We have always like to visit Charlies Pasture nature preserve. The last time we were here the Hurricane damage prevented us from entering. There are still no cars allowed but we took a walk past the gate to see how the park fared in the hurricane.
Here is the locked main gate.
You can see the hurricane-damaged sea wall. Those are mothballed drilling rigs in the background
A view of the seawall and the road. Quite a lot of damage.
Another view to give you some perspective.
While we were walking a family of dolphins came up to the seawall. This is the male. It was quite exciting to see them so close to the shore.
I asked how he was doing and he didn’t answer.
He’s starting his dive.
There are a mother and baby in the background as well as the male who is in the foreground
This is the mother and baby. The baby is a half a stroke ahead of the mother.
To give you an idea of the storm power this sea wall used to run all the way across that body of water
A shot showing the breach.
One last shot of papa. Notice the pelican stays pretty close. The dolphin stirs up the fish population, and the pelican is standing by to catch a hapless fish fleeing.
