Myrtle Beach – The Copter Ride

Last weekend,  Motor Man and I ventured to Myrtle Beach. There was a Late Model (stock car) race there on Sunday afternoon, and we knew a few guys that were racing.

Our GPS and Mapquest said the trip should take us about six hours. It took us ten.  Motor Man stopped at quite a few antique shops along the way so I could do some browsing.  And he stopped several times for me to take pictures of Spanish Moss.

And palm trees.

Quite different from our trees here in Virginia. But they couldn’t compare with our fall foliage this year.

Sunday morning, before the race, we decided to take a helicopter ride over Myrtle Beach. I say “we”; I’m really not sure which one of us decided that we should do that. And I still can’t believe I climbed in that helicopter. And that my hands didn’t sweat at all! I’m usually very nervous when I’m in any type of aircraft. But this was fun. And the scenery was great.

We flew over the intracoastal waterway.

Golf courses.

The Grand Strand.

And, of course, the ocean. Well, just a small area of the ocean.

Looking back now, and after seeing the pictures, I remember that it was most definitely MY idea that we take this helicopter ride. Regardless of what Motor Man says.

  1. And I was definitely surprised that you took that ride. And truly amazed that it was your idea.
    Now I want to know what you threatened Motor Man with to get him in that copter…as scared of heights as he is…almost as scared as I am!! LOL!

  2. … yep, I was told that Motor Man was “thinking” about doing a copter ride… and a few minutes later I got the first picture … sort of reminds me of a certain vintage airplane flight where he just ” jumped right in!! ” Great pics, clear day!

  3. awesome! Would love to see that beach from the air and then experience it first hand on the sand 🙂

  5. Fabulous shots! What a great trip!!

  6. Isn’t it just the most fun ever? Helicopter rides are the best because the pilot can slow down or stop over interesting sights.
