We're down here since Saturday, and we're happy to report the beach is gorgeous. When it hasn't rained, the sunsets are glorious as usual, and there are many people enjoying the beach even at night (kids with flashlites running after ghost crabs--a wonderful sight.) Beach accesses are spotty in Seagrove--we're fortunate that our complex has a completed beach access, but others next door do not yet have one. There is startling beach erosiion since last year--it looks like a huge hand came down the beach gouging out the dunes, leaving a huge wound. The pix I saw do not do it justice. Some property owners are really going to have a hard time--and I know there are no easy answers. A question--why hasn't Seaside rebuilt anything yet? I must admit to being surprised to see a number of condo complexes with functional accesses, and even some private owners have rebuilt, and yet Seaside has none? Another question--what is the story on the big fanciful pink house in Seagrove? It has substantial damage to its porches, and it looks like half or more of the foundation was eroded. Rumor on the beach is that it "has to be torn down." Its in an area of substantial beach erosion with a number of houses/complexes built very close to the water. But all in all--it is still a beautiful, magical place.
