This week continued to shatter temperature records for November.  Having 23C temperatures in made it easy to get things put away and get ready for winter. This is the week after the US election. Someone wrote “Biden Won” in big letters across the sand.

Sunday, November 8th, 2020 – Usually the beach is deserted in November, but plenty of people on the beach today taking advantage of the nice weather. First time I’m seen a beach volleyball game in November!
Sunday, November 8th, 2020 – Taken just east of beach one on my daily walk.
Friday, November 13th, 2020 – Walking east towards beach one on Friday around 12:00 noon.
Saturday, November 14th, 2020 – Thinks are feeling more seasonably now – a cool but sunny day looking west. You can see that waves have been throwing all kinds of debris up on the beach.
Saturday, November 14th, 2020 – Looking east across the main beach – deserted on a Saturday morning.

November brings epic storms. The worst of the damage was down overnight and I’m afraid I didn’t get pictures of the actual wind. The damage was shocking.  The high water is the main reason for all the damage,

Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 – looking east from 18th street to a brand new shoreline.
Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 – a storm sewer drain ripped from the ground.
Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 – the extension to the storm sewer in the previous pictures swept up far from shore. This pictures shows how high the waves must have been.
This garage near 17th street north is far from the shore. This shows how far the waves reached.
The rocks that made up this retaining wall scattered by the waves.
Monday, November 4th, 2019 – Near 13th street – last week I could walk up gently sloping paths from the shore. Today nothing but a vertical wall. I estimate we lost 20 feet of shoreline since last week.
Monday, November 4th, 2019 – A damaged picnic table swept away near beach one
