Henry the Hatchling
Reminiscent of my first visit to Kure Beach as a young child.
We arrived after a long ride from upstate New York. Though the skies were dark we walked the beach at Fort Fisher when we suddenly felt a rumble under our feet. We realized dozens upon dozens of tiny hatchlings were bursting out of the sand making their way to the water. It was that moment when Kure Beach was forever etched into my soul and I knew it was home.
