More Sand at Torrey Pines State Beach

Lots of activity at the beach this morning.

Truckloads of sand being dumped along the shore.

While a bulldozer moves it all around.

If you think about all the sand we take home in our shoes, hair and bathing suits after a day at the beach and then you multiple that by the tons of visitors that go to the beach every day.

That is a lot of sand that is no longer at the beach.

Or do they bring in mountains of sand because of natural erosion from tidal conditions?

Hmmmm, probably the latter.

Wish they would dump a load of shells while they are going to all that trouble.

Our beaches have lots of pretty rocks but there is a dearth of sea shells.

You heard me.

A dearth.
