What have they done to my beach, Ma?
They have plans for new sea defences. Today, I saw how far they've got in four weeks. The pipe you see in the top photo is bringing in "shingle" from a barge and/or a boat further out at sea. The barge seems permanent, the boat comes and goes.
The "shingle" doesn't match the original. It is at least 50% sand. I suppose they know what they're doing.
If it ever stops raining I'll take more pictures.
The same stretch of beach, eight months ago.
