Several neighbors enjoyed the beautiful weather this last weekend in January, walked the beach, and marveled at the first of three completed breakwaters. What is really super news is that this breakwater was completed in time to withstand the nor’easter “Jonas”, with over 50 knots of wind and tremendous wave action. When the storm calmed, the sand behind the breakwater had accumulated more than ten feet on the north side.
All neighbors are welcome to join the fund raising efforts to complete all three breakwaters this season. Please join us in this community event. We can already appreciate the beginning of this engineered solution to protect the beach. One only needs to look south to see the deterioration of the beach going toward the lighthouse.
