Our family spent six glorious hours on Bull Island. From the ferry, we hiked 1.5 miles hike to the beach. We had to stop over 20 times to enjoy our surroundings.

Once we arrived at the beach we treasure hunted for hours finding some of the most beautiful seashells, sand dollars, star fish, coral and driftwood.

Our beach hiking destination was the “Boneyard”, named for the hundreds pieces of Live Oak left on the beach by Mother Nature. It’s Mother Natures sculpture garden.

Fog crept into the “Boneyard” taking my breath away.

It was the perfect day. We enjoyed the Ferry ride, the long hike, and the bags of beach treasures we discovered.


Down home friends and what they say...
