Where in Carolina Country is This?
The June “Where Is This” photo by Cari and Abi Leffew features a metallic sea turtle sculpture located at the intersection of East and West Main Streets near the pier at Sunset Beach, Brunswick County. The garden and sculpture situated at the public beach access walkway is dedicated to Carmel Zetts, a devoted volunteer and coordinator of the Sunset Beach Sea Turtle Watch Program, for which she founded. Carmel, known as the “Turtle Lady,” and other volunteers have walked the beach every morning for more than 20 years to pick up trash and to watch for loggerhead sea turtle egg nests that need protection, reports reader Althea Gregson. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Lisa Ashebrook of Cary, a Brunswick Electric member.
