Beach Erosion

0bx11.0048-001

Beach erosion is a fact of life on the Outer Banks.   Nor’easters and Hurricanes take their toll.   This is a shot of the barrier dune line  at Southern Shores, North Carolina the day after Hurricane Irene pounded the coast in late August of 2011.   What the storms take away, they also put back.  Miles down the coast, inlets are routinely  filled in and new ones created.    Despite man’s best efforts to rebuild beaches, in the end Mother Nature always wins.  Click on the photograph for a larger view.   Thanks for the look.  Have a great evening and a great weekend.
