..::This is my travelogue::..
I finally made it down to the beach this year! I literally haven’t been since I was maybe 16 years old. Crazy I know, but life happens, so my sisters and I decided it was time for a trip!
We stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club Anderson Ocean Club (whew!). The view from the room was amazing I had a great view of the beach from the balcony. You could walk out of the resort and be right on the beach. Every morning we would wake up and overlook the beach marveling at its beauty.
During the day we mostly relaxed at the beach collecting sea shells and soaking up some sun.
When it was time to eat we had to go to a seafood place right? I mean we’re by the ocean. The concierge was a great help and recommend Hook and Barrel, a great wine and seafood bar right down the road.
I had the pan seared scallops in a creamy corn sauce. It was mouthwatering if I could have 2 plates I would have, but alas I couldn’t.
The next day we went to the Wild Water and Wheels water park which was included in our hotel price(score!). I haven’t been to a water park in years and it looked lot different then I remembered. In the sense, I didn’t want to get in the water. But I couldn’t resist the temptation of the water slides! Too bad they closed at 5 ? but I’ll live.
That night we went to Crocodile Rocks Dueling Piano Bar for drinks and atmosphere. The musicians were crazy talented and we kept the drinks flowing within reason, I mean a girl gotta get home, doesn’t she? But I could have listened all night. We ubered back to my room and slept silently on the freshly made bed as I wondered why don’t I have housekeeping at home?
Last day turned in to something a bit more relaxing. For breakfast, we headed to Donalds Pancake House. Their food is truly the definition of home cooked. I had the Mexican Skillet, it’s definitely not for the faint of heart with fresh jalapenos peppers but it’s was worth every spicy bite. The hash browns and eggs have you ready to take a nice nap afterward and relax by at the beach which we did.
It’s definitely a place for friends and family alike. This was my first trip and it was perfect, I couldn’t ask for it to be any better.
