Here’s to Never Saying Goodbye to Summer

Labor Day came and went, along with the remnants of Summer 2018! The days are beginning to get dark earlier and school has gone back in session. But on Pawleys Island, we never say goodbye to Summer!

Come spend a week or long weekend on Pawleys this fall, where summer never ends. Splash in the cool water, lay under the smiling sun and enjoy the quiet, peaceful beach.

Pawleys Island is a special place where unforgettable moments are made year after year. Whether it be a summer vacation or a quick getaway weekend, the memories made on Pawleys will stay with you for a lifetime.

Let the grand memories created this summer carry you through the colder, less welcoming months. Summer carries a sense of fun, relaxation and a period of slow down. Where time moves slow and told by the tides. The biggest decision is what to cook for dinner.

So here is to Summer! The fun times and sunshine. The laughter and excitement. The longer days spent with family and friends. Here’s to Summer 2018 and here is to all the summers to come.

 

Every Summer Has a Story, Let Yours Start on Pawleys Island

It is summertime on Pawleys Island and we couldn’t be happier! The ocean is inviting and waving a warm welcome to all who visit our coast. All down the beach you’ll see colorful tents and umbrellas marking a shady solace from the suns unwavering rays. The early mornings on the island are quiet, filled with a peaceful solitude and footprints left close to the surf that will soon be washed away by the incoming tide. However, the silent tranquility doesn’t last long as porch doors are thrown open, sunscreen applied and bathing suits donned.  Summer days on Pawleys are filled with sandcastle building with drip peaks that stretch high in the sky, shark tooth competitions, and swimming in the cool water. Find a good book and relax on the Pawleys Island hammock, being pushed gently by the breeze and lulled to sleep by the soothing sound of waves crashing on to the shore. For the homes that provide a creek access, you’ll notice little fiddler crabs scurrying around the mud, oysters spitting in the low tide and maybe even see mullet dance across the water top. The creek side is tranquil and provides endless activities. Paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing are all greatly enjoyed on our creek. Time is measured by the sun and the tides and the biggest question is to surf or fish. Relish living in times of the past without stress or obligation.

Keep Calm- Spring is Coming!

Winter didn’t forget about Pawleys Island this year, unfortunately. As you might have seen on the news, we had snow! Which is so unheard of on our little island. In fact, I discovered a few things about snow. It is pretty, it is wet and it is coldddd! Also, it has been determined that snow is best viewed from indoors, wrapped in our snuggly blankets, fuzzy socks and enjoying hot chocolate.

I came to the unsurprising realization that I am in fact, a beach bum and prefer to stick my toes in the sand instead of leaving footprints in the snow. Thankfully, spring is on the way. A beautiful array flowers will emerge, the friendly sun will beat down in warm welcoming rays, saying “oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for you”. Spring is a time when we run outside without shoes, sprawl in Adirondack chairs and forget the cold weather ever stopped by to visit.

There are many events in the Pawleys community during the spring time that are sure to strike your fancy. The Myrtle Beach Marathon, Easter activities, and Earth Day Festival are just a few events to be mentioned. And we can’t forget…. You say Spring, I’ll say Break! Spring- Break! Spring- Break!

We have a variety of nightly and weekly rentals for your spring break get away. Ranging in amenities, bedrooms, location and availability, just call our office to begin the search for your perfect get away. Spring Break availability is plentiful and we look forward to having you and your family spend school-free days lounging on the beach.

The Myrtle Beach Marathon comes to town (well, close to town) March 1st-3rd. This event includes a marathon, half marathon, 5K and family fun run. Good for everyone that enjoys running. Or exercising. Or drinking beer afterwards.

Easter is on Sunday, April 1st this year, so get ready for the Easter Egg hunt at the Hammock Shops! Always a fun affair for the kids and parents alike. Parents can sneak over to BisQit and view the egg-citing egg hunt while enjoying a spiked shake, veggie frites, or a specialty cocktail. You won’t need to hunt for those special treats. I also recommend the Sunrise Service for the early risers. People gather on the south end of Pawleys Island at sunrise on Easter Morning to hear a special message as the sun rises over the ocean. While beautiful and inspirational, it also tends to be a tad bit chilly- bring your own chairs, beach towels or blankets. Then, go home and feast on a wonderful Easter Breakfast!

Earth Day is April 22nd and what better way to celebrate than a festival at Brookgreen Gardens on Saturday, April 21st! Brookgreen has it all! The gardens host demonstrations, plant sales, nature stations, crafts for all, area tours and animals.  Visit Brookgreen Gardens website directly here: http://www.brookgreen.org/events/earth-day-festival

Although there are many activities and events to find around our area this spring, don’t forget about the pleasure to be found walking out of your front door. If the water is too cold for your taste, have a sand castle competition! Search for Pawleys Shells! The one who finds the least sharks teeth has to jump in the ocean. We are thrilled to share our beautiful island with you during the spring time when the island is slowly waking up from a heavy winter slumber preparing to welcome our summer visitors!
