Storms & More Erosion

IMGP8977 The past few weeks has seen more erosion along the Venus Bay beach in many locations. The profile of the upper beach is also steeper (more the classic winter berm) in front of the recent erosion. The erosion scarps are up to 3m high, probably the highest this year.

These are classic features of low pressure (storm surge) corresponding with higher tides and strong on-shore swells. You’ll see the sand is still there, as a wider beach and sand bars at low tide.
