Ballston Beach in Truro is such beautiful beach which has changed so dramatically in the past decade. You can see on the left side of the first photograph where it broke through the dunes in 2013, but better in the 2nd photo. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
“For two days in February of 2013, a blizzard packing hurricane force winds pounded Cape Cod. One of the areas that suffered the most damage was Ballston Beach, a popular spot on Truro’s Atlantic-facing coastline. When high tide struck on the evening of February 8, the storm surge broke through the dunes, pushing water from the ocean all the way back to the Upper Pamet River Valley.” Wow! What a story!
Last winter we all watched that house (not in the photograph) on Ballston Beach teetering on the dunes in a bad winter storm, only to be moved to safer ground. Does anyone know if it was located nearby?

If a Wicked Local April 25, 2022 article, and the XHome data published Dec. 28, 2022, are accurate, the house has been moved.
