Last evening I wanted to see how the late afternoon water was looking. I decided to take the short drive to the water and was glad to see the beginning of the reversal of beach nourishment. Today I read that the State of New Jersey is looking to increase, well double, the funding for breach replenishment. That comes on the heels of beaches in Ocean County being closed after Hermine due to dangerous conditions caused by erosion. While it's not like it was, as least there is a change in direction and a place for big fish to ambush little fish. "The Pocket" used to be deep, and very productive. Below is a picture of Charlie Shapiro working along "the beach".
