We Need More Sand

Dear Editor:

I must of fallen asleep for a few weeks because I forget what the plan was for the beach. Those trap bags leaning on the baffle walls, I thought, were supposed to be the base of the dunes, either primary or secondary. Maybe I got it wrong. So many ideas floating (no pun) that I may have some ideas jumbled together. Anyway, is it a good idea to have all those bags resting up against the baffle walls with no sand on the other side of the wall to stabilize it? If a storm hit now wouldn’t the void between the dune they built and the baffle walls they just put up create a pool of water, with thousands of pounds of pressure pushing on this wall that has thousands of tons of sand already pushing on it cause it to fail? Is the Army Corps of Engineers leaving the replenishment of sand on the homeowners’ side to the homeowners? If so, I am offering my kid’s sandbox sand since it doesn’t get much use anymore, the kids are a little older now. First come first served basis, you understand. Bring four compound buckets. That oughta do it.
