Lost beach

As I sat and watch the Mississippi river during the latest round of floods here in Missouri this past spring, I’m reminded how no matter what humans do to the river (i.e. dams, levies, etc…) when she wants something, mother nature just goes and takes it.

In this case, it was a beach on Achill Island, located off the coast of Ireland in 1984. Then suddenly it was returned this past April. You can read about it in the article entitled “Lost Irish beach returns after 33 years: A freak tide just returned more than 1,000 feet of sand wiped out by a brutal winter storm on Achill Island” by Michael d’Estries over at Mother Nature Network.
