We entered the Latta Nature Center and Preserve and parked near the historic Latta Plantation.
The restored 1800 cotton Plantation offers tours but we decided that we just weren't in the mood. We wanted a quiet lunch in the sunshine.
We followed a short trail to the water's edge and sat on a swing to share our lunch.

The Carolina Raptor Center is in the same Nature Preserve so, after putting our lunch remains back in the Jeep we headed inside to see the birds.
It was a weekday so we practically had the Center to ourselves. The Raptor Trail is well planned, You wander through the woods for about a mile, stopping at many enclosures housing various raptors along the loop trail.
My camera just wouldn't cooperate when I asked it to focus on a bird behind the fencing. It evidently thought that the fence was my intended subject. As a result, I got very few pictures. grrrr
|which one is real and which one is the emotional support owl?|
Today was inclement so we stayed in, did some cooking and cleaning, and generally got ready to move south again in the morning. North Myrtle Beach next stop.
