North Beach to Murrells Inlet

Howdee all,

I have been loving this walk we take from the campground.

A short walk to the beach..then we head north.

This was our first walk north to the inlet.. We were on the search for Razorbills that had been seen near the jetties between North Beach and Murrells Inlet.

This particular day was windy and cold..

We bundled up..Hats, scarfs, gloves and many layers..

The wind picks up and blows sand around the beach..

A monsters hand reaches out of the sand..
