Monterey Dunes: Winter conditions and a new piece of art installed

The beach has been changed by the large winter storms:

And the were some casualties:

The replanted area is doing just so-so:

And the rain has brought out the spring colors:

Sporadic attempt to eliminate ice plant

There are only about 9-12 mating pairs of snowy plovers on this stretch of beach:

They like to rest in sand divots

THB doing some beach cleanup; there is a lot of Styrofoam broken up along the coast line now

We were on dog sitting detail...not exactly hard duty!

And now for the latest piece of art: a sewer pipe!

The pallet just fit through the gate


To help stabilize the piece

Laying the tape between pieces

The MD HOA crew provides the muscle
