While the loss of dunes to Hurricane Matthew may not have been desired, a surprise was revealed on North Beach–a long-buried bench at the end of the boardwalk, overlooking the beach. I had totally forgotten about the existence of this bench–built in the 80s/90s?–since lost under the dunes, until now–and how nice it is to have it back!
Which leads to some questions. Will this remain a feature of the beach? If not, why? If it does, can more of these be added at the other boardwalks (assuming high tide allows)?
We have already found this bench to be a wonderful place to take a break–before or after taking a stroll–and meet other residents. My wife and I would heartily encourage keeping this bench and adding more.
