Had to take my son to Beaufort for some Knee Surgery and was out looking for the Micro Brewery Bay posted (found it!). Saw this place and decided to take a walk. It’s a 1/2 mile board walk around a retention pond. I’ve seen many a bird in the swamp and rivers but never so many species in such a close area! Turtles, alligators, a deer laying in the bushes… Beautiful place! Then of course you have the boardwalk and tower by the “Sands” boat landing close as well. If not for the Sand gnats Beaufort would be perfect. Oh yea, first time in forever I’ve seen the Huge Bullfrog tadpoles! These suckers are 4-6 inches long.
