We had a great trip to Isle of Palms this year. It's been several years since our last visit to the Charleston Area/Barrier Islands (10 or so) and it was pretty eye-opening to see the beach erosion. I know it's hard to see in this picture but if you can see where the wave appear to break farther out, this is a sandbar which is accessible during low-tide. I took a few picture of Dump Trucks driving out on the bar and being loaded by an earth (sand) mover and then driving a mile or so north on the beach and dumping the sand. I do recall on our last trip during one of my morning walks noticing the tide getting very close to the golf course but whether it's global warming, climate change, man-made erosion, there's definitely an issue on the island. Makes me wonder about St. Simons, Wadamalaw, Tybee, etc.... Regardless, I still enjoyed our brief time there and hope to return sooner than a decade later.
