Hubby and I just returned from a wonderful week along the Grand Strand. I have to say, though, that we returned to Surfside Beach four times in just 6 days!
Along the way, we stopped to talk with folks in local stores, restaurants and their own yards! We thought we would learn more about the area just by speaking with people who live there and we were right.
Everyone we spoke with was so friendly and helpful and we learned more from them and this forum than we could ever have learned on our own. THANK YOU to everyone - the decision is made - Surfside it is!
Coincidentally, we stopped at a local gas/convenience store and saw two men engaged in a lively conversation (all positive, it appeared). When the one man left, I approached the other to inquire if he lived in the area. After giving us a very positive assessment of Surfside and welcoming us as potential residents, he introduced himself as the new Mayor and gave us his business card.
I have followed the "issues" about the town government and was pleased to learn Doug Samples has been elected as the new mayor. He seems energetic and certainly was met by several happy citizens as we stood and conversed outside the convenience store.
Two more years and we'll be on our way out of Texas - cannot wait!
