Yesterday we set out early for Cape Island, SC for a day on the beach. Despite and uncooperative dinghy engine, abundant burrs and prickers on the walk, and voracious biting flies it was still a great day to be out. The beach was covered with huge shells including a beautiful 8" whelk shell we took home. Fallen pine tress also littered the sand and showed us the most dramatic example of beach erosion we've seen yet. Click on a picture above for a summary of the impacts we checked out on our walk.
