Beach view north from where we stated the walk.
It was around four in the afternoon.
The sun shining in our eyes and glistening on the water.
Sanderling and a few people walk the beach.
Not crowded like Myrtle beach.
No high rises on the beach....
Instead, Sand dunes line the beach.
I enjoyed taking photos of the glistening water and sand.
About one and a half miles in is a mailbox.
Journals for beach goers to write in.
We saw eight Piping plover on the beach.
We walk on...
Past water sculpted sands.
In about two and a half miles the beach ends and we follow the inlet west.
Until we find a path to bring us back to the beach.
We then walk north toward the car.
I find a sand dollar.
Not much else other than bits and pieces of sand dollars.
Our shadows long....
We use our hands and legs
to make a heart. After a few attempts we get it right.
About ten in total up and down the beach.
Beach and sky start to blend.
Fishing trawler attracts sea birds.
Wish we had our scope to ID them.
Lots of Laughing Gulls on the beach.
Willet and Red Knot.
This was the only Red Knot on the walk.
The sun is getting lower.
I like taking photos into the sun to get bird and people silhouettes.
We continue our walk north.
I look south...
Beach and sky become one.
I love how the slick water on sand brings the sky down to earth.
Sun getting lower...
Looking north....pink above the pier, blue below.
We are back to the car.
A gorgeous sunset and beach walk.
We leave Myrtle Beach today and go to Huntington Beach for two weeks.
More beach combing and walks.
See you there!
