Back in 2009, when B was 10, we made a video explaining erosion. It must have been after some storm or perhaps she was studying it at school.
Wait. You want to see it?
OK, here it is.
The Cape has been hammered by storms this winter, so B, her friend M and I went to check out some big time erosion on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham.
Head the warnings, if you can stop laughing at the picture of the guy falling.
If you make this picture bigger, you can see a house in the distance. I am not sure how many more storms until it is teetering on the edge.
Here is some perspective on how large the dunes are now. It almost looked like a bulldozer had come in and scooped the sand away.
