First Images Of Murrells Inlet

After years of living in the mountains, the images of our first month in Murrells Inlet are quite different but no less inspiring.


As a very outdoor oriented person, working indoors can be quite constraining, so I need an office environment with lots of windows and air. My study in Murrells Inlet provides me a stunning view of the salt marsh.

As an early riser, I love being greeted by sunrise at the start of each work day. Each morning is different with the changing sky conditions, so the first light of day hits differently, but it never disappoints. Here are a few of this month’s spectacular sunrises.


I share my days with the wondrous wildlife including the numerous amazing birds. They come in an stunning array of sizes and colors, many with wingspans bigger than my dogs. I am struggling to learn the various species (over 300 have been identified in the surrounding state park) so if you spot a mistake, please email me and let me know.


Of course, birds aren’t the only creatures who share our coastal world. Alligators are plentiful, though found much more often in the fresh water lagoons than the salt water marsh, but lots of smaller creatures abound as well.


Of course, part of coastal living is the threat of hurricanes. The storms are incredibly powerful and destructive, but Mother Nature is resilient. The following three photos were taken from the deck outside my study, all showing how quickly the salt marsh rebounds after a storm.

    My question is this: did you have to give up the spacious house for one that is smaller or is the new house just as spacious? And because you are by water are you bothered by mosquitoes?

      The house is a very different style and a little bit smaller, but we love it.

      As for mosquitos, the answer is picaridin.
