Disappearing Sandy Point...Winter 2013 Storm Erosion

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Storms in 2012 and 2013 have been cruel to the south and east shores of Plum Island....As can be viewed on the map, there was formerly several hundred feet of beach grass between the beach and the viewing platform/boardwalk. This photo from 2008 shows that to some extent. But this photo is the state in April 2013....

In The Netherlands we're gaining land from the sea. You 'mericans are doing the opposite, Bitsy!

Hey Norrel are you Dutch siphoning off land from the other side of the ocean?

LOL! Good catch, Tery!

Well Norrel someone was bound to figure it out ;)

I just came back to check if Sandy Point had disappeared any further. But no, it's still here.
