Make Sunset Beach Bliss Yours Year-Round!

Sunset Beach Bliss is For Sale!  After many years of welcoming our guests to the Bliss that is Sunset Beach, we have decided to move on to other adventures. So we are putting our beloved beach condo on the market. Our family has put a lot of time and love into making Sunset Beach Bliss a beautiful and comfortable beach retreat. With all the upgrades and good quality furnishings we've added the past few years, it's an excellent buy.

So if you are thinking of getting a vacation home (or know someone who is), here's an excellent opportunity to acquire a good one, a home away from home to which you can retreat whenever the great golfing, fresh seasfood, and sun and surf call you back!

See Sunset Beach From A New Perspective: Above

Looking for something spectacular to do while you're at the beach? How about viewing the area from a new angle, and from an altitude of 750ft!  We did just that, and the experience was well worth the effort. 

The office and hangars for Executive Helicopters Inc, are located at a small airport close to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach; so it was just a short drive there from Sunset Beach Bliss (about a half-hour). The staff was friendly, and very good at making sure were were feeling safe and comfortable.

Tours range from $20 to over $100. The lowest priced choice is the introduction flight, which is very short - basically, you take off, make a short loop, and then land back where you started. But the more expensive tours cover a distance of about 40 miles.

Le Catalan: The Best Taste of France on the River Walk!

The top of my family's "to do" list whenever we spend a day in Wilmington, NC, is lunch at Le Catalan. The restaurant is located right on the River Walk, with both indoor and outdoor seating, and a great view of the Cape Fear. It is quite simply the best place to go for exquisite food and an extensive selection of great wines.  This place is great for those situations when no one in your group can agree on lunch plans or when you just want to take a break and have a light snack, because the menu at Le Catalan always offers a good selection of both hot meals and lighter fare. And everything on it is of very high quality.  In fact, my family is in the thrall of several of their delicacies, whose memory lures us back time and time again (And their Chocolate Mousse is to die for!).
