In the last couple of months a breach of the dune line just west of Coast Guard is working its way to Ocean Parkway. As you can see, the ocean has eaten thru a major portion of the dune structure for about 50 feet of dunes.
Save The Beaches has sponsored our very first Cedar Beach Co-Ed Volleyball Team.
Join us for their FIRST game of the 2018 season! May 23rd~ Wednesday~ 6 pm ~Cedar Beach……
Walked Gilgo Beach from the center Path to Coast Guard Station late morning during the mid tide.The slide below shows a picture of the West and then the walk East to Coast Guard Station.
Most of the dunes have eroded to within a foot or so of their peaks.
The majority of storm fencing and posts are gone or damaged.
The high water line comes within a couple of feet of the dunes in many locations.
There is not a lot of beach!
100 feet West of Coast Guard Station, erosion has gone past the peak height of the dune, it is eating up the dune to Ocean Parkway.
Look at the high tide marking in the sand, the ocean is reaching the dune line regularly on high tides.
The South Shore Babylon Barrier Beaches need sand, call your Congressman today.
Walked the beach on the incoming am tide which was 8:10am.
Ocean calm with light off shore wind and a little 2′ wave.
Looks like a little more sand came back, but can still see the high tide erosion on many of the dunes between the public Gilgo Beach and Hemlock Cove, about a 3 mile stretch.
Lost a couple more posts on the west side dune of Coast Guard.
The South Shore Barrier Beaches at Gilgo need sand, call your Congressman today.
Walked today at low tide, looks like some sand came back, but not enough to add to the high tide beach, but look better than the 6/17 low tide pictures. Better later than never, think this is the first plus sign of sand to occur this year.
Even with the positive development, more erosion to the base and depth of the sand dunes has occurred since the last report on 6/19.
Looks can be deceiving, wishing it was beach back, look at the high water debris line, still getting to the dune base in many locations.
