Reclaiming the Beach 27 November 2000
Come November the Atlantic reclaims her summer gift: the long, deep, gentle shoreline of the Great Back Beach nearly 30 miles of towering dunes and sun-baked sand.
Ocean breakers, swelled by waves of nor’east storms, chisel the shoreline, scooping mountains of beach to rebuild once-lethal winter sandbars which formed the graveyard of the Atlantic for countless sailing ships of yore, . . .
. . . sculpting elegant curves and billiard-sharp angles to transform the sleek slopes of summer into Dali texture and Picaso form, . . .
. . . and carving a new rugged face on Ole Cape Cod.
