I spent three weeks in South Carolina; most of the time was spent in Longs, not far from North Myrtle Beach. One of my favorite places near here is Cherry Grove, the beaches are beautiful and the summer rentals line its shores, each offering a pleasant relaxing vacation. Friendly is the way to describe everyone that I met along the waters edge.
No, I didn’t stay in one of those houses, nor did I stay at a hotel along the shores either, but stayed in a private home in Longs where the gardenia's all around the home were in bloom, and the soft scent surrounded the house.
I enjoyed my stay in South Carolina and even got to do some fishing with some friends in Santee Cooper on Lake Marion. We rent a guide named Gus, and he takes us out fishing, a huge catfish was caught by a friend. We of course do catch and release, so no worry the big catfish is swimming around once again in the lake.
There was many laughs shared, the food at the local restaurants was great, the company we spent with our friends was most enjoyable. I have to say I was saddened when it came time to part our ways once more, each of us promising to get together again next year.
I am looking forward to that time…
