A New Path

People are flocking to the beaches in South Carolina. It's getting to be a challenge to find parking places, but we found an out-of-the-way parking area the other night. It didn't look like other beach access points, so I even went to read the signs to verify it was legit.

Once we were satisfied, we found a path to the beach. It was a sandy path. No boardwalks or anything. Just sand.

We were making our way to the ocean, when I spotted a flag.




The more I explore beaches, the more aware I am of beach erosion. We could see walkways covered with sand by new sand dunes. Once you have a dune, you're not supposed to walk on it.


















In this picture you can see the walkway from a home that is covered with sand.











These pictures are of the walkway on the other side of the new sand dune.

I haven't lived here long enough to know if the entire dune will one day shift and the covered walkway will be usable again.



Here is a close-up picture of the flag once we got closer to it.





I hope you all have an amazing week!
