Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, dropped by Rowboat Dock & Dredge on their way back to Georgia from a recent fishing trip in Pennsylvania.
The Carters and their security detail happened to stop for gas at Interstate 77 Exit 33 when they noticed Rowboat's headquarters on Williamson Road. They dropped in unannounced to say hello to the staff, owner Bob Wilson said.
Wilson said he had been on the fishing trip with the Carters but was driving separately and had no idea they were going to stop at Exit 33.
Wilson and the Carters have been close friends since Wilson's days with Habitat for Humanity from 1985 to 1992. They've fished together twice a year for the past 10 years, Wilson said.
