So anyway, I wanted to share some photos of another outing at Huntington Beach State Park here in Murrells Inlet, SC. This time, my daughter took me just before sunset when the creatures are all settling in for the night, it was so beautiful.
Huntington Beach State Park is a Painter's and Photographer's heaven! There were many photographers there that evening with tripods and super huge scopes and lens but I am sure their pictures were no better than these little digital cameras take-ha!
Murrells Inlet, SC is a fishing village and nationally known for it's wonderful seafood restaurants. Huntington Beach, SC is a state park and was originally owned by the Huntington's. Mrs. Huntington was a sculptress and across the road from the park is Brookgreen Gardens where her sculptures are displayed all over acres of property and lovely gardens. It also has a Butterfly House and a wood trail with wildlife in their natural habitat (owls, red fox, Eagles, hawks, etc.)

It is a wonderful respite at the beach where you can forget all of your troubles and be lost in the beauty of God and nature. On Saturday we saw Wood Storks, Egrets, Great Blue Heron, Green Heron, Alligators, Dragonflies, and breathtaking sunset scenes.
I loved snapping this of the little pier lookout over the marsh water. The setting sun illuminates it so nicely and it makes me want to paint or sketch this :)
Clouds and reflections are some of my most favorite subjects. Also, future paintings....
I am guessing this is Trumpet Vine that grows next to the sidewalk all along the causeway.
I sure hope you enjoyed this tour of Huntington Beach State Park and that you will one day visit this beautiful spot. There are year round camping facilities there, also. I am truly blessed that I am living only 10 minutes away from this paradise. Thank you for coming and do come again soon.
My wild heart to yours...
