Last week's post featured sand dunes along the ocean in the spring.

This week, I backed up from where we were standing, and included a glimpse of the ocean along with the windswept sand dunes.

On the other side of the dunes there is a long beach that stretches down to the water.

We were not able to access the beach due to the nesting birds, but I am sure that in the summer it is quite a busy place.

This was a nice little stretch without any houses, but on either side of these dunes the houses are packed two and three deep.

Nature and man - both vying for this beautiful little spot. For now, nature is holding on - I hope it stays that way.

  2. I remember your sand dunes of spring! I looked at this photo trying to imagine that it was cold and windy, but couldn't conjure up that image. It just seems warm. Although living near water is nice, I also think beaches should mostly remain natural. I've never seen a beach area enhanced by housing!
    Have a nice holiday,

  3. I hope it stays that way, too, Kathy!

    The sand looks so white and litter-free!

  4. Hi Rosemary - we could definitely use some warmer weather - we just got almost 2 feet of snow over the last two days. Brrrrrr

  5. Hi Aiyana - When we look at sand, we think of the desert and heat. Right now I bet those dunes are not even visible under all the snow.

  6. Hi Lynda - We don't usually see such white sand in this area - it was beautiful.
