The Thursday Ramblers were out exploring at Manchester State Beach several weeks ago. They walked along the long-closed Alder Creek Road. It has gotten very overgrown, but there were lots of native wildflowers this summer. Mary Sue Ittner sent in these photos.
We have had a lot of fog on the coast this past week. It does clear in the afternoon, but soon returns. This is why some people call August by the name "Fogust."
