In my opinion, it’s the best article I’ve read about McClellanville from an outsiders point of view. I grew up in McClellanville and have been writing about it for over a year now (publicly) and have a hard time providing as much information with as much imagery as this article is able to provide.
The article explores McClellanville from a different side than most of us see it (or originally came to know it), that of the Intracoastal Waterway traveler. Hundreds of tourists a year enter McClellanville, not passing under the blinking light on Highway 17, but putting by a blinking channel marker on the Intracoastal Waterway in a yacht, sailboat, or houseboat. They stay for a night or two, partaking in our seafood and maybe a stroll through the Museum and the Arts Council and then slip back off without a trace. It’s nice to have these visitors, for their smiles remind us of what we are so lucky to have every day.
