Last night, our last at the beach, we were in Murrell's Inlet for dinner and then a trip to the Marsh Walk for music. Departing Flo's after dinner we immediately noticed driving that one of our tires was low. Quick detour to a gas station on Route 17 and ... we had a flat. We were staying in Myrtle Beach itself, so it would be quite a drive back.
A nice guy stopped with his son, introduced himself as a Georgetown volunteer firefighter. He said he noticed us pulling across the road with a flat tire. He asked if he could help as he had a tire repair kit in his truck.
Not only did he remove the nail in our tire and fix/plug the hole, but would not accept anything for his help. We "donated" $20 to his son for ice cream money (nice to see the smile on the son's face).
Without his help we would have probably been delayed a day coming home and would have had to call for emergency road assistance.
Such a pleasure to run into nice and caring people. We didn't get his name, but if anyone knows a Georgetown volunteer firefighter that lives in Sandy Plains let him know we are thankful for his kindness.
