At risk

Santo Amaro Beach
This stormy winter has been a great threat to buildings on the seashore.

Your beach and ocean photos are quite a contrast to my blog photo today! Trade you!

That is one of the risks of being so near the beautiful beaches everywhere. But who could resist such a lovely place.

I'd always live a few blocks away from the shore... The sea knocking on my door would give me the creeps!
God bless you!

I wish them luck.

We have the same problem, of course, but what amazes me is "they" keep building as close as possible to certain danger!

Love that first photo!

And I knew you'd know what kind of duck that was at the Miami Zoo!

That's some sky... This place are beautiful even in winter, it's a pity they are at risk.

Maybe stormy, but at least I can see that you have some 17°C!!

I'd kill to live by such beautiful beaches. You're very good with empty shore lines.

Property out here by the Ocean has the same problem. There is a beach called Washaway Beach and it does just that and people keep building. Crazy. MB
