Silver Sands Beach, Seasonal Variation


These photos were taken in December '99, when Silver Sands was experiencing high winds and rough seas. At this time of the year, the sand usually (emphasis on usually) shifts and the Silver Sands Swimming Beach changes from a deep shorter beach to a narrower longer beach. The shifting sand can actually double the length of the beach. In the photo below, the lifeguard, Roy, is standing on a sandy beach that was not there a couple months ago. This is nature's wonderful way of keeping the Silver Sands Beach and Sea clean and ALIVE!

When it's windy, the sea produces exciting waves that are great for bodysurfing and splashing about.
