Today is Earth Day. Let’s look at mother nature at work. Late March. Early April.
Sunday: torrential rains, high tides and wild waves.
Monday: torrential rains, high tides and wild waves.
What happened at the beach?
In the morning, high tides and pounding waves hit the foreshore. Note the location of the large palm trunk in the front and the heavily slanted, small palm trunk behind.
Tuesday morning. Destruction revealed. Beach sand washed away.
How much beach sand has gone? How long will the teetering palm trees last?
Is this ‘natural’ erosion? Has it been helped and/or hastened by man?
More rain and high tides in April.
What will tomorrow bring?
Hooray! A happy ending. The sands come back…
