>>> GCH Quik Review On a recent visit to Sea Pines our GCH Editor arrived by boat and secured a berth at the Harbor Town Yacht Basin. Longtime Harbormaster Nancy Cappleman and all her attendants were cordial and welcoming and made the stay a pleasant one. Excellent eateries and stores surround the Basin, so finding good meals and supplies was a snap. Evening was a magical time as the famous Harbor Town lighthouse ignited the night sky and transformed the surrounding waters into a sparkling backdrop.
