Huntington Beach State Park

This is an amazing park with so much to see and do!  Earlier in the week we went to do the kayaing but now we have returned to explore!  As you enter on the causeway, On one side you have freshwater and on the other saltwater.  There are so many birds! I read over 300 species have been recored here!   It was neat to explore the winter retreat of Anna Hyatt Huntington and her husband after seeing her work at Brookgreen – what a unique home and neat to learn about how it was built (without any plans!).  The park is owned by Brookgreen Gardens and leased to the state of SC.  What is really neat is to walk down the historic road (no longer used to enter the park) with fresh water lagoons on either side –  this is where I got to see my first baby alligator.   The Kerrigan Nature Trail takes you right to the freshwater lagoon where we saw several alligators on land and in the water. How amazing is that 2,500 acres of ocean front property have been preserved for all to enjoy?
