A collection of Myrtle Beach photos, taken during an afternoon walk
The coastline of Myrtle Beach is part of the 60-mile long Grand Strand, a stretch of beaches on the Atlantic Coast in northeastern South Carolina. The area attracts water sports enthusiasts and families looking for beach time, but during my off-season visit I encountered mostly birds and people taking solitary walks.
I spent many hours walking up and down this beautiful beach. Some of the passers-by smiled at me, others started a conversation. The birds were less interested in interacting, often walking away as people approached. There were times when I was one of the few people there – especially in the early morning – and for a few moments I felt like it was just me, the ocean, and my thoughts. I even danced a little – when no-one was looking.
Here are photos from my strolls. I liked the beach just the same on sunny and rainy days.
