In the late 70's, Dawn, Ken, and our 2-year old son Scott spent three months
living in an ocean front motel in Myrtle Beach, SC. Ken was going to school at
the telephone company. We were young and enjoyed the Spring Break atmosphere
in Myrtle Beach. That was in the days of carpeted vans with murals painted on
the sides, streakers, and a house band at
called "Wild Country". The band could play anything - absolutely any song you
could think of - they could play it. But they only played when someone gave
them a dollar or a beer. Now, they get a little more than a dollar for a song.
Now, "Wild Country" goes by the name "Alabama". April-May was a Go-Go dancer
at the Bowery and she would dance up-side down on the ceiling. The Electric
Circus was the best arcade in town. We still like to go back to Myrtle Beach
whenever we get a chance. The Carousel at the Pavilion Amusement Park is one
of the most beautiful we have ever seen.
