Once upon a time in 2009, a tree stood on Aaron's Beach.
Submerged in sand, the tree was a comfortable distance from the bay.
(Well, maybe not so comfortable.)
The next three shots are from 2011. Same tree but much less sand.
Erosion has uncovered the bottom half of the tree.
The beach changes with every major storm.
In spite of those changes, the tree still stands.
The Chesapeake Bay Family is on spring break this week, and we hope to spend a few days in Richmond visiting the real world and its shopping malls and restaurants. Also, we'll see Baby Sis, who is retrieving CB Son from the Staples Mill train station this evening as Daughter and I make our way there from Mathews.
Son has many stories from his trip to NYC, one of which involves an app for the subway system that may or may not have helped him find Chinatown. He got lost on the way there or took a wrong train or missed his stop; it was unclear from the text he sent. Nevertheless, my 17-year-old found it on his own with some assistance from the app and his iPhone's Siri. He said the food was fabulous. (OK, so he may not have used that word. Fabulous is my word upon hearing his description.)
I probably won't post much for the remainder of the week but hope it's a good one for you.
