West End of Town Marsh - View from Radio Island

Town Marsh is across Taylor's Creek from the Beaufort waterfront. Many call this island Carrot, but Carrot Island is further east past the cut near Carrot Island Lane. Both of these are dredge-spoil islands. After the intense heat--sticking close to the treed thickets--the horses are gradually making their way back over to the more-open inlet area. Hard to see, but there are two hungry horses in this photo.
