Hurricane Florence

UPDATE: Hurricane Florence

First off we know many of our readers are experiencing the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Our hearts go out to everyone as they work to return to normal life, and hopefully that’s soon.

Much of the coast of North Carolina and immediately inland are still feeling affects of the Hurricane. We just want to pass along this link to the American Red Cross Hurricane Florence Relief Fund as a show of support.

Myrtle Beach ended up being spared some of Florence’s more destructive forces, and thankfully we’re enjoying some tranquil weather. Clean up along the Grand Strand has been minimal and our resort is in perfect shape. After Hurricane Mathew two years ago we’re extra thankful and heart broken for the coast to our north and inland as they recover.

It’s forecasted to be rather warm and sunny, so please do consider a stay, we’d love to have you. Stay safe, and we hope to see you soon.
