Sand has arrived at Seaford Beach !

We took a walk along our beach yesterday and found sand !

The beach here is shingle and we have glorious white cliffs along this stretch of the coastline.. In the 1980's a huge transformation took place and our beach was changed as Seaford was under threat of flooding. They brought in boulders from Spain and tons of shingle from Littlehampton were pumped onto the beach from a ship. The groins were removed and we no longer have the traditional seaside look of Eastbourne, our neighbour, around 10 miles away. Sadly this left us with a large open expanse, some would argue for the better due to the possibility of floods occuring after winter storms. But others disagree. Mother Nature always fights back, and each year we have huge trucks shovelling up tons of shingle back to the top of the beach and flattening it out. It remains somewhat dustly and unsightly at the top as the sea doesn't reach that bit to wash it. But at the moment we have been blessed with beautiful sands, which I hope will remain a while... if you live here, go look as you may never see it again..

The photo showing the groins was taken today at Eastbourne and the other is of Seaford Beach as it is now.
