Papa’s World – Cherry Grove – nature walk!

The sign to the entrance of the nature preserve

After a attempt to walk the beach –

the wind was too strong and we opted to try the more

protected walk on the marsh!

The beginning of the trail

Once we got in among the brush and trees

we were somewhat protected from the wind

and the Sun was warm!

Walkway above the marsh and tidal pathways

We could observe the water fowl – the fish and crabs!

The crabs were burying themselves in the bottom mud!

They seemed to know we were there as they quickly buried themselves!

The walk in was on a walkway and then a path through the sand!

We were protected from the blowing wind by the shrubs and trees!
How the tide influences the marsh!

I was ever watchful for snakes and if there were gators?

But – I never saw either one!

There were many signs along the way with information on the area!

Along the way were several covered picnic areas!

Thinking that when family visits –

this would be a good day outing –

first walking the undeveloped beach

and then into the nature reserve and picnic!

Sherry approaching one of the covered picnic areas!

I think this would be a awesome place for a family pcnic!

View of the marsh and channel along with some waterfront houses!

If we had not walked the beach – you would not known –

just how windy it was!

We could see waterfront houses across the channel and marsh!

It was a very nice walk – and we know that there is another nature walk

that we will someday explore!

Papa’s World – Storms – causing the ever changing beach!

Good morning – before we walk the beach!

We have not had a really bad storm since we have been here!

It has rained hard once – the wind was somewhat strong once!

But – there have been storms way out on the Atlantic Ocean –

that have had a impact on the beaches!

You can see the effect of a storm out to Sea!

I have noticed the erosion of the beach –

the gentle slope is now much less

and it seems that the flat part of the beach

now extends further out!

Just the other side of this dune is almost gone – another big storm will most likely wash this away!
This pier looks new but is missing a section at the far end. I do not know when this happened.
Looking back toward the shoreline
Looking out toward the ocean
And along the side toward the missing section

The beach has changed since we first walked on it!

There are large tidal pools now when the tide goes out

that were not there before!

Maybe when we first walked – that was not the normal?

Where did this come from?
Walking the flat beach now – more flat than before!

Storms out to sea – sending the huge waves pounding the shore!

At night and in the predawn

we can hear the surf –

One of the many storm drains from main street – we have seen them dig out with a back hole!
Tidal pools now where before there were none!
Sherry walking the tidal pools.
