Strong westerlies have been blowing for the last few days, moving sand from one end of the beach to the other. The roots and grass clumps left by the last big tides are trapping some of it. The rest is building up at the east end of the bay.
If the tractor and trailer I saw a few weeks ago keeps removing that sand will it be gone from the system? Or is it constantly being created by the sea?
Last night I had to step up to the rock I usually sit on to watch the birds sheltering at the west end. At least a foot’s depth of sand has been eroded at the dune edge there, down to bare rocks.
