Erosion in Wellfleet?

Yesterday we finally made it to the beach! First we checked out Newcomb Hollow, but the erosion did not seem too bad although I had overhead people in town discussing it. Then we stopped at Cahoon, where the dune was definitely steeper, above. On we went to LeCount Hollow. There the beach had descended, so that it was about 10 feet below its previous level. We walked down to Marconi and at last saw evidence of real beach erosion from last week’s storm. (Note to regular blog readers: there will be no post tomorrow as I will be away from my computer.)
