Report Details

It was a busy day with more people on the beach during my walk than usual. It was on the cold side and yet a few people in the water.  My main concern was riprap installation where no structures have been built. The dunes in the two locations had no apparent erosion, so I'm not sure what was being stabilized.

Conditions

Cloud Cover: Partly Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light.

Human Activities

Number of people: 42. Number of dogs: 7. Walking or running: 33. Playing in surf: 3. Sitting: 5. Photography: 1. Other Activities: Three people using metal detectors.

Driftline Content

Small rocks, Wood pieces. very little of any material on the beach

Man-made Modifications

New riprap or shoreline protection structures. At the north end of mile 237, there were three locations with new riprap, two of which were in locations where there were no structures, but appeared there may be future construction. The northern most riprap was in the process of installation (rocks there, but not all in place). Not much if any intrusion onto the beach - one the least invasive riprap jobs I have seen.

The most important factor for me personally with the changes I've observed in this section of my mile is how impactful the shoreline armoring has been on the beach to the south.

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.
