We had nothing planned for Saturday, February 12th. We thought we would just spend the day at our Airbnb ”Seaside Cottage”, enjoying some down time. It isn’t easy doing nothing.
Shortly after 10:00 am we decided to take a drive to Vandy’s Point, located at the far southern end of South Waccamaw Drive. Vandy’s Point was indicated on Google Maps as a Tourist Attraction.
Our access was denied about an mile from Vandy’s Point by a private gated community. You are able to walk on the beach to get to the point (at low tide only, I read). Public parking is available a few blocks away from the guard house. We did park and walk out on the beach. The guard told us it was a mile to a 1-1/2 mile walk on the beach to reach Vandy’s Point. We chose not to walk to the point and returned to Surfside Beach.
In the afternoon we decided to make a return trip to Pawleys Island to see the southern part of the island. We had seen only the northern part of the island the day before. We exited U.S. Route 17 onto the North Causeway Road, which took us to Pawleys Island. At the end of the causeway we turned right and drove to the island’s parking lot South. We walked out on the beach. I took several videos from the beach, which I have stitched into one video of approximately 60 seconds for your listening pleasure.
I had hoped to find more starfish and other seashells. None caught my eye.
We left Pawleys Island via the South Causeway Road and returned to Surfside Beach.
