I don't remember seeing this many waves breaking on the shoreline (without a major storm). I have had quite a lot of beach erosion in the past few weeks. Anyone have any clues to why this is happening. I would hate to have to put in a bulkhead. I don't like them at all. I am sure some of it is caused by the loss of the turtle grass due to the sargassum over the past few years.

It's something that happens from time to time ...... and then the sand comes back. Watch your own stretch of beach for a year and make the big decisions on management afterwards. Each area has different currents so what works for one area might be the wrong thing for another. A very gentle (and often effective) effort that can be tried now (and tweaked over time) is to get medium size rocks (6"-8" across) and place them parallel to the beach, about 5-10 feet out from the shorline. I've seen it work wonders in several areas - it takes a couple of months, but the sand that is loosened tends to get caught and doesn't travel elsewhere. another suggestion is a 5-10 foot line of rocks (doesn't have to be more than one course high) perpendicular to the shoreline down-current from the waves.
