Thousands of people each year flock to the beaches just to get a glimpse of the rolling waves, massive piers and calming sand dunes. The images below were shot several years ago. They are a reminder of calmer times.
While hundreds of people walk on these rough wooden planks daily to catch what lies beyond, others are satisfied just to relax in their shadow.
These sandy dunes are just an example of the deteriation of the beaches. While the Sea Oats fight to hold back each grain, beach traffic and harsh weather has taken it toll on the environment.
Other than the tramatic sunsets, this image is a scene everyone would love to wake up to.
Our environment and lifestyle have deteriorated greately since these shots were taken. This is a reminder that we cannot afford to take even one moment for granted.
