Natural Changes

Evidence of wave overtopping. I have been frequenting Harris Beach for 10 months since moving to the area and I have observed a dramatic change in the run-off from about which has developed into a deep channel that now runs parallel to the shoreline and has created a large pond near the informal pathway near the north edge of the parking lot. That landscape has changed a lot.

Actions & Comments

No action. Just mentioning it now.
