With all of the winter erosion on the Cape Cod coast, it is best not to walk on the dunes. Hopefully the beach grass will grow back and help mitigate the erosion.
There is quite a bit of sand at Nauset Beach that has washed in or gotten blown in over the winter. You can see how the middle hand railing in the first photograph, looking out toward the water, is pretty much covered by sand. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
In the 2nd photograph which is looking back toward the parking lot from the water, you can see how deep the sand is. Wow!
The sign is up for the new entrance to Nauset Beach. This entrance will have a new 218-car parking lot which will be linked to the old parking lot. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
You can see the new shack to collect fees at the entrance with a larger building behind it that will be used for offices.
The “iconic” old entrance will be the new exit to better the flow of traffic. We hadn’t been down there for a few weeks, so were quite surprised at all of the work that has been completed! Wow!
Yesterday morning when we woke up, we could hear the roaring of the ocean waves from our home on the bay side in Eastham. I had never heard it so loud! (Click on blog link for other photos.)
I just had to take a drive down to Nauset Beach to see what was making all of that noise. What a treat!
Nauset Beach was cranking! The waves were big and plentiful and just gorgeous to watch.
