I was too early to drive the Loop Road, so I cut through the campground at Washington Park to park and wait. On the way I saw a deer, so I parked and followed it into a clearing. There I discovered six of the resident deer population … two or three resting in the shade […]
I was the only person at Sunset Beach Monday morning. No surprise. Could barely maintain my balance to snap a few photos of the whitecaps. Got to the Loop Road gate too early, settled for the beach shots and some beauties of local deer. Encountered a very relaxed group of six near the Loop Road […]
