As we left the beach I took this photo of the Danger sign. Just offshore there a extreme currents and we are warned of the dangers of swimming into those currents.

Sail boats often pass through those waters between the beach and the sandbar.

Today’s photo shows one small part of the beach club on the island. It is interesting that just outside the club you have more sand and you are closer to the waves. But what you get with the club is the bar (smile).

Also, you get two swimming pools, two restaurants, massage service, and towel service.

Notice that the lady is walking barefoot.

We are headed back to Seabrook and look forward to walking on the beach. The sign shown is one of several which mark public access to the beach.

The CDC has advised that travel should not occur over Thanksgiving and to limit gathering to family living in the same house. So we have chosen to spend our holiday on the island with takeout turkey from a local deli. Just the two of use. It is our way to avoid a gathering.

This photo shows pelicans skimming the waves off shore on Seabrook Island. A little googling finds articles that indicate “Skimming permits the birds to take advantage of an aerodynamic phenomenon known as ground effect”.

Following is an article, from Stanford University which explains skimming, why birds fly low over water. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Pelicans looking for fish offshore from Seabrook Island in South Carolina.
