Coastal Observer Letter to the Editor
No place quite like home
To the editor:
We've been gone six months now and the old folks home where we are in Mount Pleasant, just 60 miles south is OK, but we miss Pawleys.
We miss Glenn, April and Johnnie and all the village friendliness at the Pawleys Island Pharmacy; Johnnie Joseph's dental office in Georgetown; the tennis bunch at Heritage and Heritage itself; that happy community by the Waccamaw on whose waters I kayaked with Mary Gail and enjoyed warming coffee after; Capt. John's Fish House, a neighborhood kind of place; our church small faith group; the Swamp Fox theater; breakfast at True Blue; St. Mary's in Georgetown; the i beach on the island itself and sunrise friends we often saw there; HealthPoint and Litchfield tennis; the Coastal Observer, which we still take; and others who contribute to the quality of living in Pawleys, which is indeed a special place.

After touring many different communities, what a lucky find...tucked between three wonderful golf courses and bordering on the Waccamaw Intercostal Waterway we found Heritage Plantation. We love the fact that Heritage is a single-family community, each home unique with bits of continuity throughout. Properties are all well maintained and plenty of good neighbors for everyone. Since my husband and I are both golfers, our home is nestled off the 12th tee box with a beautiful view of the pond. My favorite time is the early morning when all of nature is waking up and I sip my coffee and have my quiet time while sitting in my screened porch. In the evening, we enjoy watching the sunset from our patio and having a glass of wine, while the birds come to nest in the trees over the pond. Coming from Chicago, there wasn't much "quiet time" so we are enjoying our bit of paradise...but I think the amenities really sealed the deal for us...gorgeous Olympic size pool, full exercise room, tennis courts, a beautiful marina and the golf course right out our back door. There are also plenty of activities and clubs you could join and if you just want some "alone" time, you can have that too...There is something for everyone...

My husband and I bought our house in Heritage in 2003 because we liked the house, the neighborhood and the general location (5 blocks from the Intracoastal Waterway and 2.5 miles from Pawleys Island beach). We moved here from Maryland and knew no one living in this area. What we discovered was an unusually active and welcoming community, great amenities that are included in our Association fees, and an historical area dating from the 1700’s. Because there are monthly luncheons at different restaurants for the ladies I quickly met new people. There’s at least one social event open to all residents each month. We take water aerobics from a volunteer certified instructor/neighbor; we’ve learned to play golf; I’m an active member of the Home and Garden Club and a neighborhood book club; we have a slip for our boat in the Heritage Marina. In the area, I’ve joined the Low Country Herb Society, studied Spanish at the adult education center and attended luncheon lectures by authors of new books, part of a program that features a new book and author every week. Life is good!
Connie and I decided to relocate to the greater Myrtle Beach, SC area in 1997 or 1998. We eliminated the north side of Myrtle Beach and began looking on the south side. We stumbled into Heritage Plantation sometime in 1998 and purchased our lot in July of 1999. We began designing our “dream house” then and began building it when we moved to the area in May, 2000. We moved into our “dream house” in May 2001. I did the general contracting, obtained the permits, hired the subcontractors and dealt with the Heritage Plantation Architectural Review Board during the process. In all, it was quite a pleasant undertaking. We have lived in Heritage since May 2001 and we have enjoyed every minute of it. Both of us have made many new, good friends and we love the neighborhood and area. All of my experiences with anything in Heritage, Georgetown County and the State of South Carolina have been very pleasant.
