New Yarns and Myrtle Beach

We had a quick trip to Myrtle Beach just after Christmas.  The first snow of winter came to us Boxing Day, and we started checking the weather and condos in Myrtle Beach.  Off we went and spent 7 days in lovely golf weather (like October at home).  We played 8 rounds, twice on New Years Day as it was 16C (61F).  The fairways were green and the rough winter dormant.  We stayed at the Myrtlewood Condos - pictured below from the golf course.

 We went to the beach and entered from a public parking area, along a bridged boardwalk.  When we arrived at the beach and decided which way to walk, I realized it may be hard to find OUR path to the car park, as they all look the same so Rick drew a huge arrow to the pathway in the sand.  Smart guy.
 Here is a photo of Rick hiking along the footbridge path from his set of tees at TPC Myrtle Beach.
 And of course, I went to the local yarn shop, Knit 'n Purl.  I always stop and say hi to the gals there, and find some yarn that is not available to me in Canada.  This time I chose some sock yarn, and two skeins of a sequined yarn that self stripes too. The sequins are tiny and spaced about every 8 inches.  The small sequins means it does not get scratchy, but is still sparkly.  Perfect for the shawl I have already cast on.
