South Carolina Vacation: Pawleys Island
On Friday, February 11th, we explored Georgetown, Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet Marshwalk — a few places south of Surfside Beach. This blog post is about our visit to Pawleys Island.
After our mid-morning treat at Indigo Bakery in Georgetown, we began our drive back to Surfside Beach. We exited U.S. Route 17 onto the South Causeway Road, which took us to Pawleys Island. At the end of the causeway we turned left. We visited both the marsh side and the ocean side of the island.

There are docks that cross over the marsh. We walked out on the dock in front of the church. It was one of the few docks that did not say “private”.
We found a few seashells on the beach, too, and a first for me, a starfish shell.
We left Pawleys Island via the North Causeway Road.
Next stop: Murrells Inlet Marshwalk
One of life’s embarrassing moments (written by my husband, Bob)
While vacationing in South Carolina, we visited Pawleys Island, near Myrtle Beach. We left the car parked directly in front of a little church building where an event was apparently taking place inside. As I usually do, I clicked the lock button on my keyless remote to lock the car as I walked from it, but didn’t hear the doors lock. I stopped and walked back to the car while trying to lock it with the keyless remote, which still didn’t work. I opened the drivers door and used the lock button on the door to lock all the doors. Trying the keyless again to unlock, it still didn’t work. I suspected I would have to learn how to reprogram it later. We went on our way exploring a public dock that extended into the marsh area where Linda photographed a couple birds. We then returned to the car, where the keyless remote still didn’t work. People were exiting the church, some now standing in front of and behind the car. As I used the key to unlock the drivers side door, the alarm triggered, horn blaring and lights flashing, as people around the car didn’t seem to give a second thought. I frantically clicked the buttons on the remote, hoping they would stop the alarm, but it still didn’t work. I quickly used the key to start the car and finally stop the alarm. We were on our way again. A few minutes later, we stopped again at a beach access parking area on the ocean side of the island. As we walked from the car I habitually clicked the keyless remote, and it worked. Guess I won’t have to learn how to program it after all…

Another wonderful time! The beach looks so inviting. Not to swim, but just to enjoy being there. The starfish shell would be a first for me, too. That’s funny about the key fob.
