All Mile 237 Reports
The most heartbreaking part of my mile report today is that I couldn't even walk my entire mile due to shifting sand and the subsequent tide (even though I did this at low tide,) preventing a safe northward walk. I have been walking on this stretch of beach since the early seventies and never-- even five or ten years ago, would you not had adequate distance to walk the beach from the surf to the foredune. I provided on pic looking north on my mile from the top of a revetment that was installed a few years ago, that's the only way I could get a glimpse of it safely.
I learned that two shore structures (stairs built on top of rip-rap) were heavily damaged during a recent storm/tide condition earlier this month.
Beautiful morning on the beach with calm winds and plenty of sun.
