Whew.. its 9:00 P.M. and I finally am winding down. What a busy day. Started out with some personal errands to run followed by a Board of Directors Meeting at Noon that went until about 1:30. Then had to drive by a potential listing. Then more errands and last stop before 5 was to my cell phone provider to figure out why I can't get or make any phone calls!!! This is so frustrating.. One would think when you upgrade your phone to better technology, it would be able to make a call. NOT!!!!! Well after going over some checks etc... it was decided to switch out the phone AGAIN - now I have to add back all my apps, configure the phone again, email, ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... gotta love technlogy.
Murrells Inlet is located south of Surfside Beach and Garden City. Murrells Inlet is split between two counties Horry and Georgetown Counties.
The town was once primarily a fishing village, but has grown substantially. It is most known for the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk—the 1/2 mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine saltmarsh—and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.
Continuing on our tour of the county our next stop is at the northern end of the Myrtle Beach area at a town called Loris.
LORIS QUICK FACTS:
23 miles from the coast of South Carolina
7 miles from the North Carolina state line
Loris was incorporated on July 26, 1902

Loris began as a railroad town serving the lumber industry in the late 1880's and became the first town in the state to have its own newspaper, high school, bank, telephone system and doctor.
