My grandmother bought this house in her retirement as a pre-fab ranch in 1969. She made the newspaper for being the first house brought to the area on a tractor trailer. She chose Long Bay for it's quiet residential neighborhood and proximity to art workshops at Spring Maid Beach. She called it 'The Counting House' and rented it yearly to military families from the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base.
My earliest memory of staying here is when my grandmother rented this house out, but kept the master suite (the current library) for herself as a get away. We came to visit and had to sleep in a tent in the back yard. It was not until the high school that I got to go again. It was a great beach for our daughter when she was a toddler. We would come Memorial Day week before the summer rentals began. My grandmother Momma Bette passed away in 2003 at 102 years old.
In 1989 Hurricane Hugo hit and knocked the Vagabond off it's foundation; thus, she became the 'Vagabond'. Our father designed the additions and she was rebuilt on tall pilings according to federal guidelines.
When we go down with family, we find it most comfortable with two families and the grandparents.
