Reclaimed

A little while ago I did a post on the beach and our discovery of stone steps where we believed it had just been sand.
It’s amazing to realise that in less than a month, sand has built up again.
This is my March picture, and the sand is now below the line shown here
From the prom, this is what it looked like at high tide on the 19th March, 2 days before.

Take away the wet stuff and replace it with sand, and that’s what it looked like yesterday.
Makes you feel just a tad insignificant doesn’t it.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It’s incredible! We cannot underestimate mother nature. It does make me wonder why they ever bothered to put stairs there if they always end up getting buried by sand.

    • It will be interesting to see what happens in the height of the summer when we have warmer days. When we lived in Poole, several beaches had severe sand shifts due to the tides which affected the fishing trade and oyster beds.

        Wow! Nature and commerce at odds with each other.

      • It was an interesting scenario. The locals and fishermen told the ‘experts’ that plans to put groynes in certain places would have dire consequences, but they didn’t listen. Now sand has to be transported by road from elsewhere to those beaches to replace what has been ‘moved up’ but unable to return naturally.

        Nobody ever listens to the very people who KNOW. Drives me crazy.
