For the Carolinas

A green heron perches on a barnacle-encrusted log in Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

I met one of my favorite birds, a green heron, right before the sun came up at Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina in the summer of 2007. I loved that little park, any place that gets me up long before the sun has to be pretty special. To all those in the Carolinas and elsewhere in Florence’s path, I hope you will be safe and sound. Look after each other.
