Coast Guard Beach - The "After" Photos

Bev & I went down to Coast Guard Beach yesterday at about 1:30, about 2 hours after high tide. The recent storms have wreaked havoc on the beach and the high banks, unearthing some large hunks of what are probably ancient peat bogs and leaving the pristine beach littered with what looks like volcanic rocks. The once gradual path to the beach now includes a 10 foot drop off across some big areas of this peat material. I wonder whether we'll need a set of stairs this year.

The good news is that the beach has a way of repairing itself, but for now our once pristine beach is a mess. The top photo is from the top of the new bank. The bottom photo is from the beach level. Hmmm.
