Clearing

Obx4.00072-edited

A rather dramatic scene playing out on the beach at Southern Shores  as storm clouds push east over the ocean.  The view here is to the southwest showing the  enormous barrier dunes.  The dunes are so tall in many spots that only the rooftops of two story ocean front  houses are  visible from the tide line.   Further south on the Outer Banks,  the line of barrier dunes has been depleted leaving homes and highway 12 vulnerable to ocean over-wash.   On this visit, I noticed  many new sand fences had been erected along the dune line aimed at holding the sand and vegetation in place during storms, particularly Nor’Easters which do more damage to the coast than Hurricanes.

Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
