Waterway leading to Sandy Island

Trip to Sandy Island near Myrtle Beach

Sherry Laible-White and Kim Gordon took a trip to Myrtle Beach SC October 31 - November 7. On November 6 they were able to get a boat ride to Sandy Island and a tour by Laura who lives on there. Laura walked them to the AME church, former school building, and her home where she served cold bottled green tea. Laura drove the boat telling them about having a boat accident a few years ago while taking the waterway to the dock. Sandy Island had no cars and the homes very small and modest. Most of the people living there were descendants of slaves.

I have always wanted to take a tour at sandy island. I watched the children board the school boat. Our children shouldn't complain ever in riding a bus and having the bus warm on a cold day. we spoke with the gentlemen that does the tours.
