This painting depicts a trawler as it makes its way through Winyah Bay – an estuary created by the meeting of the Waccamaw River, the Pee Dee River, the Sampit River, and the Black River in Georgetown County. The historic port city of Georgetown sits on Winyah Bay and is the home of the annual Winyah Bay Heritage Festival, which celebrates fishing and hunting in South Carolina.
