Storm Leaves Primaeval Beaches


We wandered about dazed by the erosion.

The ocean took away two beaches but dropped off two other, different ones.

Here the sand level is down 8-10'. The gods took a planer the size of Cape Ann itself and mowed the beaches down and down. Beaches just churned and boiled in a 20' water/sand/gale mix. An engineering project could take years to to the same thing the ocean did in 20 hours.

The shipwreck (an 1850's ? sailing ship named Surprise) is GONE! Gone to her final, final resting place out there. - Any details on this ship? - please sound off - don't matter no how, she's gone!

Yours truly attempted a local spot for dues paying session in God-damned coldest water we have ever experienced. Anyone else all set with the ice water? Bouys had been reading 39°. Again, dues paying, there's no avoiding it, and no satisfaction without it. But 39°?

Clean slate with out new primaeval beaches!
