In tussle between sleep and sunshine, sunshine wins

Posted by JEFF KIDD on March 10, 2014 

So what if we lost an hour of sleep to daylight saving time this past weekend? Spring-like weather was incentive enough to rise early Sunday and check out the Lowcountry outdoors.

My wife and I didn't quite make it out by sunrise, but the light was still slanting as we drove through downtown Beaufort, then out Sea Island Parkway to Hunting Island State Park. As you'll see in the attached photo gallery, we interrupted breakfast for an osprey and a flock of wild turkeys, saw several raptors and two raccoons, and watched the morning turn to afternoon.

I like living in a place where there is a change of season -- if you don't have to shovel snow. But I suspect I'm like many of you when I say I've had it up to here with winter. I'm ready for spring to bloom.
