Clam Pass


Collier County beaches are vulnerable to erosion.  Many need to be "renourished" every few years.  (That is code for having sand trucked in or dredged up.)  Clam Pass is nearly closed,
so it is being dredged, and the nearby beaches (like this one) will be receiving much needed sand.

Good to know this beach will get some much needed sand. Hope rising sea levels don't cause further problems here.

yes, our environment is definitely changing in many ways! I haven't been commenting for a few days because of a family emergency. Go here for explanation: http://visualstpaul.blogspot.com/2016/05/memorial-for-my-sister.html

I can see that the beach is lacking some serious sand. Hope they can get it soon.

And such nice white sand it is, jack!

That's very interesting. I don't know much about this process.

I guess sand on our beaches gets moved around and no-one does much about it. It's not fine and white like this.
