New Sea Caves (#605)

Beach erosion here at Westport has been ongoing since the winter storms.  Very high tides come crashing in against the hillsides causing landslides.

The rubble then washes out to sea leaving gaping holes in the rocks.  As the waves continue their erosive action, new sea caves are created.

It is amazing to see the transformations,  yet I wonder how long before these new caves succumb to the relentless sea.

    Eroding…yes, many beaches in Sweden suffer from this. These caves though, look interesting. Here it is mostly sand being lost to the sea and beaches creeping up to the houses.

    Very cool! Makes you wonder what the beach will come to look like over time.

    • First the dirt and plants and boulders fall out of the hillside, then they are washed away by the ocean. Hard rock remains. Until it too is eroded away by the sea. After that the waves eat more land. An unquenchable thirst.

    That last photo looks a bit like a sphinx.
