Our State magazine has a lovely, nostalgic article with so many "OMG, yes!" triggers, about what going to the beach used to be like (except our cottage didn't even have air conditioning).

I saw that! So many memories.

We talk about this sometimes. I have friends with a house at Kitty Hawk. The things people expect are so outrageous, like the homeowners should belong to the Y so the renters can go. Huh?

In the cottage we rented at AB, the furniture was cast off, light bulbs hung from the ceilings, sand was everywhere. There were 2 pots in the kitchen: big and little. No TV. So much fun!

In the sixties we went to Ocean Drive/Myrtle Beach since Hazel destroyed Carolina Beach in 1957. The Pad, The Pavillion, The Beach Club, no high rises, golf at Pine Lakes CC, the Ocean Forest was still there. You could lay down in the middle of 17 after Labor Day weekend.
