The Gang (minus one): Vicki, Tina, me, Chris, Jo, Brenda

Great girls’ get-away in Myrtle Beach. Trip co-ordinator Brenda got us great deals at terrific and challenging courses (Founders, World Tour, Prestwick) and most of us did manage a birdie somewhere along the way. I don’t think it ever rains there as we had gorgeous weather every day – though Hurricane Sandy may soon change that.

Birds seen along the courses included great egret, great blue heron, pileated and red-bellied woodpeckers, Carolina chickadees, fish crows, mallards, mute swan, yellow-rumped warblers, boat-tailed grackles, double-crested cormorant, blue jay, cardinal, turkey vulture, mourning dove, gulls, hawks, eastern phoebe, and mockingbird.
