As most of you have witnessed, the affects from the beach nourishment continue to evolve. This past season we have seen a major increase in the size of the dune, which while a good thing, has presented some problems for accessing the beach. In fact, we had to stop mid-stream the spring project of rebuilding the south beach access to accommodate the build-up over just a few months. Unfortunately, this build-up also created a problem for the northernmost beach access. The large build-up of sand near the steps made it difficult for people, especially those with bad knees, hips and ankles, to trudge through the soft sand. After much consideration and after taking into account that the sand is continuing to shift, we elected to place beach mats at the access, which should enable people to maneuver the soft sand better, and can be rolled up in the off-season for storage. Thanks for your patience! As always, we want feedback so please let us know what you think!
