We saw thousands and thousands of migrating dragonflies heading south. It was unbelievable and amazing! They were spread so thin that no one else seemed to even notice them but they went on for miles. We were out there for two hours and they never ended. Gorgeous day on the...read more

Late winter storms appear to have eroded a significant portion of many bluffs. Occasionally people are seen climbing the bluffs but this appears to definitely be weather made more than man made. Several houses are quickly nearing the edge of the eroded bluffs. This mile of the beach beach took...read more
