A few years ago my daughter’s and I went on a little adventure to Bald Head Island.
Bald Head Island is a beautiful barrier reef located on the East side of Cape Fear.
Sea turtles frequent the shores and are protected federally.
The only motorized vehicles allowed on the tiny island are golf carts with bicycles being the
preferred mode of travel.
It is on this island rich with American history combined with stories of pirates that we found
our collection of seashells.
Bald Head Island ends where the beginning of the treacherous sand bars and shoals begin.
As the tide went out we found ourselves walking along this ever shifting and
intriguing labyrinth of sandbars that form and then disappear into the sea.
