My trip report from 11/25/2012 Smith Point.
As we drove into the parking lot the first thing you notice is all the deer coming over to the car looking for food.
Very sad all the grass and brush washed away.
the walkways to Smith point was full of sand and a very large pile of sand in the parking lot in front of the walk ways that wash through.
as you get to the Wilderness Visitor Center (located adjacent west to Smith Point County Park,)
You see the real damage Sandy did the .The Surrounding and buffered by high dunes and the boardwalk nature trail that ran behind the dunes for about mile from the Wilderness Visitor Center to the ocean beach; and the dune crossing boardwalk are all gone!!!
it looks like a flat desert you can see the Smith Point Bridge from the ocean shore.
As we walked down to Old Inlet to see the new Inlet you can see 95% of the high dunes are gone and you notice the width of the beach at least 75 yards wide.
The dock at Old Inlet was mostly gone and the ranger i spoke to said they were still looking for the toilet at Old Inlet it has not been found yet. The breach is about 100 feet wide.

Sounds like we'll still be able to get that lunch from you next summer.

I had a feeling they would just leave it alone...
The NPS doesn't like to interfere with the course of nature...

Talked to a guy who went duck hunting down by the breach last week. He said it looked they had received material to rebuild the nature boardwalk. Looks like we're in for next summer.

Re-building the boardwalk is good news. We'll be there next summer. Any talk about rebuilding the dunes and getting rid of the squitas?. Wouldn't it be nice to re-build the boardwalks down to our favorite part?

Hey Joe, remember the national seashore people are big on mother nature. I know the county is rebuilding the dunes by the pavillion. AS to the fins section, who knows. Thankfully the breach is after the good spot. As for lunch, Grocer Man, steak and lobster? For that, we'll take Thursday off from work.
