:) Just curious if anyone knows if the new inlet south of matanzas has been named yet? If not can I name it?
If the area is breached anyways, I think that it would be a fantastic plan to develop it so that the future erosion can be managed in a predictable way.
Flagler County can use this natural resource and Inlet to bring it back onto it's feet and succeed!
People with Big Boats, will suddenly be Very interested in buying property here. It will also become a stop along the way for ocean travelers. The economic boon would be very welcome!
I would rather my tax money go to a project like this, than any desalination project!
How about "El-Stupido Inlet" for people actually wanting to build homes on such a fragile piece of property that could easily become a new inlet or flooded by a hurricane? Developers should not be allowed to build on property like that!
Duncan said he believes it's easier for him to adapt to the changes than to alter the beach.
"I don't think you'd want to change the topography," he said. "Mother Nature goes in cycles, so I'd leave her alone."
And, at least where it comes to artificial reefs and permanent man-made structures, Finkl agrees.
"These things have their place," he said, "but it's easy to make a boo-boo. We say we bury our mistakes with sand -- or if you make a mistake with sand, it will eventually correct itself.
"If it's not done right, a permanent structure can make things worse."
