When completed – this huge granite rock break wall –
will allow the sand that is dredged from the channel
and pumped out and form a new beach to the left of the wall.
The first and second streets are no longer here
have eroded away.
These houses were in danger as high tide brought the ocean right up and underneath them.
You can see the very large sandbags that were placed to try and save the homes.
Water would run right up to them and underneath.
The beach will continue along the shore – and the sand will build up against the wall of granite rocks.
Each rock weighs in tons – three at a time are transported by forty-foot tractor truck and trailers.
