Spring and Snow Fences
Happy Spring! Happy Passover! Happy Easter!
The weather is warming, slowly but surely, and the sun is shining brightly today. It's 50 degrees in my yard, and the hyacinths are trying to bloom, but down by the beach the wind is off the cold ocean water and brisk when it blows.
I've added a few pictures to chronicle the damage to some of the dune fences, and the restoration that a few of the neighbors have accomplished in front of their yards.
According to the town's conservation commissioner, the fences on the Sea Way beach will come down this spring, to "allow the dunes to replenish the beach." I'm not sure if this will work or not, but it's worth a try. Those fences are in disrepair at the moment, but will be taken out (hopefully) prior to Memorial Day. Guess I need to start getting bids on that bit of work. Have a great day, and a great Spring holiday!
