Friday- heading toward Myrtle Beach

We were up and off the dock by 7:30 this morning. We're headed up the ICW toward Myrtle Beach.

Yesterday was a great day in Georgetown. Peggy and Terry visited antique shops. The rest of the crew  went on the history tour on the trolley. Georgetown is the third oldest town in South Carolina. And, it was one of the ones not burned by Sherman during his march to the sea. As a result, there are some beautiful homes from the 1700s. The incredible thing is that one of those houses is still being lived in by descendants of the original family! Talk about deep roots!

After wandering about Georgetown, we ended up at the Independent Seafood warehouse, where we bought fresh shrimp. And, it really is fresh! The shrimp boats bring it up to the dock. They unload it at the open doors, sort it, and put the shrimp in big tubs. Then, they pull it out and weigh it to sell it to you! 

Finally, we ended up at WildFish Grill. It was a new restaurant in Georgetown, and they were working on a soft opening. The official opening is not until next week. So, we got to try some of their proposed menu items. Carol had fish tacos made with Mahi Mahi prepared with a blueberry BBQ sauce! And, this place had the best cornbread. A total yum, as Linda would say.

So, we're off to a great start. Terry and Peggy had also visited the Kudzu bakery, so we had strawberry muffins and Danish on the menu this morning. We celebrated the end of National Salad Month and National Hamburger Month with some trivia questions. We carried on enough that Rich said we appeared to be loopy even without drugs. Hmmmm...... We may be looking for new crew soon.
