To Beach, or Not to Beach?

What does one do when a beach is inaccessible? We were confronted with this issue on Monday. Erosion from weekend storms had closed LeCount Hollow. We got back in the car and drove down to Cahoon, skipping White Crest where we suspected a similar amount of erosion. At Cahoon, access had been seriously improved in June. The beach was open, but recent erosion had destroyed the path at the bottom of the dune, which made descent treacherous. So, we drove down to Newcomb Hollow. At Newcomb, we were able to access the beach without problem, and, I might add, enjoy the sunset on the backside for once!
