Figure 5. Each big storm moved the ocean 15 feet closer to the bath house. Only 75 feet of ground remained between the erosional scarp and the bath house. The vertical cut down to the beach is 5-10 feet below the grade the bath house sits on. Ropes tied fallen trees together and then were secured to living trees to hold them in place.
