I found an old license plate when we moved into our house that my husband’s grandfather once owned. Being from another state I couldn’t figure out what they meant. I would go to Cherry Grove Inlet and at high tide you couldn’t even walk on the beach. The high tide reached the dunes and crashed violently into the rocks. Well, last summer North Myrtle Beach underwent a huge beach re nourishment project. Three million cubic yards of sand was placed along the coast—that’s enough sand to be placed on an area the size of a football field that would reach as high as the Empire State Building.
