Shade x 4

I was only able to stand a couple hours on the beach in yesterday’s ridiculously hot temps, but was glad to see the plover chicks had managed to find some respite from the sun.

: )

Anyone know how much heat is radiated off of beach sand in full sun when air temps are 100+ degrees?

  1. Love this photo, Laura. Interesting question about the radiant heat from the sand. I remember walking those hot beaches and having to run and hop to keep from burning my feet.
