Report Details

The amount of armoring activity was significant. In one section, the beach was disturbed for .30 miles, from construction sign to construction sign.  I did not feel safe walking mile 237 in the spring and early summer as the construction activity went below the high tide line. Even during lower tide times, it was definitely not safe to attempt to pass the construction activity.

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.
