Trunk Bay Sand

The moderate north swell that we’ve been experiencing the last few days has produced small breaking waves on the Trunk Bay shoreline. This in turn has brought some new sand from the reef to be deposited on shore.

Walking down the beach, the sand was smooth and fine and felt soft on my feet.
