This is a shot from a few weeks ago of Haven Beach in the morning.
I hardly ever go to Haven any more because I
What a shock to see how much of Haven has eroded away - even with the county's efforts to take protective measures to preserve it (note the rocks just off the shore above). One of the big nor'easters last year certainly took a toll, but I think it's become even worse here lately.
I'd love to see pictures of our beaches from decades ago, and perhaps in doing my research for the book I'll come across some. But if they exist they are few and far between - so far I've not found any.
For now, though, this recent trip to Haven made me realize how important it is to document the beaches as they exist right now, because the next big hurricane or nor'easter could do some devastating damage.
Rather than end on that depressing note, I'll close by saying there should be no devastating storms this week, anyway. If you believe what the weather people are saying, we can expect 80-degree days filled with sunshine.
Enjoy the day and have a great, storm-free week.
