Today we continued to head north passing through Georgetown which is an old industrial town with a steel mill (appears to be abandoned) and an operating pulp & paper mill. Much of the area like a lot of the coast is a collection of home developments probably built in the last 10-15 years. Georgetown had some very nice older homes and a very nice downtown development with a boardwalk. Further along we came to Myrtle Beach which is a holiday playground with a long history. Many older hotels with some newer ones. Likely a Spring Break type of location. Not as attractive as many of the cities along the Florida Coast. There was low level marine fog due to the warm temperatures. We are staying outside of Myrtle Beach in a smaller community called Murrells inlet which is also known as the seafood capital for South Carolina. We ate oysters and clams at a seafood restaurant. There was actually more than we could eat and it was very enjoyable.
