Becky and I visited Wash-Away Beach while we were at the Ocean in October. A nice couple we met told us the best way to get down there to walk on it. Here are the photos. As always, clicking on the pictures will enlarge them.
These two photos showing a beautiful expansive beach area are brought to you by Erosion and TheTideIsOut.
Near this spot I heard someone say, "Where is the ladder?" I looked up to see a guy and his dog looking for the ladder they had used the day before to climb down to the beach. About fifteen feet of ground had fallen, and taken the ladder with it. This happened between his walk the day before and these pictures taken on Friday, October 8.
Trees litter the beaches here as they fall with the ground.
I walked a long way to get this picture of this house. At this point it still had about 35 feet of yard in front of it. We got home on Sunday night and on Monday this house was on the news. Then finally it fell to the beach on October 24th.
