It’s a new year and a new me! Just kidding- same corny, silly me; just a new year full of hope, adventure, and resolutions. New Years is a time of traditions, reminiscing, and the excitement of NEW! What are your traditions?
In my family, we always eat hoppin’ johns, collards, and cornbread for good luck, wealth, and prosperity on new years day. We also jump into the ocean at midnight. Polar plunge! I 10/10 do not recommend.
Many families have a tradition to come to Pawleys Island every single summer. The vacation originated with the grandparents bringing their children, and now has evolved to 3-4 generations coming each year! So many memories are made on Pawleys Island-where times seem to slow down and people are reminded of the good ole days. Cooking meals together, spending the days frolicking on the beach, and ending the day with porch sittin’. We tell time by the tides and the sun. Oh, the stories we would hear if these walls could talk. Some of my favorite memories are on Sundays’ sitting outside at the beach with my whole family after a big meal. Bob Marley was playing through the speaker, beer was flowing and the sun was shining.
As we navigate this strange time, many family traditions are hard to uphold. The tradition of family time is deeply rooted at Pawleys Island. We love to see your family return each year and enjoy hearing your stories during your vacation.
Work-cation, stay-cation, school-cation, or simply vacation, Pawleys Island is here to be whatever you want it to be.
