It was last year when they installed the dune fences at Nauset Beach to help curb the erosion that has has been creeping up in the past few years and that took Liam’s away in 2018. (Click on blog link for comparing photo.)
You can see the difference in the two photographs in just a year. (The 2nd photograph is last year.) The planted beach grass has definitely started to grow in and will hopefully help with the beach erosion, saving the beach and parking lot for another few years.
It was a cloudy, chilly day on Nauset Beach, but beautiful just the same. Nauset Beach is one of those iconic beaches on Cape Cod that everyone remembers going to and loving the memories!
This was such a pretty view of the blue waters of Nauset Marsh at high tide leading out to Nauset Harbor and the ocean, and the windblown beach grass. I loved the dark blue color of the water contrasting with the sky. What do you think?
It was a beautiful day, so I ran up the trail to get a photo of Nauset Beach. I knew it would be spectacular. But, on the way up the path, I noticed that the handrails and the fence were only about 12″ off of the ground. Had that much sand blown in over the winter? Or maybe they trucked in sand to build up the dunes because of erosion and that had blown onto the trail?
Nauset Beach, part of the National Seashore, is one of the more popular beaches on Cape Cod. Its beaches go for miles… Nauset Spit to the north and to Chatham to the south.
I loved this photograph as you walk up the first path to the beach. So pretty, don’t you think?
You can see that they have been working hard over the winter to install this new fence to help with beach erosion.
I love walking to the end of Coast Guard Beach. It’s a beautiful walk where you might see some nesting birds. It was low tide when we walked there last and the ripples in the sand made for such an interesting photograph.
You have Coast Guard Beach on the left and Nauset Beach way in the distance on the right. You can see the little specks of people across Nauset Spit walking on Nauset Beach.
(I took this photograph last week before Coast Guard Beach was closed because of heavy erosion.)
