Field Trips

CCCC hosts Field Trips to photograph interesting items in the coastal region of the Carolinas. We meet as a group at a point of interest and help each other as we capture images. A video slide show, complete with transitions and music is assembled using members images and shown at the next meeting. The entire field trip experience is fun and helps us improve our photography.

Aquarium Field Trip

Huntington Beach State Park - Murrells Inlet, SC - March 15, 2019

Huntington Beach State Park (HBSP) is one of the most popular places in the area for spotting a large variety of birds, especially during the breeding season in March. There are a few short and easy walking trails/roads throughout the park, with the most popular being the causeway for bird photography. If bird photography is not your thing, you can visit the Moorish-style castle, Atalaya, or go to the beach. Also on the site are three bathrooms (at different locations) and a gift shop where you can purchase snacks.

Please Contact Michelle Tinger at by March 11th to let her know if you plan on going on the trip and go out to eat afterward.

To car pool, we will meet at the Little River Lowes Food parking lot near the ATM machine at 7:30 am. Otherwise, we will meet 8:30 on the Causeway at HBSP. That will get us there about an hour before low tide when the birds are more active.

There is a $5 fee per person to get into the park. There is an extra $2 fee for entrance inside Atalaya.

We will regroup for a late breakfast at a yet TBD place nearby, possibly on the Marsh Walk.

North Carolina Zoo - Asheboro, N.C - Monday April 15-16, 2019

Arlene Cook and I are staying at the Comfort Inn, April 15th, and 16th. It takes about 3 hours to drive. The Zoo is a huge complex and will take all of April 16 to visit with 5 miles of walk ways and two areas. So get out those comfortable shoes out! The Comfort Inn address is 825 W. Dixie Drive, Asheboro, N.C. 520-257-3115 or you can book on-line. There are other motel/hotels, but this is close to the Zoo and has a good breakfast (so I am told); entrance room doors face into the hotel for added security. Lunch and dinner is TBD, however, we can get lunch inside the Zoo. I do not have a block of rooms at the Comfort Inn. It does book up quickly, so make your reservations NOW, so you are not disappointed later. I had to change the date because they were having a convention warning is fair! Please let Marsha know if you will be going and what nights you will be staying. If you have questions, send them to her and she will address at the regular meeting. More info to come as we get closer.

Please let Marsha Kercher, Field Trip Coordinator, know if you are coming. Contact her at
