Tour Guide – Amelia Island Beach 2.8.18

It’s been a very rough 6 months or so here on Amelia Island – a tropical storm passed nearby and 2 early nor’easters have wrecked havoc on our normally pristine beaches. Our tour today will show us some of the preparations underway for a large-scale beach replenishment project – moving sand from point A to B, C, D, and F.

Dredging and then the pumping of sand on to the beach is expected to start around March 1st. Lots of heavy machinery, pipes, and whatnot over the next 2-3 months. When they’re done our beach will be ready for whatever nature has in store this hurricane season.

Submitted for consideration for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Tour Guide

Early Blooming Poinsettia

Here’s a poinsettia that we’ve had in our window garden for about 2 years now and this is the earliest it has ever bloomed. We say early because it should bloom late spring to mid fall here in Florida. The variety is “Red Glitter”.

We’ve done nothing special with the plant – no hiding it away in a closet. It sits in full sunlight in a northwest facing window. What a pretty plant!
