Over the next few weeks, I plan to share about Bald Head Island. It's more than a beach or fancy place to play golf. In June we visited and were surprised how much wild life inhabits the island.
The major mode of transportation on the island is golf carts.
Our first stop was to rent a cart for the day and explore the island. We knew we wanted to explore the beaches and hike a nature trail.
Tim saw a deer and we saw many different birds and a turtle's nest marked off for safety. The island is also home to alligators and red and gray fox. Thank goodness we didn't see any alligators.
We saw a snake on the road, and we saw other snakes at the Conservancy. I think Bald Head Island would be a great place to vacation with children because there are so many nature activities to enjoy.
Next week I'll share more about the Conservancy.
