We understand it may be tempting to climb the breakwaters at the end of each groin for the view, the “adventure”, or to fish from a different spot. BUT PLEASE DON’T DO IT! It is not safe for children or adults to climb the rocks. The breakwaters are there to protect the beach. They are very carefully constructed with larger and smaller rocks to prevent beach erosion and to protect the marsh. They are also carefully seeded on the water-facing side with oyster shells to form a living shoreline.
Climbing the rocks, fishing from the rocks, or otherwise disturbing the design and construction, risks both personal injury and loss of breakwater integrity. Let’s make sure our investment in the beauty of our community is there for us to enjoy today and share with our children and grandchildren in the next generation.
