Weekend at the Beach

Last Saturday I took the family to the Little River Blue Crab Festival. What a great event! Little River (SC) is only 25 minutes south of where we stay in Sunset Beach…this is a huge festival with bands, tons of seafood, kids rides and lots of vendor booths selling pretty much anything. We met our friends Steve and Gloria there (Steve is a rep for some important lighting lines that Carolina Rustica sells, such as Golden Lighting, Designers Fountain, and Access Lighting (coming soon!). He is a great guy and a former lighting retailer himself, and he lives in nearby N. Myrtle Beach.

The kids enjoyed a few rides, particularly the bouncing-sling which lets you leap 20 feet up into the air. We had fun mingling with the crowds, which consisted of tourists, bikers, locals, and lots of other types of folks. Cheryl and I enjoyed the best crab sandwiches we have ever had, with a side of fried oysters. Yum! We will be back…maybe Carolina Rustica will sponsor a booth. I’m sure we could find something that would sell at this event, like some of our best-selling Iron Artistica home accent items.
