Red cedars standing strong deep in the dunes.

Cedars are one of the few trees/shrubs that thrive directly on the beach.

And one of the things that lets them thrive is their resilience.

They bend and shape themselves to the flow of the wind, each becoming a unique sculpture.

A standing sentinel on the beach.
