Gale warning today! Parts of Fishtown were under water, but it had subsided by the time I got there. Go to http://fishtownmi.org if you want to help with the effort to repair the damage from this year’s record water level. From there, I walked up North Beach to the “no-go” zone. Above is a very natural approach to saving what private beach is left. North of this point, the high water mark moves slowly right up to the hillside, the waves slowly eating away at what’s left.

The magnetite and hemitite or “black sand” created some interesting patterns as it was being washed out with the waves.

This sick seagull was having a difficult time getting up the cliff out of the waves, so I moved her up into the dune grass.

The driftwood shelter that washed away is back! Taking on a more replitian form this time.
