Chili, Chili, Chili!!!!

Another great day here along the Carolina coast.  The Surfrider Grand Strand chapter had their annual lip ripping chili-lympics today down along the marsh in Murrells Inlet.  Fantastic crowd ready for great music, awesome chili and a whole lotta fun!! enjoy the pics , there's a link to more pics below

Wooden Gliders, Yaks, and High Gloss

One of the great things about the Wooden Boat Show is the amazing work done by craftsmen from all walks of life.  These boats aren't just for the older set!!!  Men like Scott Baumberger and Scott Visbaras create beautiful wooden surfboards.  Really cool gold-leaf signage being done by Stephen Filarsky.  Chip King and others are restoring or replicating classics from Chris-Craft and others.  Then original canoes and rowboats are coming from Don Roberts, Mason Cox, and John Martin.  Then comes the sails, teams come together and restore old sloops and such.  enjoy.......

It was a beautiful Saturday here along the Carolina coast and a great crowd took advantage of it to take in the Wooden Boat Show down in Georgetown.  There was plenty for all to enjoy with kids activities, food, live music, the Boat-building Challenge, as well as getting a chance to row around the harbor with the New Charleston Mosquito Fleet!  There's a link to a slideshow at the bottom of this post.   enjoy......



The Oktoberfest ended Saturday night with Galactic going off!!!  Not too mention Corey Glover from Living Colour sang with them.  Pretty cool jam to end this great festival!!! enjoy......
