It's often hard to get from here to there. And even a summer can make it tougher. There was a trail up this dune last winter. The workers used it then. But they stopped coming. When this winter's storms arrive, the roof's blue tarp on the bay side probably won't last. Somebody must have run out of money, rights, or enthusiasm. Maybe all three.
Makes you wonder how much restoration those things can stop. Makes you wonder if they're the speed bumps of history. Makes you wonder if the paths between wherevery you are, and wherever it could be interesting to go could all be swallowed up by growths that are just lurking in wait for the exhaustion of money, rights, or enthusiasm. Fragile, this civilization thing, eh?
