Prom Walk 9th November

When I walked Maggie up to the prom the other day, I tried to take a picture on my phone of the excavation work being carried out but it said I had insufficient memory. Having cleared my phone of all the recorded calls and unwanted pictures, my test shots on my new phone were small, so I took the Nikon with us today.
What I thought were steps are actually tiered footings for the sea/flood defences which have now been exposed for testing. This seems to be being carried out along the coast here.
Our beach has disappeared. It should look like this:

First photos taken when we arrived here in Sept 2017
Beach defences work carried out March 2018.

Now we have what looks like the underground running adjacent to the prom, and sand dunes that stand at least twenty feet high.
The sea is there somewhere, but the view is totally different to what it was just a fortnight ago.

There is sand on both sides of the prom wall
though you can access the beach to walk along the shore, but I have no idea what it would look like when the tide’s in!

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.

    It’s all very interesting, are they going to beef up the sea defences? 💜

    • We heard they were checking the foundations as cracks has appeared in the wall along the prom. The repairs last year are also starting to crack. Apparently they have to keep the sand from banking up against the wall else the sea would just go over the top. We are a considerable distance from the actual water, but if the defences were breached, we could have some problems.

  3. That sand is important. It has to cover the tiers.
    Without it the flood tides will simply undermine (undercut) the defenses.

    Winter storms are coming to the East Coast, so I hope they don’t delay.
