A Breech in the Dunes

IMG_0042

Today Hubby and I drove down to one of the beaches in our Town. This particular beach forms a large sandbar, which is a barrier between the ocean and marsh and the center of Town. During the past several storms the beach has been hit during astronomical high tides. As a result there have been numerous breeches of the dunes. There is great concern now that the ocean will soon break through one of these new breeches. As a result at a high tide the main drag and stores could flood. Decisions have to be made if they are going to replenish the dunes or let nature take its course. We shall see what is decided as each winter this same battle seems to be fought and we seem to be on the losing side!
