This awesome cedar tree was found in the middle of a children’s playground picnic area growing in sand beach. It was a June Sunday, the sky almost cloudless. This tree was well over 100, maybe over 200, years old, as cedars can be stunted by the harsh conditions along the coast. This tree was working hard this sunny vacation day surrounded by dozens of children, picnickers and a parade of sun-seeking tourists. Just about every form or human relationship was present.
