Taken at the sand bar end of Bird Key, the high dunes making a nice backdrop.
This dune is man made. The sand was dredged from the bottom of Charleston Harbor. We have a deep water port, but hurricanes change the depth every year.
The cost of adding the sand to this Key was less than other options. The state port wins, the birds win. A who knows, the sand may have started out here before the last hurricane anyway.
