It looks like all the tourists have gone. If you check out my Thursday post, you saw the early morning saving of space. I did not have pictures of the crowds since quite frankly I stayed away from the beach all day. So yesterday’s walk produced what I would call the aftermath.
First, let’s look at the beach.
As you can see it is pretty clear of people and things. There is a slight haze, and the weather person attributes it to Sahara dust.
This next photo I have titled “Burial Ground.” Here is where the frames of dead pop-ups eventually wind up.
“The Sentinel,” is the title of his photo. This is a photo of an abandoned pop-up still standing guard waiting for its family to return.
I know. Sad right?
The next shot is of the ARK (Animal Rehabilitation Keep) search vehicle.
These volunteers search the beach every day for turtle eggs. Turtles no longer can simply lay their eggs and hope for the babies to survive. With so much human traffic the eggs can be broken very easily. The volunteers look for signs that a mother turtle has laid eggs and then they will dig up the nest and put the eggs safely away to hatch. The hatchlings are then released when they are old enough.
This last photo speaks volumes about former owners.
That black thing on the right is a tire. That’s what I do when I no longer need a tire. I go out on the beach and drop it off. Don’t you?????
