its a secret, call it what you will


this is secret beach in nicaragua
its thought to have been caused by a tsunami that
brought all that sand up onto the side of that
cliff to make a strip of sand that is almost
100 yards long down the side of the cliff
people have been known to go to the top and
with a boogey board slide down to the bottom

its called the secret beach because if you manage to
get there you will definitely be by yourself
its a tough walk and steep climb to get to this slab of beach sand
on the side of the hill
but apparently its worth it if you make it to the beach

i didnt go down but have added that to my bucket list
for my next visit there

its officially called playa duma

you can call it what you want
climate change or global warning it doesnt really matter
somethings happening
the glaciers are melting
there are small islands in the pacific that are disappearing
under water
thats real you cant deny it
man made or just natural occurrence
it doesnt matter its here now

i see evidence of change on my property on the country n
see that dark maroon color above that denotes severe drought

the map where i live has that dark maroon color
and it shows around here

my grass on some of my property is dead and there is no new
stuff taking its place
ive lost a lot of trees on my property that provided shelter and
food to a lot of animals
ive lost several trees ive planted over the years since weve been
here and have lost several native shrubs also
some were those xeric drought tolerant ones

we have deep ruts and holes in our pastures from the last
two-three years of decreased rain

weve also noticed a decrease in animals around here
skunks possums rabbits foxes deer armadillos and even snakes
that makes my wife happy

heck even the road kill has decreased
enough to starve a buzzard

it shows also on my garden and landscape
theres stress on many of the plants and the soil is extremely dry

we did get 2.5 inches of rain this weekend
not a drought buster but it helps
however i dug down into the soil in the garden and it was dry
just a couple of inches even though we had all that rain

hopefully the color on the map will lighten some for us and for
those midwestern folks

yep call it what you will but it is happening

maybe the politicians could stop arguing over what its called
and whats causing it
and just accept that its happening and that dumping stuff
in the air and ground and the environment really isnt good for us
