A Thousand Words…

Yesterday, at the Blackie Spit Park in Crescent Beach, I saw something that I’ve never seen before in my life.  Fortunately, I had my cell phone camera with me to take a video of the scene.  There’s truth to the saying, ” A picture is worth a thousand words!”.

When I approached the shore, I couldn’t figure out how the shoreline had changed.  I walked here many times, so I knew that something was different.   But this area of Blackie Spit is an environmentally sensitive, and dogs are not permitted.

Initially, I suspected that the ‘grey’ matter that was covering the shore might have been some species of a bird because I could see a slight movement every few seconds.  But I wasn’t sure.  So I approached the area very slowly and quietly began filming the scene.

When you begin viewing the video, look at the grey area of the beach – closest to the water’s edge.   Be sure to watch the clip to the end – you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
