The Power of the Ocean

dune.jpg  The wind direction has thankfully switched, giving our battered beaches time to recover from last week’s storm.  The tide reached the dune line in most areas, and the mightly Atlantic Ocean took down some snow fencing (not sure why we call it snow fencing when it’s in the dunes and rarely touched by snow?).  I think the missing sand is gathering at the point- that area extends farther south each year. 

We used to joke that the Avalon and Stone Harbor sand washed down to Wildwood- but their beaches have dramatically changed in recent years.  There are tide pools adjacent to the boardwalk, water under some of the amusement piers, and smaller beaches overall.
