Bear Island

What a weekend! Did you know that Kayaking could be considered another form of hiking? Me either. However, try kayaking out to Bear Island from Hammock's Beach State Park at low tide. The interesting thing is that you get to see a lot of shell fish, like conch. We saw a lot of conch on the way out. The boys got pretty excited when those things started squirting water at them.

The weather was warm and pretty much stayed that way. We stayed covered and sun-blocked for the most part, but there were still a few sun burns to report.

The island is full of shells. We brought back a lot of sand dollars, parts of conch shells, clam shells, scallop shells, and lots of shells we just don't really know what they are. Most were amazing and beautiful. Pictures of the shells coming soon. We did a lot of hiking and exploring around many parts of the island. The way the sand has moved, Bear Island has almost joined Emerald Isle to the north.

To end out the trip, we passed a pod of dolphins on our way back in Sunday morning.

Fun was had by all.

  1. Post a pic of Brandon's impression of Ozzy with the inverted red triangles under each eye (from missed sunblock).

  2. :-) LOL. I will see what I can do. They are fading pretty quickly. It is funny because I have a post about Brandon's impression of Iron Man back in January.
