Georgetown (SC) Wooden Boat Show 2017

The 2017 Georgetown Wooden Boat Show this past weekend marked 24 years of showcasing beautiful wooden boats and one of South Carolina’s prettiest seaport towns.

This was our first year to cruise to the show, but it certainly won’t be our last!  Dock space is always tight during the show weekend, and we planned to drive to the event, until 5:04PM last Thursday when we got the call from Harborwalk Marina, telling us a slip had just become available.  At 1PM on Friday, we cast off the lines and set out on our fastest time ever to Georgetown.

Bear in mind that “fastest” is a relative term when talking about a single screw trawler like “Slow Dance,” but it was fast for us.  Heck, we even saw 17.2 knots a few of times when wind and tide cooperated.

Since you can click the above link and learn more about the show, I’m just sharing some photography on this post.  I would recommend the show to anyone with an appreciation for boats, wooden boats, good food, new friends, and good times in a quaint, seaport town.

The old Pitt Street Bridge Park.  It’s where I go to think…and to shoot.  Sunrises over Sullivan’s Island, and sunsets over the Charleston Harbor can be spectacular from what locals call “the old bridge.”  The bridge from Mount Pleasant, SC, over the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway to Sullivan’s Island, is long since gone, but the Town of Mount Pleasant has made the causeway out to the site of the old bridge, a small and wonderful park.
