Ok ... do you have your resume ready? April is just around the corner and you need to be applying now if you plan to get out of here at the end of your one year lease.

I sincerely hope you find work in the NW but it's not going to come down your street and knock on your door. Times are hard right now and you need to get on the ball looking for a job in Seattle or that general area.

Go Home Scotty ... make you wife and yourself happy ... have a house full of little children and in later years tell them about the time you lived in South Carolina. It's been said over and over life is too short to be miserable.
First post was a typo I have a one year lease. I'm going to try to go month to month after my lease is up. My landlord is a pretty nice guy and I have made quite a few improvements to the property so I'm hoping he will go for that.

I know times are hard that's what led me to a job here lol I actually have been on the ball looking for a job either back home or keeping my eyes open in the LA area. I received a call from the company I work for 2 weeks ago that they just got a large account in WA and wanted to let me know. It would only be part time work now but would grow into a full time position which would be nice. So there is the possibility to move home and work part time + take on work from a 2nd company to tide me over.

Honestly I could move home and get work from several places any time I want, but it would not be in the field I came out here for. That would make coming out here and getting the experience in this job pretty much pointless which im not going to allow to happen. Im not going to sacrifice a good career to go running back home I would rather be unhappy for a couple years and get the experience that will make the rest of my life better.

Oh and no kids, I dont like them to much

BTW you have responded with respect and courtesy to all posters even those who "lost their manners" for awhile. You can't help the way you feel that's why Dorothy said, "There's no place like Home!" Someday you'll be back where you need to be...hang in there, lots of us transplants understand.
Hey thanks for the suggestions! I will have to give Mr. Fish a try....we have been trying a lot of different restaurants since we have been here and have finally found a couple that we would go back to.

I will also have to give the farmers market a try....maybe kind of like Pike Place market? I think we may have eaten dinner in that area a couple weeks ago. Is it behind that "Daughters of the Confederacy" building? I noticed several long open buildings back there wondering what they were.

The Surge? Puleeze. All it has are advertisements for bars and strip clubs.

It sounds to me like you are not a "small town" kind of guy, and PI certainly has that "small town" feel. Pawleys Island is a beautiful place, but you are right that it feels like there isn't much to do if you're accustomed to having the amenities that come along with living in a metropolitan area like Seattle. I really enjoyed my job in PI and loved the people, but I am moving this summer to the Charlotte area simply because I am a city person... always have been and always will be. I love the beaches and the local joints in Georgetown and Horry counties, but quite frankly, I miss the museums, diversity and cultural experiences that come along with living in a metropolitan area, which is why I am leaving. This area will always be special to me, though.

I would suggest hitting Myrtle Beach up if you're looking for something new. Also, Brookgreen Gardens is virtually in your backyard and is gorgeous! My husband and I were addicted to Nacho Hippo while we lived in the area; the Market Common is a great place to go on the weekends. Check out some shows at House of Blues. Now that summer is here, there is so much more to do in the area if you're willing to deal with the traffic and tourists.

Hang in there, and chalk this up as just one more experience in your life; now you know that PI isn't your cup of tea, but you never would have known if you hadn't ventured out here.

Been to Myrtle a million times by now and done Brookgreen X5 lol I do actually like Nacho Hippo they have a fish taco there that is pretty good, we go there semi often.


My lease is up January 1st and the wife and I decided we have had all we can take. We are packing up a moving truck in December and going to try to be home by Christmas. Sometime between now and the first of the year need to figure jobs out but whatever at this point.

Having an "end date" has put me in a better mood lol

Ditto to what Rapture said. It sounds like you reached the only reasonable decision. Now hopefully, this thread can be put to rest, which will put all of us in a better mood.

BTW, you're driving too far for fish tacos. Quigley's has a killer blackened mahi taco served with an excellent salsa verde.

Hallelujah and Congratulations Scotty!

In 25 or 30 years you will look back upon the time spent in South Carolina fondly.

Well Scotty, sorry it didn't work out for you, but that's the way it goes...you never know unless you try, right?
Just remember, if you ever decide that you'd like to return for a visit, we'll leave the light on for ya'...cuz that is just the way we Southerners do things.
Best of luck to you

Thanks for good wishes guys! In January I will have lived here 2 years and have seen/done a lot. Even though it has definitely not been my favorite experience im glad I stuck it out because it was worth it for the 2 years job experience. Now that I have the experience it should be easier to find a job where I want and that is what the whole move was about. It would have been nice if I liked it here but the job was more important in the long run than living some where I liked.


Pawleys Dude - I have been into Quigleys quite a few times and have had the Mahi tacos which were pretty good. The owner is actually a former Seattleite, Josh I think?? and is a pretty nice guy. When we first got out there it was one of the only restaurants that I actually wanted to return to but slowly stopped going after we were not happy with the food a couple times so I kinda forgot about it. I will probably go check it out again though next week.
