Dune Sand Falling In Virginia Beach
The dunes of the East coast beaches are there to protect from crashing waves and rising tides, and to provide shelter for the creatures that inhabit the shore. From afar, they look sturdy and almost indestructible. But up close, we can see that they are simply made up of tiny grains of sand, and are delicate beyond belief, capable of falling apart at any moment.
