After The Storm

Tim and I finally went for a walk on the beach today. It’s not so easy to do now. We had to drive around for a while until we finally found a beach access that was open (most are closed due to damage). We saw lots of damaged or condemned homes. We saw a few that had already begun restoration. We saw lots and lots of debris. Huge logs and boards were in the surf still. There were a lot of shells, and shark’s teeth, and foam. We saw a huge, dead horseshoe crab. 

Mostly, though, we just observed activity. Roofs being repaired. Debris being cleared. Birds looking for food. Waves crashing, the wind blowing, the tide turning.
