Sahara Desert plume passes by Amelia Island

Editor’s Note:  An early morning email brought this photo of today’s sunrise over Amelia Island.  It is hard to imagine that a dust plume originating in the Sahara Desert is lingering in the skies over Amelia Island.   According to Margaret, the plume brings with it a slight odor as well.  If you look closely, you will see in the distance, a paddleboarder who happens to be  Margaret Milton’s husband. Thank you Margaret for sending this photo our way.
