Driving to the coast for a few days gives us a nice reprieve from the heat. We are fortunate that it only takes us a little over two hours so we can do it often!
On one day it was sunny and on the next it was very overcast. You will be able to tell... Join me on the walk.
The sand dune peaks over the shrubs.
You can see the fog sitting in the distance off the coast. Some lavender blooms in the foreground.
Part of the area is blocked off to enable the plants to restore themselves and to protect the plover that nests in the area.
I love the egrets that frequent the area.
I had never seen the egrets feeding along the shoreline before. On this day, they were really busy.
Aren't they beautiful?
I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. If you have a chance to visit her you can see all of the great summer outdoor adventures being shared!
