Bark Ranger Patrol - The cost of clean up

We had a pawsome day today - first we went to the beach and we are happy to report it is starting to look more normal. The king tides have pushed all the sea grass up high on the beach - hopefully to make the base for future sand dunes. The Dweeb was pretty pleased with himself when he found a nice smelly horseshoe crab - personally I like the rotting sea grass better for stink factor :)

Then Mom said we had better head off of do some Bark Ranger Patrols and check on my other parks. First we went to MY Abbey Hanna Cowspotdog Park - sadly many of the boardwalks have been damaged and the one path through the sand dunes you could take to the beach was just swarming with surfers going to and from the surf. Now personally they don't bother me at all but Dweeb sees those surf boards and just freezes on the spot - way to scary for him. The path we take to the lake was also closed due to all the tree damage so we didn't really get to check out much of this park at all.

Next we headed to MY Dutton Island Cowspotdog Preserve - we didn't even get past the gate here as the road crosses a causeway and it had been severely damaged and is unpassable - sigh.

Mom said we would give one more park a try and we headed off to MY Fort Caroline Cowspotdog at the Timucuan Preserve. The Fort itself seemed to have survived just fine but there was a lot of tree damage and there was only one trail was open.  This is also where the Spanish Cowspotdog Pond is and that too was completely closed due to storm damage.  So all in all....... MY parks have not feared very well but thankfully my trusty staff are hard at work and I am sure MY parks will be back to normal in no time.
