The sand built up higher than normal this summer with so many weeks of fair calm weather. The waves were able to continually deposit sand on the beach, without the ripping away. These past couple of weeks we’ve had quite a bit of rain, which hardens the sand making it easier to walk. In the photo below, see the dark strip? The storm surge is stripping away the sand. We’ve gone out agate hunting a couple of times, have not happened on a good agate bed yet – but we have found quite a few beauties.
Tsunami Warning Whistle – they test it on Wednesdays at 11ish. I’d love to capture the expression of the resident Gull.
LOTS of migration going on!
The boys say this has been at Road’s End for a long time, I’ve never seen it before this week.
I love boys at the beach. It’s about 6:30 – 7am. They like to get out first thing and see what the midnight tides washed in. These hips are about to slim down!
