Huntington Beach State Park

We are spending this week at Huntington Beach State Park in Murrell's Inlet, SC about 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach. It has become sort of an annual event to rendezvous here with Durelle's brother Mart and his wife Ann as they head north for the summer. It is absolutely one of our very favorite places to camp. It is a large, sprawling setup with over a hundred sites, lots of ranger led activities, great bird watching, and literally miles of nearly uninhabited beach. This is probably our tenth or so visit. I thought I would be able to post a good alligator or bird picture or two...maybe later. Today we took the pups to the beach for one of the rare occasions where they can romp off lead. I was a bit worried about Baxter who six months ago was a stray. I made sure he knew who had some treats and tested him a bit then let go. We've done it many times wth Belle so I wasn't worried about her. She knew the rules. Look at her run. She was 14 in January and is still an energetic, happy pup.

Stayin' at home in Hanahan, SC

It has been quite a while since I posted to this blog, and I wouldn't want my myriads of readers to get the idea that I had quit. When we are not traveling, there is certainly a lot less to write about. I have posted a few self-explanatory pictures. The doe was a dawn picture. I don't do many of them. The tree in the back yard is a Bradford pear in bloom...and it turns red in the fall. The rainbow just popped up for a few brilliant moments one evening. You could actually see both ends and everything in between. When I stepped around the corner to capture the complete expanse, my camera said, "memory full"! ARRGHH!
On the 13th of April we'll head up to Huntington Beach (SC) State Park to spend a week with Mart and Ann who are northbound to their spot in NH. Then, on 13 May, we'll head to Westchester, NY for my 50th college reunion. The following weekend I'll be participating in some of the graduation activities at West Point to include some black tie stuff and breakfast at the Supe's house. I hope I can get some memorable pictures without acting too touristy.
