Scallawags – such a delicious word and you can hear that Southern drawl.
In the 1800’s Anchorage 1770 was home to the Ribaut Club, nominally a literary club but better known as a retreat for “heroes, bon vivants and scallawags”. Rumour has it that history is about to repeat itself with the Ribaut club reinstated but maybe, this time without the scallawags.
The 250 year old Anchorage 1770, in Beaufort, South Carolina has recently re-opened its doors as a private hotel.
The beautiful historic city of Beaufort, the second oldest city in South Carolina after Charleston, is located in the heart of the Sea Islands and South Carolina low country.
With its antebellum architecture, centuries old moss-draped oak trees, historic city centre and extensive walking and cycle paths it’s on the New York Time’s list of must visit destinations and a highlight of our cycling tour in October to Georgia and South Carolina with Halloween spent in the most haunted city in the USA, Savannah.
The full itinerary for this small group tour which follows a circular coastal route in Georgia and the low country of South Carolina starting and ending in Savannah can be found at https://www.bigyellowsuitcase.com.au/tour/savannah-ghosts-cycling-and-southern-hospitality-october-2016/
One thing that can be guaranteed is a generous helping of southern hospitality.
