Beach Erosion


Goosefare Brook streams through the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, dividing Saco from Ocean Park. It’s a moving line because each winter, nor’easters scour out a new bed for the mouth of the brook. Some years it’s serpentine, others not.

Goosefare exits the salt marshes through a very sandy beach. Here, the brook giveth and the brook taketh away. Last year’s landmarks are washed away by this year’s tides. As there’s rip-rap to protect the road, and houses are set far enough back, it really doesn’t concern people overmuch. Not that there’s much anyone can do, because no one will ever win an argument with the North Atlantic.

This is a favorite small painting of mine, with its peachy, pearly light set against the blues and greens of the foreground. It would make a fine accent piece.
