Admiral's Beach Retreat - Ocean appears to be on fire!

These photos were taken the weekend of March 2nd, 2012 with a storm on the horizon at sunset. The surf was rough and churned up an unusual amount of foam which came together with the dark ocean, storm clouds and bright red setting sun to create this magnificent effect.

Fossils on the beach - A short 5 minute walk up the beach!

This was a phenomenal find for us and the kids. It is only about a 5 minute walk down the beach from Admiral's Beach Retreat.
