08/10/09 - To The Lighthouse

We didn't time the tides perfectly, but we made it out to the New Dungeness Light and couldn't help noticing the changes. The beach is much sandier than it has been, and that made for easier going. The sandbar out past the turn where the lighthouse becomes visible seems to have disappeared, but the big news is that it is once again possible to approach the lighthouse from the beach. For a while the beach had been so eroded that you had to cut inland and approach by the route they use for the beach buggies. It is nice to have the old approach back.

For a bit of history, you can click on the Dungeness Spit keyword.
