I recently spent a weekend in Myrtle Beach for an annual get together with my sisters (our 10th such outing). We packed a full weekend in with lots of eating, little sleep, walks on the beach, hiking and birding at Huntington State Park and Murrells Inlet, zip lines, shopping, laughing, and just a bit of brother bashing.
The non-birding sisters were pretty tolerant with the birding sisters and we saw some good birds and bird behavior. One of the birding highlights was the brown pelicans we saw flying low over the ocean, diving down to feed, and perched on the docks at the salt marshes in Murrels Inlet.
