Beacon's Beach Bluff Failure

Beacon's has beautiful bluffs.  The only problem is that they are made of sand.

That's me, Kenzie, scoring a screamer to the sand; "I shred dude..."

In the background is the bluff, about 1995, below the 800 block of Neptune Avenue. That whole area underneath the white house gave way.

This is the same area after the slide:

My dad says, "Sort of the same way a ripped abdomen in your 20's gives way, over the years, to too many six packs of beers... it drops."  He also tells me not to stand near this because it is an active landslide.

bluff failure at beacon's beach - be careful, dude

Read about an unfortunate death due to bluff failure near Stone Steps

"Rebecca Kowalczyk, 30, was killed in a landslide Jan. 15 in Leucadia while sitting on the beach watching her husband surf. Her death prompted the City Council to ask city staff to investigate ways, such as limiting irrigation, to prevent similar tragedies."  So sad... :(((
