Santa Rosa After the Storm

Well, the new road has a few minor issues, but it doesn't look too bad. Other than that, there's just sand in new places... like over the same road :)

The animals all seemed to be thriving though! A heron took flight almost as soon as I arrived on the beach - it must have known I was trying to count the birds!

American Avocets hung out in the marshes...

Some visiting with avian friends.

Piping plovers visited at Big Sabine, Opal and the Navarre gate. One had quite an attitude!

And the dowitchers were everywhere. In all, it was a gorgeous day!

So glad to hear that things aren't any worse there! I was thinking about you and the turtles throughout the storm.

International Coastal Clean-Up!
