"For want of grass..."


"For want of grass, the sand is lost; for want of sand, the dune is lost


"for want of the dune , the island is lost."

-- Sign on West Ship Island, Gulf Islands National Seashore

Please, use walkovers when possible. Don't walk over dunes and be careful not to damage sea oats.

I'm always amazed by the giant dunes along parts of the Great Lakes and up in the outermost part of Cape Cod.
