May 17, 2017 - Day 6 Summerville to Georgetown 68 miles

Today was supposed to be a short day but I mixed up 2 towns' names and at the last minute had to redo the route and cancel one motel and find another. So we ended up with a typical milage day, all spent on Alt 17 again with trucks. Hot dry wind, we must have bought and drank 5 gallons of water. SC roads are terrible, rough and patched with holes, no shoulders and rude fast drivers. I will be glad to get to NC - the other bicycler tourers we have spoken with (all SB) all agree that things change once they cross into SC. We are in Georgetown...

LUCKY 58

Oct 26, 2013 - To Georgetown, SC

This was another day of being a motorboat. The trip down the Waccamaw River was a beautiful as we remembered. In places the river meanders past the trees draped with Spanish Moss, in others the river is more open, passing old rice farms. The sky was gorgeous and blue. Even though the air was cold, our enclosure kept us toasty warm. We were tied up at the Georgetown Landing Marina by 1530. We had dinner ashore and another early evening.

May 25, 2013 - To Georgetown along the Intracoastal Waterway

There are many English named towns in this neck of the woods. Colonies formed by the British. We had thought about sailing outside for the next 50 nautical miles to Georgetown to avoid some shallow areas on the Intracoastal but the forecast was stiff wind coming exactly from the direction we wanted to go……doesn’t really work. So nearly there and hoping we have made it through the worst bit where we sort of ploughed through mud a little……we made it. Lovely little seaport near a steel mill and a paper mill. A real surprise and even a great...

Nov 11, 2012 - Making time

Tonight we are in one of favorite ICW cities--Georgetown,NC. Unfortunately it is Sunday and all the best restaurants are closed. But it is a lovely little town, with a great harbor marina. I've put some interesting photos on this entry--from the pink house (not unusual) to the cheek-by-jowl new homes on the ocean side of the ICW which will certainly be gone when a hurricane hits. Best thing about today--when we came into the marina, we turned on the air conditioning. No jackets now--it is warm and sunny!

ZEST for travel

Jun 3, 2007 - Georgetown And On To Myrtle Beach

June 2 Tropical Storm Barry arrived with heavy rain but pretty much spent of high winds, thunder and lightning. It looked like there would be no formal tour of downtown Charleston as we had planned. We packed up Big Blue and decided, because of our short drive to Myrtle Beach, we would at least drive through the historic district. As we exited the freeway and headed into downtown it was obvious that on this Saturday, a lot of our fellow visitors had not listened to the weather report. We passed soggy tourists sans umbrellas wading across...
