Warbird Park – Myrtle Beach, SC

As always, we like to take a moment to salute our brave men and women of the armed forces and, so, yesterday we paid our respects at Warbird Park in Myrtle Beach, SC – a small park to recognize the service of members of the Myrtle Beach Army Air Field (1940-1947) and the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base (until 1993 and its closure as a military base).  Today, the airfield is Myrtle Beach International Airport and much of the old base has been developed into a mixed use commercial/residential area called Market Commons.  If you would like to know more about this base, we recommend this article from Wikipedia.

Whoa, Qannik, when hu-dad said we were going to see a warthog, I didn’t know he meant a jet.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
