We had read about a house sitting right on top of the dunes in Wellfleet on Cape Cod that is so close to the edge that it is in danger of being swalowed up in a big storm. So we went to investigate.
This house is really close to the edge as you can see in the photograph. It has been in the family for 60 years and was 150 feet farther away from the ocean at that time. We calculated that the ocean has eroded about 2-3 feet of the sand dunes each year since then. Unbelievable what Mother Nature can do.
They are moving the house 15 feet back. Sure hope they can get another few years out of that gorgeous location!
