Today is the first official day of spring! With the change of seasons, there comes countless more reasons to love the Pawleys Island area during this special time of year. Take a look at just a few of our sales team's favorite things about springtime in our home.
Many residents love seeing the return of plants and wildlife that accompanies the arrival of spring here. Claire Yarborough can't wait to see "Dogwoods and Azaleas ladened with blooms heralding the new season." Denise Talbert loves to watch the birds return and empty her feeders.
In addition to welcoming flora and fauna, Spring Break brings many new faces to our area as well as returning friends and family. It also provides a great opportunity to take advantage of all the local amenities and indulge in an exciting "staycation" at home. Kat Loftus loves seeing all the Spring Break families who visit in March and April. She also looks forward to sunrise Easter services along the beach.
Warm and sunny weather gives residents the opportunity to spend more time outdoors and on the water partaking in the many aquatic activities available here like fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or boating. Lindy Mickle looks forward to springtime because "flounder fishing is coming up!" Living along or near the waterfront, you can enjoy being spectator of these activities too. Paul Yarborough likes this time of year because the marsh grass greens and he can watch northbound boats on the Intracoastal Waterway from his home.
Everywhere you look, you will find residents out and about enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings here. Shawn Roper's favorite thing about spring is seeing this increased movement throughout our community. "There are more walkers and joggers, more bikes, more golf carts, each sharing a neighborly greeting as they pass by," he describes.
With spring in the air, eating and drinking outdoors becomes a must. Exterior living spaces like porches and decks often become a greater gathering space than dining rooms during the spring and summer months. Many local restaurants also offer patio seating and outdoor dining options so you can continue enjoying the fresh air and sunshine even at meal times. Lindy Mickle looks forward to the annual opening of one of her favorite outdoor spots, DeBordieu Colony's Gazebo Bar.
Spring is truly an incredible time of year to spend in the Pawleys Island area. From days on the beach or time on the river, everyone can find a way to enjoy the gorgeous surroundings we are blessed with in this place where we live.
