The Cove used to be a naturally replenished barreling sand bar. It broke both right and left but the left was much better. However, nowadays it breaks rarely and only during a peaky wind swell.

A breach was formed in the adjacent south jetty due to a powerful winter storm. The breach then continued to widen causing localized erosion to happen rapidly. This newly caused sand movement and erosion was viewed as a hazard to boat navigation and coastal homes and businesses.

The Army Corps of Engineers filled it with 600,000 cubic yards of material and the wave has practically disappeared. Another classic gone.

Had to work early. No foggy south for me this morn. Bet it was still fun. Damn.
