Below are a few more photos taken on a walk past the barricade, toward Ft. Pickens:
The road is lightly covered with sand and in the distance you can see the new Ft. Pickens/Gulf Islands National Seashore sign.
Water did not wash across the road at this point, so wind-driven sand filled in along the edges of the road where asphalt had crumbled from previous storms.
I was curious about how high the water rose from the Santa Rosa Sound side of the road.
Looks like my crab-eating Night Heron friend!
