A walk along the beach at Flying Point today, Sunday, November 4th in an easterly direction to Mecox Inlet, revealed a large beach erosion project. Massive trucks and payloaders were moving sand to what appears to be a private beach front home.
Along other stretches of the beach in Bridgehampton we saw sand berms recently recreated to protect at least one public beach and a washover caused by Sandy.
Kudos to the Trustees for taking care of our public beaches and access points, but why private homes?
In previous operations I was informed that homeowners were charged for "our" sand. In this case I wonder whether the charge, if there is one, is sufficient to cover the loss of sand taken from Mecox Inlet, which is now denuded and flat.
