Shine Road follows the top of the bluff for a mile or so. Not much room left and in a hundred years the beach plans to be where eastbound lane is now. Someday the road will get relocated, but not before the county spends many years and an awful lot of money trying to save it.
This winter, we've seen good wind storms practically every week. The bridge was closed for 60-70 mph gusts shortly after this picture was taken (enough time for me to get across). Glad it didn't sink like it did in 1979. Usually when this bridge keeps me from getting home for dinner, it's because I have to wait for it to open so a Trident sub can go through (you might ask why the submarines can't go under a floating bridge, but I doubt it's really that simple).
