A Rainy Day In Pawleys Island

Life In Pawleys Island

So what’s to do on a rainy day in Pawleys Island?

Why not pack up your umbrellas and come discover the wonderment of the Hammock Shops Village?  It’s one of the area’s most treasured landmarks. There are over 20 charming specialty shops and restaurants in a historic park-like setting.  They are all clustered beneath moss-draped oaks that are surrounded by beautiful gardens of azaleas and camellias. Hammocks, benches, rockers and cool, summer breezes beckon you to pause, relax and enjoy your day in the heart of the Carolina Low Country.

One of my favorite shops to visit is the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock Shop. They make hammocks in Pawleys Island and sell a variety of them at their location at the Hammock Shops.  The hammocks are cool, comfortable and sturdy and the remarkable cotton hammock designed by riverboat Captain Joshua John Ward still soothes and delights all who discover it.  If you happen to go to the hammock shops, you will be able to watch how they are made during certain times of the day and week.

The idea for the hammock came from native South Carolinian Joshua John Ward, a riverboat captain who ferried rice and supplies between the vast rice plantations and nearby Georgetown and Waverly Mills. Cap’n Josh found the lumpy, grass-filled mattresses on his boat too hot for the sultry coastal summers, so he set about designing a soft, cool bed that would serve his purpose. The result was a hammock so strong and comfortable that its handmade design has endured for more than a century unchanged and unchallenged. That is the hammock we sell today as the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock”. – Pawleys Island Hammock Shop

There’s a lot to see so be sure to plan for a day!  Shop a little, eat a little, and then shop a little more! 🙂
