Down Memory Lane: Beach Honeymoon

Scenes from our beach honeymoon. June, 2001.

When Betsy and I got married in June, 2001, I still owned a house in Little River, South Carolina.  I had lived in Little River when working in North Myrtle Beach, and I had not been able to sell it when I moved to Tennessee.

Since Betsy likes the beach, we decided to spend the week after our wedding in Little River.  I had discovered a couple of beaches across the state line in North Carolina that I was eager to share with Betsy.  We spent a couple of days at Sunset Beach, which turned out to be our favorite beach.

Little River was a little fishing village on the Intracoastal Waterway.  While fishing is still a big part of the local economy, there are other attractions for tourists as well.  Casino boats dock in Little River and take people out beyond the three mile limit so they can legally gamble.  We didn’t take a cruise on a casino boat, but we did take a cruise on a jet-powered boat, the Sea Screamer, out into the Atlantic and down the coast toward Myrtle Beach.

It’s definitely not beach weather in Tennessee now, but I feel warmer just looking over these photos again.  To see these pictures and others, click HERE.


I’m grateful for each and every moment with my Beautiful Bride.

    Yes, these pictures do make it feel warmer,even in Manitoba. We have a raging blizzard outside,schools are canceled and driving is not recommended.

  3. MaryBeth Says:

    Oh George, what pleasant memories. Love the collage—it captures the fun you are having. MB

    Lovely pictures of a wonderful memory! I did check out the other ones, love the pic of the para sailor. That one picture is like the water has come up on the land, it’s almost like an optical illusion. There’s water and boats, but also buildings there. I guess you can tell I’ve never really been around the sea! Perhaps your blog will make me more worldly! I can travel whilst being a couch potato!!

    Even though I really do want another good snow before winter is over, this collage does make me long for summer.

    Does Betsy looks like she likes the beach as much as she likes the snow!!

  9. Happyone Says:

    Obviously that DOES does not belong in that sentence!

    We went to the beach for our honeymoon too, 6 month after we
    were married. I love the beach, but wouldn’t want to live there.
    too much ‘weather’ to worry about.

    I loved these shots but where are you George? I am so girlie so I loved the “ring” shot and the pic of the dolphins was very cool!

    Look at how happy Betsy looks! And, in all the pics you show of her she is just as happy today!

  14. Fishing Guy Says:

    George: Remembering fun times at the water, so neat. It was too bad your wall suffered from the rain.
