Driftline Content

Seaweeds and seagrass.

New Development

Continued erosion of the soft bluffs all along this mile. There are attempts to create steps or paths down to the beach from above, these done generally last. We often see chunks of lumber and concrete from these engineering failures. Also pipes for drainage seem to be revealed as erosion exposes them. At one point midway an area which had dozens of shore pines bulldozed to the bluff edge last year was showing no signs of new activity. I believe that had been reported to the authorities.

Natural Changes

Major cracks appearing in bluffs, Newly exposed roots/trees falling, Erosion of vegetated foredune.
