Beach walker’s report

I was able to check on several beaches along the 7 mile island yesterday.

There was some moderate beach erosion in the south end of Stone Harbor- noticeably at the vehicle drive on ramps on 111th and 123rd Streets (heads up for those with beach vehicle permits!)

At the Catamaran beach south of 123rd Street and toward the point, these was sand loss up to the snow fencing (the wood/wire fencing installed along the beach side of the dunes).  This area is prone to dramatic shifts of sand due to the proximity of the inlet.

In Avalon, I walked at low tide from 9th to 32nd Street, and posted pictures and videos on Twitter.  Other than accumulated marsh grass, the beaches looked good.  The water reached the paths at high tide, but left the sand intact.

The waves in Townsends Inlet were still fierce in the afternoon! Always fun to see the power of Mother Nature.
