About me: The best decision I ever made was moving to the Myrtle Beach area from New England a few years ago, along with my three dogs and three cats. I love dogs, cats, road trips, photography, writing, vegetarian food, live music, cycling and especially my daily walks on the beaches in and around Grand Strand.
