SQUARES – Torn Up

Little Talbot Island Beach erosion.  The dunes are pretty much non-existent.

We headed to the beach yesterday afternoon for a much needed break out of the house. Since the last visit to Little Talbot Island State Park in November, the beach has gotten torn up while it continues to erode. There is a beach restoration plan in the works and hopefully within the next few years, it will begin to get healthy again.

Little Talbot Island Beach erosion.  The dunes are pretty much non-existent.  So many trees have been destroyed as the water creeps closer to the restroom area.

The beach wasn’t the only thing that was torn up. I was torn up after losing my Tampa Bay Buccaneers Beanie Hat that I’ve had for almost 20 years. I dropped it somewhere along the 1 1/2 mile trek. The park closes at 5pm and I realized it when we got to the car at 4:57pm. The park ranger was nice enough to let us go look for it. We were gone 45 minutes and did not find it. I was in tears on the way home, not just because of the hat but I got some “not so good” news from two family members yesterday (two separate health related issues) and I was already upset.

So happy to be back for squares in 2021!

      Thanks V.J.! Cried on Tuesday from that and then cried happy tears all day yesterday during the inauguration. Thankful that Trump is out of the White House and hopeful that our country begins to heal! Super excited for the future! 🙂

    They do say that bad things happen in threes. 😳So sorry about your bad news and also losing your beloved hat. I can relate to that. I’d list snd found my favourite hat a few times and finally after many years of service, it started to disintegrate beyond repair. I had to say a tearful “Farewell” as I threw it in the trash. 😱😨
