    Bon Secour - NWR, AL

    March 30, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, despite it being Spring Break is almost deserted. Hiked along a sandy trail, past Gator Lake (no gators) to Little Lagoon. Saw lizards, a frog and a snake swimming. Then hiked through the sand dunes to the beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful white sandy beaches with very few people, had the beach to ourselves for our picnic. Ospreys catching fish and flying overhead and pelicans flying low along the surf. Also on the beach snowy plovers and a willet (a bit like curlew) feeding along the surf line.Read more
