Folly Beach Pier / Pavilion / 1960s

....the Folly Beach Pier / Pavilion, in the 60's....I saw so many great bands there. Wonderful memories of sneaking in on Saturday Nights to hear Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts, the Catalinas, and other greats. And sometimes they would play on Sunday and we would get to Shag on the boardwalk for real. What a wonderful time that was!

....I live in the mountains of North Carolina now, Asheville, and love it, but there are several times during the year that I have to have my fix; stop at a South Carolina Piggly Wiggly, buy some flip flops, go direct to the beach, get some sand in my shoes and smell the ocean.

I still go to Isle of Palms, get out around the area of the old Wind Jammer and kick back.

Thanks for sharing one of my first loves--shagging.
