I was in town this morning, and had the chance to visit the beach. Since I was last there, the town has pushed all the rocks and pebbles that the storm had pushed across the entry onto the main dock back onto the beach.
The beach is still very changed in this area, from before the storm. Much of the organic debris has been washed away, but the big rocks next to the dock itself are completely covered with sand. There is no sign that they are there at all!
With every tide, a new sand ridge is created in the area, though.
Where I took this photo, the ridge was probably about 8 inches high.
New layers of pebbles are slowly being washed back onto the water’s edge. So many colours and textures! I just love it. 🙂
One of the bonuses of dropping my daughter off at work for an early shift is taking a quick stop at the beach before heading home.
It was very windy off the lake today, making for some awesome waves!
As I parked, I could see a guy struggling through the waves near the water line, carrying an oar and dragging what I at first thought was a kayak.
Passing him on the sand a few minutes later, as he fought the wind to put it on its wheeled carrier, I saw it looked more like a surf board. So I’m guessing it was a paddle board.
The combination of the lake’s size and how shallow it is, makes it one of the more dangerous lakes to sail on in rough weather. Today wasn’t too bad for boats, but I would not have dared go out there on a paddle board in these conditions!
