Regrowth along the airport

A few weeks ago, Ocean Ridge Airport was host to the South Coast Fire Department for a fire drill. The fields along the north end of the runway were burned up to the edge of the forest. If you go up there now, you’ll see the brilliant green grasses have started to grow back. It really is lovely.

You can even see it from above, as Julie got to do when a friend took her up in a 1946 Luscombe 8A.

Seeing Ocean Ridge from the air is quite a treat to us land-dwellers!
