Erosion

This fence used to stand tall. Now it is nearly buried by the motion of sand around it, caused by hurricanes. Sand moves from the front of the island to the back. This is the natural order, and making fences--and cottages--only prolongs the process.

Interesting story! So it is sort of a sandspit?
Larry Bliss: Kind of. It's more like a long, thin island that parallels the mainland.

That must be annoying having it move from one end to the other the whole time. It does make for very pretty pictures though smile
Larry Bliss: Well, the movement is pretty slow.It is sped along from time to time by storms.
More minimalism - love it!
Larry Bliss: Tnx. LB
I'm always amazed to see how fast the sand can win on everything !
Larry Bliss: No matter what the engineers try--and it's been a lot--the sand keeps moving.
