A line in the sand, PVIC
I am always amused by people who ask why I walk on the same beach two or three times a week. "After all, it's just sand and water, isn't it?" Well....yes and no. Both of those things are very susceptible to movement. Wind moves both of them and water moves sand. Over the past year the prevailing winds have allowed the beach to slowly creep up. The white line is the edge of a seawall in front of the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club (PVIC). A few years ago, our granddaughter loved to run and jump off this wall. There was a three foot drop to the beach. Now, when we have a Nor'easter, the beach comes over the wall. Nature is never static.
