13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunrise at Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. The center island is named Goat Island. For the past 24 years, the owners of Drunken Jack’s have put the goats on the island to help keep the underbrush down. They are put on the island during mid-spring and taken off during late fall. They are cared for by long time employee & celebrity "Bubba Love", Jerome Smalls, who feeds and tends to the animals daily by boat.
