Giveaway and Earth Day Recap

Firstly, don't forget to leave a comment on last Friday's post. My giveaway ends at 5pm EST today.

With yesterday being Earth Day, I decided to take a trip to my local beach. You may remember me posting pictures about it here.

Well, shortly after this gorgeous photo was taken . . . we experienced one of the worst storms in NY. I had heard the beach erosion was enormous so I didn't know what to expect on Earth Day. I had been delaying going to the beach again because I was too scared to find out.

And then I saw this as I was nearing the beach.Truck after truck carrying sand to my beach. I was so saddened.The seagulls look as if they are lost with all of this commotion going on.

Now, I am not gonna lie to ya. Some of the truck drivers were very handsome. But please, no more Nor'easters. I love my beach and I want it to always be here.

my beaches too are hurted by erosion facts ( due to storms ) : they recover health slowly with some treatment. I'm sad to see coast being destroyed;but i guess i'm lucky it was by mother nature not by human being;

We are very lucky in Scotland, in that coastal erosion is quite slow here, as we are on the middle of out big land plate and a (fairly) mellow weather system.

Your poor beach! I hope they can save it from future erosion! I think that we are so lucky to live by such beautiful bodies of water... you the ocean and me the Great Lakes! Have a great weekend, Carmie!

I hope that your beach is back to normal soon. ALthough you couldn't enjoy it, your photo's of the shore are very pretty.
Have a great weekend.

Hopefully the beach will be back to normal before the summer "beach" weather is here.
