At the southern tip of North Carolina is Bird Island, which represents our southern border with Little River, the N.C./S.C. natural boundary. From the Sunset beach, you can walk along Bird Island beach to the jetties at Little River Inlet (round trip is 5.7 miles!). This is a beautiful walk and there are many birds. Near the jetties is the famous and mysterious Kindred Spirit mailbox, where you will find notepads and pen to share your thoughts, hopes, dreams, poems or whatever and to read the thoughts of other fellow trekkers to the spot.(worth the walk).
One day my wife and I also drove the hour south to spend the day at Huntington Beach State Park, one of my favorite birding spots. Some of the summer birds are gone to warmer places, but as always, there were many birds to commune with and get a few photos. Below I will share with you some of the pics from the trip including introducing you to my most favorite subjects--my family critters. There will also be a few critters from Sunset Beach, Bird Island, and Huntington Beach.
