The Inlet Wave of Freedom

Betty Jo & Alex Sing in Murrells Inlet

Today as I celebrate “Riding the Inlet Wave of Freedom” and the 4th of July I can’t help but take stock in how fortunate I am to live and work in Murrells Inlet as did many generations of my family before me. My granddaddy having the foresight to make his home along the creekfront allowed my father to do what he loved and become a pioneer in the fishing industry with the Capt. Alex. Not to be outdone my mother may very well have owned and operated one of the first women owned marina’s on the South Carolina coast at Inlet Port Marina in Murrells Inlet.

While these former Inlet Icons are gone and the locations of the thriving family businesses of yesterday are now the very parking lots that allow visitors to access the Inlet I am so proud of my Heritage and thankful for all the sacrafice that occurred to make us all Free.

So today as I celebrate the “Inlet Wave of Freedom” I am very thankful that my family decided that Murrells Inlet was the best place for them to land and that they had the freedom to make choices and follow their passions in this wonderful place I call home. I am also thankful to have been given the honor to be able to help many families find homes they love in Murrells Inlet and share this wonderful place with anyone who will listen.
