Getting There Is Half the Fun

On our last trip to the coast before school started, we actually went down to Bald Head Island.

If you have never heard of Bald Head...it is a very quaint little island only accessible by passenger ferry. There are no cars allowed!!! That means you need a golf cart to cruise around the island!

Once on board, Emma was helping "Nature Jack" plan our stay!

From the ferry ride over, we had a spectacular view of the Southport waterfront!

And we were able to see Oak Island and the lighthouse.

Here we are pulling into the dock at Bald Head. You can see "Old Baldy" in the distance.
