The Living Beach – July 1, 2017


We had a cool and grey Canada Day here, but it was a fun day nonetheless. We started the celebration with our friends Barb & Avy’s lovely beach wedding – I lost track of how many lobster sliders and cookies I ate! Sooooooo good!  And ended the day with some awesome fireworks.

And it’s also time to celebrate the living beach :-) It’s been interesting to see how the beach has changed (or not changed) over the last 11 months. One thing is for sure – there are a lot more rocks on the beach this year than there were at this same time the last two years. The last two years, I could ride my bike from one end of the beach to the parking lot. This year, there are still far too many rocks blocking the way. But there’s definitely a lot more sand on the beach now then there was a month ago.

And looking back at the beach one month ago compared to today… a big difference!

This is the same rock in March and in June – it shrank!

What will the next month bring? Hopefully lots more sand!
