Warning: you may want to be seated when reading this post: Major storms this weekend once again wrecked havoc on our beach😢.

Today’s walk to the south beach shows that the walkway/bridge (put in place this summer) has been overtaken by water.

The good news: the “drop off ledge” by the lake is gone...as is most of the dune grass.

Time will tell what next summer’s beach will be!
