I spent every summer of my entire childhood and most of my adulthood vacationing at Myrtle Beach. I've been out of the country several times and to many different locations that not only have beautiful azure waters and powdery white sand, but tropical surroundings and beautiful archeticture, but I always went back to Myrtle Beach out of wonderful memories. Now that they've torn down the Pavilion I will NEVER go back. I have such fond memories of my parents taking me there to play and of the amusement park...now it's all gone...and so is my Dad. I don't think I could bare to see that big empty hole or the commercialism of the new condos and shops that will take the place of that historic and beloved old Pavilion. I'm so glad I have the pictures in my head and on paper to remember it by. I know it was special to a lot of people but I suppose you would have to be a lifelong visitor to the area to completely understand my views.
OK...I feel better now.
