This is a common beach scene on the Island. This was taken as the tide was going out. The palm trees and building in the background is the beach club complete with two swimming pools, a wedding venue, beach chairs overlooking the ocean, and the Pelican’s Nest restaurant and bar.

Today’s photo shows a larger home project. Specifically installing a metal roof. A little research finds the following explanation:
“Unlike many other areas of the United States, coastal areas require a different type of roofing to deal with the weather of the area. Though beautiful for much of the year, coastal weather can some times be very harsh. The roofing materials, that are used on a house in a coastal area, such as West Palm Beach roofing, must be able to withstand high speed wind, salt, storms, and many other elements. The material needs to be durable enough to not fall apart under these environmental pressures.”

They are made of a renewable resource that is a waste product from the food industry.
This photo shows pelicans skimming the waves off shore on Seabrook Island. A little googling finds articles that indicate “Skimming permits the birds to take advantage of an aerodynamic phenomenon known as ground effect”.
