Winter Fun on the Beach

I know winter and fun on the beach do not seem to go together! This past week at the beach we have had more fun then we do most summers. We had what has become our annual Sowing Our Wild Oats Week of planting and celebration. These events center around rebuilding our Sand Dunes after they were destroyed during the hurricanes. This is a long slow process in nature but, people can help it along, a little.
Last winter about 6 monthes after I began working for Sunset Properties, we began to discuss how we can rebuild our sand dunes. The beach at the time was completely flat and almost entirely void of plants. The plants and dunes themselves are benificial to the wild life in area.
Last winter the staff, owners, and winter guests donated time, money, and lots of energy, raising money, cleaning the beach, and planting sea oats, and other plants. We had so much fun last year that we decided to make this a week long event this year. That includes not only sea oat planting, but beach clean up, Beach Golf, a Bar-B-Q, a Sea Oat King and Queen, and lots of fun... Look for updates on the week's activities, everything we did with our Wonderful Winter Guests.
