Huntington Beach State Park site #111
Murrell’s Inlet, SC
We slowly welcomed the day and took our e-bikes for a nice little ride around the CG. There is a nice Education Center at the marsh boardwalk that was opened so we went in for a look around. There were a few aquariums and terrariums inside. I didn’t get a good shot of the fish since they were constantly moving but this terrapin was nibbling on a piece of shrimp.
This young alligator didn’t like the way Gin looked at him but he seemed to practically smile at me.
We rode further down the paved park road to a parking lot and walked the boardwalk to the beach. It’s nice that they have several boardwalks here to get over the dunes. It’s much better for the dunes, and it’s much better for folks that have difficulty walking in the soft sand like Gin. She enjoys the ocean and she was just trying to soak it all in since it will probably be quite a while before we get back here.
I can understand why Sherry doesn’t mind running so much when she runs along the shore here. It’s just beautiful and not many people this time of year.
We were enjoying our walk back to our e-bikes on the boardwalk when this little fella jumped out at us. He was a little slow so we just enjoyed looking at each other.
After our excursion, we sat outside to watch the Panthers lose another game. I’ve always said that your team is only as good as your back-ups because there will be injuries throughout the season. While the game was on, Gin got the turkey in the GE Roaster so that we could eat our Thanksgiving meal early. We give thanks every day so why not. The roaster cooks a good turkey. We’ve also cooked a roast in it. We set it outside on the grill table so that the interior of the MH won’t get so hot and we don’t use LP. We had cooked a couple of sweet potatoes over the campfire the night before and Gin fixed the cranberry relish before we left the house. The dressing and spinach was cooked fresh in the MH. We’ll be eating leftovers for a few days but we enjoy a quick, good meal.
I wanted to get a shot of the full moon when I took the trash out but it was too cloudy. I think tomorrow will be another beautiful day. Maybe we can ride the great paved bikeway they have here that runs beside Hwy 17. We take one day at a time and enjoy what comes our way.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
