A calm day...
The "shell beach" has been stripped of almost all the shells and coral after the storm force tides. However I *know* it will be back again - built up by successive tides and I will find "groatie buckies" among the shells again... but it may be a while.
The shore line continues to be eroded. I have a few acres behind the house which lead down to the shore but each winter chunks disappear. At one point you could easily walk around the outside of the fence on the shore side. Not any more. This year I'm hoping to get the field re-fenced and I suspect the new fence will have to be moved back a few feet to protect from erosion for a few short years anyway.
