    We went clamming this past weekend on Carrot Island which is across from the waterfront in Beaufort, NC

    The oldest population of wild horses in the US are on a barrier island called Shackleford Banks, and they are usually referenced that way.

    But some swim across the channel to Carrot Island which is a smaller island.

    I got some great pics when this guy was grazing on marsh grass at low tide. He came within about 20 feet of us.
