Ready. Aim. Squirt. Don’t miss the South’s largest water fight this Friday, May 16th, during the Beach Bum Parade. Take aim at the parade floats filled with water-throwing contraptions as spectators line up along Butler Avenue armed. Get your buckets of water, squirt guns and hoses ready for battle because this event is an all-out water war for fun-loving beach bums of all ages. Mermaid Cottages has one cottage that just came open for the weekend, so score a direct hit with Horsepen Creek Cottage & Dock circa 1949.
This cottage is ideal for families, girls’ weekends or even just a getaway for two. Access the beach with a 15-minute walk or quick bike or car ride. This cottage is located directly on Horsepen Creek with a 175-foot dock for bird watching, fishing, crabbing, shrimping and kayaking.
Wake up with a cup of coffee on your private dock and watch for birds, including great blue herons, green herons, egrets, wood storks, and osprey. Sometimes, dolphins will entertain you as they swim near the dock looking for fish. Experience the ebb and flow of tides and then launch your kayak at high tide to explore the marsh.
The back yard is fully fenced in, which makes it great for small children and small dogs. The covered outdoor patio with ceiling fan and festive white-strung lights faces the marsh for incredible sunsets.
The cottage has a wood burning fireplace and comfy seating. There’s also complimentary WIFI, two TV’s with DVD players and over 50 DVD’s for you to enjoy. In addition to being dog friendly (with two dogs at 25 lbs each allowed) there’s even complimentary off-street parking for four cars.
