I am going to the beach at Emerald Island, NC in a week and a half. The cost wasn't tooo bad and divided by several people would be not bad at all. Let me know, I think I would be interested in coming again. And, the earlier you reserve the better the price :-).
Yes, per my work demands, it would have to be in June, or the very end of May or the very start of July, depending on when son's school gets out and whether he'll take a summer class. July is my busiest month at work, with fiscal year-end needs, but the beginning of it is still doable for my getaway.
I had in mind a house in a peaceful area, but very near activities. When we lived in SC, Myrtle Beach's boardwalk was fun for a short while, but not for an entire week.
Bev, I'm a big Marguerite Henry fan & always wanted to visit Chincoteague/Assateague because of her "Misty" books, but that's much further north, as someone already stated. Per Allen, we may yet spot some wild horses....
This idea is for the summer of either 2014 or 2015. I know the rent is considerable for a beach house, so the idea is to organize 10 or 12 people for this to share costs. Thought I'd just put the idea out there to see if any CMers are interested. Let me know!
