Looks like the Naples beach is getting some nourishment in the form of additional sea oat plantings. Nature's give-and-take with the tides and storms can rearrange the sand pretty quickly, but dune vegetation seems to help stabilize it in a 'natural' way. These sea oats are treasured - protected by a barrier which prevents trample from the human foot. This is a nice compromise between the need of humans to enjoy the shoreline and the necessary requisite of honoring our earth. I wonder if we can do as well with the conflicts that seemingly abound... 2nd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
