After years of warnings and actions by many to halt or remove the revetment on Patricia and Arthur Beach, we are very sad to report “we told you so”.

As another season passes, the beach is further beginning to look exactly like what we were told it would.  The quiet truth of science once again trumps the loud volume of the nay-sayers.  Severe scouring of the rocks has revealed rocks and stones and the further continuing removal of all and any sand from this once pristine beach, shows it is doomed.  The amount of people that looked at it this weekend with both shock and awe, was telling.   The wordless sadness at what we are losing was profound.  People simply did not have the words.

Make no mistake.  A truly great gift of a beach has been taken from many of us.  Let the pictures do the talking:

If these pictures bother you, don’t simply mourn and walk on.  Do something.  Voicing your concern to council is a very good first step.  They all campaigned on making things better on the beaches at VB.   This is an epic fail.
