Georgetown, SC

Norah, our newest crewmember, she sails from the Potomac!
We arrived Georgetown, SC from Myrtle Beach and planned to stay a few days as this town is very welcoming to boaters, plus you can anchor 100 yards off the town dock! The approach by water is not scenic due to a steel mill and a paper pulp factory, but the town itself is charming and very walkable. We learned that there are more pre-Revolution houses here than in Williamsburg, VA.

While here, we connected with our Washington, DC cousins and enjoyed a nice lunch at the BIG TUNA on the long boardwalk overlooking Island Spirit. It was great to see family and our NEWEST crewmember, NORAH, who has the most beautiful blue eyes. We were concerned about taking her to the boat as we did not have a proper child life vest, so we enjoyed walking the town and catching up with our fun cousins. Dinner ashore with Cutter Loose at Limpin' Jane's was delicious!
