The dunes in Avon are so beautiful and full of life when it’s warm. Not only do they protect the ocean side of the village from flooding, but they offer a cosy place for birds to nest. They are a rugged pretty when the grasses die off.
The dunes close to our house are double dunes. The first set is quite high and are crossed using steps so as to not destroy them. The second set is only about half as high. There are man-made paths to get over those.
The dunes are just one part of what makes Avon so special, especially for us nature lovers.
