The last time I was at the beach was November 13th, but I went out yesterday to shoot the sunset and to see what’s happening…. My friend who lives on the lake was telling me he’s going to get flood insurance, and at the time I thought he might be exaggerating, but after I saw with my own eyes, I think he should!
It’s very difficult to understand what’s happening by looking at pictures, so attached is something that points out new structures, and how the dunes have changed.
There’s a 15’ straight drop where there used to be a gradual slope to the water. If you look at the closest seawall, and then go out about 100’, that’s where we used to play on the beach. None of the seawalls you see here were visible in the Summer of 2013, but were buried under 15-20’ of sand.
