Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
There's more to Myrtle Beach than beach. I hit a few of the local tourist attractions. The first was this Alligator farm. It's feeding time! Below that is one of the smaller alligators. It is also home to Utan, the largest crocodile on exhibit in the United States. I couldn't get a good picture of him, but he is 20 feet long.
|After the Alligator Farm, was Ripley's Aquarium.|
|Below are pictures of their walk-through aquarium.|
|There's an amusement park right on the beach. This photo is from a boat ride I took -- see next page.|

Myrtle Beach Zoo (actually just outside Myrtle Beach)
My last stop was at a zoo just outside Myrtle Beach. The little fellow below was born January 26, 2004 so he was only about 7 months old. Below him is a picture I want to put on my refrigerator to help my diet. And below that are two really cute animals -- they look like twins!
|The zoo also had an exhibit of some old cars. To the right is one of their collection.|
Lessons Learned from the Titanic
At Ripley's Aquarium, they had an exhibit on the Titanic. Below one of the signs was a list of four lessons we could learn from the Titanic. I made my own list, borrowing only a little from their list. Tell me what you think.
