A quiet day on the beach, a few folks and lots of dogs. The most noteworthy thing on the walk was the erosion of sand and dunes resulting from the storm last week. I have walked the beach many times in recent weeks, the level of dune cut out in most of the photos was a result of the King tide last week coupled with the storm.
