Defiant against the Elements

I had nowhere special to be today so I gassed up the car and headed south to one of my all time favorite places, Hunting Island State Park.  Usually I explore the area near the lighthouse, but this time I went further south to the nature center and hiked the trail to the beach, through the maritime forest and over the lagoon on the pedestrian bridge.  It is quite startling to see how much erosion has taken place at the south end of the island. The sand has disappeared and neighboring Fripp Island has been the beneficiary.  The state park has one lone cabin still standing in the sea.  It used to be part of a group of cabins set back from the beach. It won't be there much longer.  It was a cold, windy, and gray day.  Not ideal conditions for photography, but it's always nice to be outside in the fresh air and I got more interesting exercise than my usual treadmill slog to the tune of political talking heads on the tv.
