Hunting Island

Last weekend while in Beaufort we also visited Hunting Island.

Hunting Island is a short 5 minute car ride from our "little piece of paradise."

Hunting Island is home to a pretty cool lighthouse.








 








Of course no trip to an island would be complete without walking on the beach.

Let's go!!

The walk is a short one along a boardwalk.











Not the season for the Sea Turtles but we did find this....

Horseshoe Crab who had gone on to meet its Maker.

We had such a wonderful time visiting some of the Sea Islands of South Carolina.
We are very fortunate that they are only a short 2 1/2 hour drive away....wish they were even closer!
