adventure- and that is just what our last day was filled with. We grabbed our cameras and hit the town to look for interesting places to check out and photograph. We stumbled upon many interesting and brightly painted walls, a vintage RV trailer, and tonnes of beautiful foliage. Make sure to leave yourself some down time to just walk around, see the sights, and enjoy being in Myrtle!

When we were driving back from lunch, we noticed a vintage ice cream shop that we just HAD to go back to- and we are sooo glad we did! I mean, what’s a trip to Myrtle beach without ice cream? We had just seen a little snippet of the outside of the shop from the road during our drive, but I just knew it was a gem we had check out. When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised to be transported back into the 80’s via the Kirk’s vintage arcade inside. Green walls tacked with vintage coca-cola signs, retro diner tables, and old arcade machines filled the room. The vibe was totally old school and we loved it.

It’s also worth mentioning that they served the MOST DELICIOUS ice cream- you know, the kind you scoop out of a tub. I went with choc chip cookie dough, which if you were wondering, is my all time favourite.

 Alabama Theatre (at Barefoot Landing) for “ONE – the Show”

We finished off our last night with a live performance at the Alabama Theatre. I love live performances, especially when it combines singing, dancing, and costume changes! I think that live performance is such a brilliant art form that deserves so much more credit. It’s truly an art form. The One Show was jazzy and cool, but also totally current and upbeat. Gotta love when you can listen to beauty and the beast, and Tay Swift in the same show haha. (Disney for life!)

All in all- it was a real treat to escape the winter freeze and thaw out a bit under the Myrtle sun. If you’re looking for a fun girls getaway- Myrtle is definitely the place to go. If you’re just catching up, you can read post 1 and 2 here. 

Until my next Escape!
