Sketch pads and paintbrushes in hand, an artist and her daughter explore every inch of a North Carolina barrier island. They paint the sun as it rises, find sand dollars and sea urchins, and see snowy egrets, alligators, and bottlenose dolphins. And as darkness falls they watch a nest of sea turtle eggs hatching, a perfect ending to a day and a summer of discovery.Pencil sketches, handwritten notes, and beautifully detailed watercolor painting invite you to experience this unique island world through an artist's eyes.
