|Monday we took the girls shopping at the Market Commons. Market Commons is one of the new concept shopping complexes that have condos and apartments above the stores. People can live and work there. The complex was built on the land that
used to be the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. While the girls were shopping, I went to Warbird Park, built on the same property. It's a memorial dedicated to the men and women of the United States Air Force who lived in the community for forty years.

Megalodon was the largest predatory shark in the world. In fact their avarge size was eight times larger than that of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The shark that this jaw belonged to was believed to be approximately 50 feet
long, and had an estimated weight of 52 tons.
