Shifting Sand

A couple of years ago the council paid a small fortune in having the beach re-sanded by a Dutch company which was actually fascinating to watch.
You can read about it here and there are loads of photos

A few days ago, Hubby tried to walk the dog along the prom but the wind was so severe, he was sand blasted and it was just impossible.
We both went up yesterday afternoon and the beach is a far cry from the flat sands and coast line of April when this picture was taken.
Once again Nature has decided to remodel the beach and we have banks of sand along the defense wall and the prom itself.

It’s not quite as bad as two years ago before all the work was carried out
but you get the idea.
This was the work being done at our end in March 2018.

I wonder if there are any plans in the pipeline for an action replay of maintenance?

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Beach erosion is a problem everywhere!

    • The main problem here is that the sand banks up against the sea defences, thus rendering them pretty useless. The diggers may be out later in the year.


    A facial sandblasting… horrid! We used to have a family walk to St Anne’s beach every New Year’s Day. The cold went with the sandblasting, but the fish and chips in the day’s dying light were wonderful…
