Georgetown Wooden Boat Show

IMGP0631Wooden Boat Show

We've heard about the Georgetown Wooden Boat Show for a number of years now, but we've never had the opportunity up until this year. By coincidence we had planned a little morning adventure with Rover Boat Tours out to North Island in the Thomas Yawkey Preserve in Winyah Bay. When we got back into Georgetown, we decided that we might as well take a cruise around town at the festival. We were soooo happy that we did! We've never seen such incredible wooden boats, so many of them hand made. We really regret not having spent the entire day there, especially since the weather was so fabulous! We'll be planning for next year!

By the way...if you've never been to a wooden boat show, there's still time this year and you won't have to go far! The Southport Wooden Boat Show will be taking place on Yacht Basin in Southport on Saturday, November 6th from 10 AM to 4 PM. We will also once again be one of the vendors for this event so we'd love to have you stop by and visit with us!

Here is a slide show of just a handful of the boats on display at the show, including many of the shrimpers docked at the marina. Enjoy!

North Island Lighthouse ~~ SC's Oldest

IMGP0602North Island LighthouseNorth Island Lighthouse

This past weekend we finally got around to visiting South Carolina's oldest ligthouse, North Island Lighthouse (commonly referred to as Georgetown Light) which sits along the shore of North Island in Winyah Bay. Thanks to the philanthropic efforts of the Yawkey family (of Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park fame), North Island, South Island & Cat Island have all been preserved and designated as a barrier island wilderness, never to be developed!

You can access the island and view the lighthouse only by boat via Rover Tours out of Georgetown, SC. The lighthouse nor the grounds around it is open to visitors so the only photos you'll get are from the boat. The trip out to the island is about 45 minutes long each way depending on how much time is spent along the way slowing down to view dolphins, sharks and whatever other marine activities going on! Once at the island, you're given approximately 90 minutes to explore the beach and the dense maritime forest of the island. A variety of shells can be found along the shore and we were lucky enough to see a peregrine falcon watching over us from atop the oaks. There were also countless numbers of monarch butterflies flitting about along the shoreline and in the forest. 

Here is where you'll find the Yawkey Preserve & North Island.


Here are 3 shots of the lighthouse taken from the boat.
