2019 Camping World, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Seemed the time for an upgrade.  We found a great deal on a toy hauler camper.  Prior to our trip to Myrtle Beach, we did phone negotiations.  Before we even left for our trip to South Carolina we had purchased a 2018 Thor toy hauler.

With all our travels it made sense to buy it, especially since we got such a fabulous deal on it.  With the toy hauler we can take our Can Am motorcycle and also tow our Jeep so wherever we go and no matter what the weather, we have transportation.

Here is the garage with the extended deck, another awesome feature.

A giant thanks to our salesman, Kieth Johnson and our genius with the numbers, Sofiane Yahiaoui for making this deal happen!!

We recommend Camping World in Myrtle Beach if you are looking for that home away from home.

If you love any genre of music, you need to tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Countless displays of music achievements, costumes, and history and under one roof.  They have also now added a room called the Garage.  You can actually play guitars or keyboards and jam with a studio band.

Below is only a small taste of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has to offer.  Enjoy.

If you plan to visit, you can get a member pass which allows you to visit for free for an entire year with one cost.  We bought the membership because we visited there three times.  Also know that they have free live concerts often.  And we plan on coming back next year.

ROCK ON!!!!!

Hawaii is rich in scenic beauty. The interesting thing about Kona is that it is mostly lava rock. As you drive along the roadside you can see where the lava flowed during the volcanic eruptions.

We always enjoy finding fabulous waterfalls.  Akaka Falls was fabulous.   There was the huge falls but while you are making your way toward it you would pass smaller falls hidden in the greenery.

This falls is fabulous.  There are several small falls in the same area but the largest one is Akaka Falls.

Walkway to the falls.  Although a lengthy walk, the paved path made it easy.

Lush scenery enveloped us as we walked the lengthy path to the falls.

The black sand beach is quite the tourist attraction.  The sand is much courser that regular beach sand. This is the area where if you are lucky you can see huge sea turtles. Unfortunately we did not see any.

Seahorses are very fragile so in order to hold them the biologist would carefully wind the tail around your finger.

Never thought I would try eating seaweed.  It was actually quite good but if you didn’t shake a bunch of the sea water off it can be quite salty.

Yes, I am playing with an octopus.  In order to get their attention, you put your fingers on the surface of the water and move  them to get their attention.

There are many interesting things to do in Hawaii.  This is only some  of what we saw.   We do plan on going back to Hawaii, but to another Island.  Really looking forward to that.
