I noted 2-1/2 years ago the improved beach access, even though the side rails had mostly gone away on the boardwalk nearest us.
I noted a year ago how the dunes had risen to their natural level, depositing a half-meter of sand on top of this boardwalk.
And, 8 months ago, how flooding had overwhelmed the same boardwalk.
Today, I see that — through accident or vandalism — the rail has started to go away. We’re not in heating season, so it may not disappear (as firewood) as quickly as in March 2012.
But probably no reason to think it will be repaired.
